Rainbow

I'm sure there are some Rainbow fans here!

What are your favorite Rainbow songs and why?

Myself, I like Stargazer mainly due to the vocals of RJD and Stone Cold just has a very sweet guitar solo.

I'll do for both the Dio and Joe Lynn Turner eras:

Dio:
Temple of the King, Tarot Woman, Stargazer, Long Live Rock and Roll, Lady of the Lake, Gates of Babylon, and Kill the King.

JLT:
I Surrender, Death Alley Driver, Stone Cold, Bring on the Night, Fool For the Night, Fire Dance, Street of Dreams

The Stranger in Us All "reunion" album with Doogie White from 1995 is definitely worth checking out.

Even though Dio's work was the more seminal and influencial "metal" stuff, possibly even what I'd call the first power metal works out there, I really really enjoy the Joe Lynn Turner stuff. Mostly because of JLT's voice (helluva nice guy too), but those albums really helped lay the groundwork for the melodic hard rock genre I also really enjoy.

Who was the singer in between RJD and JLT. His name slips me at the moment but he did some good songs too as I recall.


Edit: It just came to me---Graham Bonnet---Any songs of his you like?

I'll tell you watch Rainbow song does not rule, and that's "If You Don't Like Rock & Roll."


It's a good thing Dio went on to have a successful solo career, other wise Rainbow would be even less remembered than it is now!

to that I'll add A Light in the Black, Man on the Silver Mountain and Catch the Rainbow.

and I happen to like If you don't like Rock & Roll.

as far as JLT: I like Street of Deams, Stone Cold and I Surrender.

Meh, I've never been a big Graham Bonnet fan, mainly his work with Rainbow. The Alcatrazz and Impelliteri stuff he did is pretty solid though.

I can't stand the Bonnet stuff. Or most of the JLT stuff, all told.

Actually, I don't rate Rising too highly either, despite being a massive RJD fan.

It's all about Long Live Rock & Roll, Stranger In Us All and, actually, Bent Out of Shape. That's a great album.
