What has he done to be that hated? Just interested, never heard about him before.

Legendary asshole from several different forums, most notably The Gear Page and Harmony Central. Still, many of the people he's become unfriendly with are just as mean-spirited as he is, so I dunno...

But jerk? No doubt. Fortunately, he's got a huge bootleg collection, so I guess we should be thankful. :smile:

"Rock You to the Ground" is such a kickass song.

I'm really not interested in hearing Bonnet the way he sounds nowadays, so I opted not to download it. It's fresh, tho, so give it a go.

I agree.

One of the better versions I've heard from the 2009-2011 era!

Hey, that was good! The backing vocals were also great.

"Island In The Sun" is fucking brilliant, should be mentioned more often as one of his best.

Just downloaded an Alcatrazz bootleg, and thought I'd discovered a miraculous instance of Bonnet singing "Hiroshima Mon Amour" higher than the original, but it turns out the dumbass trader didn't realize the recording was running way too fast before he put it on Dime.

I just got Rainbow "Down to Earth" and I must say Bonnet is a phenomenal talent. The only "dank" song(meaning stupid in my slang) is "Since You Been Gone" lol....kinda fun, but not what I'd call Rainbow. Love's No Friend and Danger Zone just slay.

Hmmm, Down To Earth actually isn't regarded as one of his best vocal albums. He was kinda subdued throughout the album, imo. Though "Lost In Hollywood" is pretty sweet.

You need to hear "No Parole From Rock And Roll" by Alcatrazz, and Bonnet's solo album "Stand In Line".

Impellitteri, but yeah, some crazy vocals on that one. Is "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" on his self-titled solo album? Line-Up has some really great performances as well.

Yeah, Line-Up is the album I was thinking of. "I'm A Lover" will knock you on your ass.

I do believe WYSLMT is on his self-titled album. Graham does blue-eyed soul just as good as he does metal, imo.
