Information

In a career that spans nearly 30 years and includes over 60 album credits, Joe Lynn Turner remains one of rock and roll's most distinctive, soulful and expressive vocalists.

In 1976, Joe enjoyed his first taste of national success with Fandango, a band described as an eclectic mix of R&B, pop, country, jazz and melodic rock. After Fandango split, he received a phone call from legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore. Turner’s work with Fandango prompted an audition and Blackmore was so impressed that he immediately enlisted Joe in Rainbow, a band that he formed after he left Deep Purple. Ironically, Joe spent his formative years covering Deep Purple songs and now he found himself fronting a band with two former members: Blackmore and Roger Glover. Rainbow, while popular in Europe and Japan, had not garnered the same level of notoriety in the U.S.A. It was Turner’s contributions that helped catapult the group to a new level of success.Turner co-wrote and/or sang on Rainbow singles that helped define the melodic rock genre: “I Surrender,” “Can’t Happen Here,” “Jealous Lover,” “Death Alley Driver,” “Street of Dreams” and “Can’t Let You Go.”

In 1984, Blackmore reunited with Deep Purple. This gave Turner freedom to work on his first solo album, “Rescue You. In the winter of 1989, Ritchie Blackmore and Deep Purple needed to find a lead singer to replace Ian Gillan. Several high profile vocalists were considered. In a second ironic twist of Fate, Turner was invited to audition and found himself fronting one of the major bands he was influenced by as a teenager!

Van Halen Tribute 5150

Onlangs werd Eddie Van Halen verkozen tot Beste Rockgitarist Aller Tijden. Gitaristen overal ter wereld raken nog altijd geïnspireerd door Eddie’s unieke sound, riffs en solo’s en willen dan ook zijn gitaarspel en techniek imiteren. Zo ook de West-Brabantse gitaristen Conrad Hultermans en Sebas Honing. Samen kwamen ze op het idee om deze bewondering op het podium tot uiting te brengen. Ze vonden al snel medestanders in Frank Dries (basgitaar), Stefan Maas (drums) en Stan Verbraak (zang). Van Halen Tribute Band “5150” was geboren. 5150 is in staat om de originele sound van vooral de eerste Van Halen albums zeer goed te benaderen. Het repertoire is voornamelijk gebaseerd op het vroegere werk van de band, maar er worden ook uitstapjes gemaakt naar latere albums.
