A spokesman for The Waterloo Music Bar said: “When Ronnie James Dio left Rainbow in 1979, Ritchie Blackmore personally approached Graham Bonnet to be the new vocalist in the former Deep Purple guitarist’s hard rock outfit.

“A good move as it heralded the band’s most commercially successful period with the Down To Earth album spawning two massive hit singles in Since You’ve Been Gone and All Night Long.

“Bonnet’s career post-Rainbow has continued to develop a harder rock edge and, following success with the Michael Schenker Group and Alcztrazz, he formed The Graham Bonnet Band in 2015.
