"Daffy is going to play the guitar again, and Graham is looking forward to rocking all the fans in the areas.
"As for the Rock and Blues Custom show in Derbyshire that Graham was offered to sing, he has not gotten any details yet. We hope that it will happen, but his appearance is still up in the air. However, great news is that Graham has been invited to sing this summer in the U.K. at the 'Blues and Soul Festival' produced by his old friend Don Airey. Maybe the U.K. fans can hear the man singing the great standards again?
"Back to Dario Mollo's ELEKTRIC ZOO project, so far Graham has worked on three songs, and the vocal recordings continue in L.A., with engineering support by Tim Luce, to make a masterpiece. Also, Graham has recently done a few interviews, and one is for a RAINBOW documentary DVD by Classic Rock.
"Finally, the man has made a surprise guest appearance on Uli Roth's Sky Academy Concert on Saturday, May 26 at UCLA Ralph Freud Theater in California. Graham sang 'Love's No Friend' and 'Lost In Hollywood', backed by Uli's band. Those of you who happened to be there, lucky you!"
