RIK EMMETT Discusses Possibility Of More TRIUMPH Reunion Shows

November 11, 2009

Tracey Lukasik of BackstageAxxess.com recently conducted an interview with TRIUMPH's Rik Emmett. Rik talks about his latest project, P.R.O., featuring Greek guitarist Pavlo and Latin guitar sensation Oscar Lopez; his collaboration with Dave Dunlop in the STRUNG-OUT TROUBADOURS, a jazz duo who have three successful records to date; and the possibility of a full-fledged TRIUMPH reunion. Watch the chat in three parts below.

As one of the godfathers of prog metal and leading lights of arena rock, TRIUMPH formed in 1975, and built a large and loyal fanbase by the late '70s on the strength of their non-stop touring schedule throughout Canada and the USA and the success of their classic albums, "Rock & Roll Machine" and "Just A Game". But it was in the 1980s when TRIUMPH truly became a force to be reckoned with, as a string of gold/platinum-certified albums ("Progressions of Power", "Allied Forces", "Never Surrender" and "Thunder Seven") and classic hits ("Fight the Good Fight", "Magic Power", "Lay It On The Line") solidified the group as one of rock's top concert attractions.
