Paul Shortino Talks Up "Chasing My Dream"
Here's a brand new August 2009 interview with one of the great voices in melodic hard rock - Paul Shortino. For over 25 years, Paul's been the voice behind many classic bands of the genre, including Rough Cutt, Quiet Riot, and his own Shortino band. Paul's got a great new disc out called "Chasing My Dream," which we talk about in detail here. Other topics include Paul's other current projects - including working with a certain Ron Keel, as well as an acoustic/percussion based album in Brazil that Paul will be a part of. Also, we discuss some of Paul's past projects, including the aforementioned Quiet Riot. Paul says the 1988 self-titled QR album he sang on will get a re-release, and he is considering getting the "QR" era members together for another go-round. Delving further, we chat about the state of the music business, the classic Rough Cutt period, Paul's recent guest appearance with Las Vegas rockers Sin City Sinners, and so much more. Make sure you visit Paul's website at www.paulshortino.com for all things Shortino. Thanks to Paul for the chat, he couldn't have been a more personable interview subject.
