Greece's Rockpages TV recently conducted an interview with legendary hard rock singer Jeff Scott Soto (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, TALISMAN, JOURNEY). You can now watch the chat below.

Soto's latest solo album,"Damage Control", was released in March 2012 in North America via Frontiers Records.

For "Damage Control", Jeff turned to many of his past influences and most requested aspects of his career by blending the art of melodic rock with hard rock.

"I feel 'Damage Control' is more of a return to what my fans would expect to hear from me," said Jeff. "It's a perfect blend of my first two solo albums with Frontiers Records'Prism' and 'Lost In The Translation' — but also mixes in some of my favorite moments of my past bands such as TALISMAN and SOUL SIRKUS. It is heavy, AOR, hard rock with loads of great riffs and melodies."

"Damage Control" was recorded in the fall of 2011 and features appearances and writing contributions by Jeff's former and current bandmates, along with many guests, including Jamie Borger and Nalley Påhlsson (TREAT), Casey Grillo (KAMELOT), Joel Hoekstra (NIGHT RANGER) and legendary Y&T founding member Dave Meniketti.

"Damage Control" was released in two exclusive configurations; the basic version in CD jewel box includes 11 songs, while the deluxe edition in digipak format has an additional three bonus tracks and a DVD.
