JOE LYNN TURNER To Begin Recording New Album This Week

Former DEEP PURPLE/RAINBOW singer Joe Lynn Turner has issued the following update:

"I am also glad so many of you like SUNSTORM . . . [The album] is now out in the USA through Locomotive Records and you can also download individual songs through iTunes and other popular music download sites!

"On a related note... I have had so many positive, overwhelmingly amazing comments and reviews for SUNSTORM that I have decided to take my forthcoming solo album in a similar direction. Right now I am working through some details with my producer and good friend, Bobby Held, and the week before Christmas we start recording! I have also just completed a couple national commercials, including a second one for Domino's Pizza. I did do some acting 'on camera' in a Domino's spot that is being tested in some markets in the USA right now.

"There is some talk of some shows in Russia next year but nothing is official yet."

As previously reported, Joe Lynn Turner and guitarist Karl Cochran (ACE FREHLEY, NUCLEAR ASSAULT) recently taped the "New York Rocks TV" show. It's a popular entertainment scene variety cable show based in Staten Island but shown all over the New York City area. You will have to check local listings to find out exactly when the show will air on your cable system and on what channel. It also streams on the Internet via the Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
