Graham Bonnet: Yes I did have regrets when I left Rainbow. I should have stayed a little bit longer but when we were rehearsing for the new album we had no material. We were in Copenhagen and the guys were not turning up to rehearse. Sometimes it was just me, Roger Glover and Don Airey and sometimes Ritchie, Don Airey and me but the band never actually got together. We had been playing and wanted to start writing some new tunes for the new album but the only song we had was "I Surrender" written by Russ Ballard.
That was the only thing I started to record on. I did some backing vocals but they were taken off later. I flew back to Los Angeles and I left the band because nothing was happening.
But yes, I wish I had stayed a little bit longer.
