“RnR is the Greatest Triumph album ever, from beginning to end, there is no dull moments here.”
“I still listen to all the albums even now. My son is now getting into Triumph and I often have to take the cd’s out of his player.”— Ian, Eastleigh, England
The rumors that have been sort of blowing in the wind are that Van Halen want to go back out yet again next year, but they’re going to need some sort of support to make the packaging a little more interesting. Because Triumph hasn’t really ever toured in any kind of a nostalgia way, I think Live Nation kind of goes, “Oh, yeah, you guys would be perfect for that.” So, we’ll see sort of the size and the shape and the glitter of the golden carrots that they have.
Join Genghis and Ragman and legendary Triumph bassist Mike Levine for a chat. Mike Discusses Triumph’s latest greatest hits package as well as the future of the classic band.
Listen in on Rik Emmett’s interview with Sound + Vision Radio. Rik shares his thoughts on the classic ‘83 US Festival, Triumph, the current state of the business, technology, and more.
Mike Levine from one of Canada most loved Classic Rock bands TRIUMPH talks about the new Greatest Hits Remixed CD & DVD package.
“In the Beginning is one of the BEST albums ever!!! Blinding Light Show is my favorite Triumph song.”
“I loved the soaring melodies of the songs, the catchy hooks, and still the underlying Triumph fire. Great stuff.”
“It must have been Follow Your Heart and Spellbound that got me interested, the rest of the Thunder Seven really hooked me.”
“I saw them in Moncton, New Brunswick Canada. They were awesome! I loved the way the Drums were moving back and forth on Stage! The light system was awesome!”
The trio – bass player Mike Levine, guitarist Rik Emmett and drummer Gil Moore – pack a dynamic visual and musical package into their shows and Citizen rock critic Bill Provoke called their NAC concert last January “a rock and roll battlefield and victory celebration.”
Whoever invented the term “Rock -n- Roll Machine” must have had a band very much like Triumph in mind. Triumph relentlessly churns out a style of music that the experts regularly pronounce to be deader than a doornail. And if it weren’t for the millions of people who regularly buy Triumph records and attend Triumph concerts, the experts would be right.
