German guitarist Axel Rudi Pell is one of our time’s most distinguished practitioners of classic, melodic hard rock in the spirit of Rainbow. He debuted as early as 1984 with the band Steeler, with whom he made four albums prior to leaving as a result of the band’s increasing poppiness.

Unlike many others having enjoyed this long a career, Axel’s popularity shows no sign of waning. On the contrary, his fanbase keeps increasing, not least in Sweden.

This makes his return to SRF a highly anticipated one, and his now classic band lineup is still intact: Axel himself, his Steeler colleague Volker Krawczak on bass, keyboard player Ferdy Doernberg (Rough Silk, Uli Jon Roth), drummer Mike Terrana (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, Rage) and of course singer Johnny Gioeli (Hardline).
