Danger Danger bassist Bruno Ravel has unreleased material that will probably stay unreleased
Danger Danger and The Defiants bassist Bruno Ravel was recently interviewed by All Music & All Bands: Local, National & Worldwide, and asked whether he has any more unreleased material.
Ravel replied: “I do have some unreleased material lying around, and it will probably stay that way. If it wasn’t released, it means that most likely, it wasn’t good! =]”
In terms of Ravel being frustrated by a lack of compositional input while in White Lion, the bassist advised: “It’s as simple as that. They wanted me to be a good soldier and play bass and sing. It was made clear to me by Vito that he and Tramp were the sole writers, and my songs would never be taken into consideration. I knew then It would never be a true band, so I left.”
Ravel was also asked about his time in Talas to which he stated: “The Talas lineup that I was a part of was Phil Naro, Al Pitrelli (Guitarist), Mark Miller and me. A few weeks after I joined, Mark left and was replaced by Jimmy DeGrasso (Drums.) It was a crazy time for me because I really didn’t want to be in Talas, but was desperate for a record deal (which they had.) I didn’t really like the existing material either, but was promised that it was a “new” Talas and that we’d all form the sound of the band moving forward. We could have been a monster band, but Phil had his doubts and eventually bailed. The remains were the infant stages of Danger Danger.”
