Despite of continuous attempts of Covid-19 to fatally wound the music scene in it’s normal existence, Derek Sherinian (Sons Of Apollo, Black County Communion) fights back with a new solo record. Bearing the name “Phoenix”, it represents a record of life and energy which will burst through the ashes, and bring hope to all of us passionately in love with music.
Derek has expressed his keyboard playing skills alongside many great, well-known music legends, such as Alice Cooper, Billy Idol, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, and Joe Bonamassa. He was also a member of Dream Theater from 1994 to 1999. During his interesting musical journey, he has released seven solo albums as well, the last one dating back to 2011.
Today, after nine years of silence, Derek rises again.
With great honor, and privilege, Metal Jacket Magazine brings you an exclusive audio interview with the man of the hour, Derek Sherinian, who presents his eighth solo record, the “Phoenix”, on the day of it’s official release!
