Alcatrazz returned with ex-Alice Cooper guitarist Danny Johnson. The band recorded 'Dangerous Games' (Capitol) in 1986, but the instability of the group's lineup had taken its toll. Its members went on to other projects. Bonnet went on to record with guitarist Chris Impellitteri, before resuming his solo career. 1998 saw the release of 'The Best of Alcatrazz', which compiled tracks from all eras of the band.
In 2003, bassist Tim Luce introduced Graham Bonnet to guitarist Howie Simon. Simon was working with Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, Journey) and the Swedish group Talisman. Bonnet, Simon and Luce invited powerhouse drummer Glen Sobel to sit in with them at a few LA concerts. The group discovered they had a unique and exciting chemistry, but prior commitments kept them from venturing any further until 2007, when the band was invited to co-headline a sold-out Japanese tour with Joe Lynn Turner. The band rang in the 2008 New Year with Bay Area legends Y&T, and in January 2008, Alcatrazz was a featured performer at the Fender Guitars Custom Shop’s annual ‘Fret Fest’ at NAMM. In July 2008 the band was invited to headline BerkRock Festival in Berkovitsa, Bulgaria.
ALCATRAZZ is back! The band is currently writing material for a new album, and will be hitting stages worldwide in 2009. The band's live show incorporates all the Alcatrazz classics, as well as highlights from Graham Bonnet's years with Rainbow, MSG and Impellitteri.
