Radioactive (rock project)
Radioactive is a rock project by Swedish and US musicians.
Radioactive was founded in 2000 by the Swedish guitarist Tommy Denander . As early as the early 1990s he had the plan with members of the American rock band Toto to start a joint project. This idea was taken up again in 1999. To support them, other well-known artists from the west coast were brought into the studio, such as the singer Fee Waybill , the former Toto members Joseph Williams and Fergie Frederiksen and the keyboardist and jazz musician Greg Phillinganes . In addition, some leading session musicians from Scandinavia, such as the singers Geir Rönning and Kristoffer Lagerström , worked on the debut album.
2001 the first album Ceremony of Innocence was released. This record had great success in the field of melodic hard rock. For this reason some of the artists, including Frederiksen and Rönning, soon gathered together again in the studio to work on a successor.
The second album, Yeah , hit the record stores in 2003 and was also quite a success. This success, but also the fun in the studio with the many different musicians, motivated Denander to do so in November
2005 to release the third album Taken . Again he was supported by over 30 well-known artists, such as Journey guitarist Neal Schon , Yngwie Malmsteen and Michael Landau as well as by almost all current and former Toto members.
Well -known musicians were also represented in the album F4ur , released in 2015 under the Escape (H'Art) label . In addition to Toto singer Bobby Kimball , Kansas keyboarder and singer Steve Walsh , Robin Beck and her husband, the House of Lords frontman James Christian , the late musicians Jimi Jamison and Fergie Frederiksen can also be heard again. The distinctive voice of Survivor singer Jimi Jamison unmistakably opens the 13-song album.
