Here’s a career roller coaster if there ever was one. Bonfire was back in the 80’s – 1987, to precise – on the threshold of big success with their second album Fireworks. Unfortunately, the follow-up Point Blank (1989) failed to take the band to the next level and after that the band was pretty much done, success-wise. Their third album Knock Out (1991) was a damn fine record but by then only a few were still interested in the band. Despite that they have never split up and kept on releasing records in an even pace – albeit with so many line-up changes they made Whitesnake look like a stable unit. However, in the last few years, Bonfire has gone Spinal Tap on us with the changes in the line-up, in this special case, their singer. Lead singer Claus Lessmann has been with the band since back in 1979 when they were called Cacumen and has since been the only original member who has played on all of their records – and the driving force in the band together with guitarist Hans Ziller. Now, Ziller was out of the band between 1989 – 1996 and has since run the band with Lessmann.
