Oni Logan, powerful rock vocalist with Lynch Mob (ex-Dokken
guitarist's band) and the superb Logan/Robertson CD. Seriously, if you
like the Doors, Led Zep and/or the Tea Party get a copy of this CD -
quality classic rock.

Currently, auditioning guitarists, bass players, drummers and
keyboardists for my new solo project. For interested musicians send
your package to
Big Toe Productions,4821 Lankers Blvdblvd, Suite F 277,N. Hollywood CA 91601
Although I must add, I've been receiving a lot of great technical
players, and one would think that's what I'm looking for, but what
I'm mostly interested in is the quality, maturity and identity of
their songwriting ability. Other than that we released a three song
EP called "I" witch is available on www.onilogan.com as well as
|2. What has been the highlight(s) and lowpoint(s) of your career to
I would have to say going to Japan a couple of times, and Europe was
just fantastic. Unfortunately I didn't capture it on film. The lowest
point was when the record company decided not to release thewitchlets
Demise record, wich is now called Logan/Robertson. That situation
left a bitter taste in my mouth for a few years. I simply walked
away from it all, literally.
|3. Who have been your biggest influences on your career?
As a kid it was your classic rockers, anything from Bowie to, houses
of the holy, David Byron, Uriah Heep,Rainbow......
|4. Robertson/Logan - you released a superb album with Rowan Robertson
(ex-Dio) (see my review at foot to this e-mail). How did this come
about and is it freely available? Were there ever any live dates to
back this release up?
We were introduced to each other by Wendy Dio. When he had just
gotten over to the US for the Dio gig. We were both pretty young and
California was shining new. After he did his run with Dio and I with
the Lynch Mob, again Wendy, suggested that we should get together for
a writing session. Naturally that led into a friendship and hard work
as collaborators. We eventually found our sound as well as our bassist
Spencer Campbell and drummer Scott Coogan. We landed a deal with
Atlantic records out of a rehearsal room, found the producer Dave
Jerden, and off we went. The alweb site available on the website but
we decided to change the name from Violets Demise to Logan/Robertson.
There is a video available, live at the Key Club. As far as future
gigs we'll have to see.
Lynch Mob - what was the highlight of your time with this band?
Would you ever work again with George Lynch?
Getting to travel was the highlight. Working with George again, only
time will tell.
|6. What did you do after leaving Lynch Mob? Would you ver consider
being in a band environment again or are you happier working solo
with a variety of musicians?
Sure I would consider being in a band. I would love to find a
situation that was interesting, creatively, and all they were missing
was the voice, yes.
|7. Last thing you read?
The Mystic Masters Speak, by Vernon Howard.
|8. Is there anything else you want to achieve in the music business?
Who would you have liked to and/or would like to work with?
There is a lot I would like to achive, but mainly keeping the music
flowing at a steady pace, with a company that distributes worldwide.
As far as who I'd like to work with, sure, Jeff Beck or Jimmy Paige,
Ritchie Blackmore or Keith Richards, Brian May, any of these fellows
would do just fine.
|9. Outside of business, what do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Going to the ocean.

Happiness is being a real and free person.
