Guitarist Fires Back At Former Rainbow Singer

(Rock News Desk) The guitarist accused by ex-Rainbow singer Joe Lynn Turner of releasing music illegally has lashed back at his former collaborator, saying he's done nothing wrong and Turner is lying, not him.

Scott Rolaf has made the album Light of Day, featuring Turner's vocals, available for free. But the singer yesterday insisted the release was illegal, stating that he'd severed all ties with the guitarist after becoming unhappy with the way the partnership was working. Turner said: "I never confirmed plans to release the album but Rolaf published it without approval from me. That misled my fans, members of my street team and reputable media outlets. These actions are, in my opinion, nothing more than an attempt by Scott Rolaf to gain fame on my name."

Now the guitarist has lashed back, saying the singer is only interested in money. Rolaf tells Rock News Desk: "The truth of the matter is money or the lack of it. I worked hundreds of hours on this record. I never took a dime from him and helped him out on over a dozen of his own projects he did for hire. He said, 'Hey, can you help me out? I need the money.' His words." more on this story
