Triumph's Rik Emmett, Mike Levine and Gil Moore In The Studio

(hennemusic) Rock radio series In The Studio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands heads north to Canada this week for the "Best of" Triumph as part of its Medium Rare series.

Triumph members Rik Emmett, Mike Levine and Gil Moore sit down with host Redbeard for an honest, heartwarming and hysterically funny interview about how this three-piece Toronto outfit made it in North America, first as an upstart live act and then
as platinum selling recording artists.

After years of playing in bands with multitudes of members, Triumph intentionally designed themselves as a trio. "The idea was really practical that we only wanted three musicians," says Moore. "We thought,' there's never going to be a tie vote'. (Laughs) That sounds crazy but that was part of it. The whole idea about what we wanted to do musically, we were looking at bands like ZZ Top, Cream, Zeppelin…generally dealing with no rhythm guitar and no keyboards. That was part of the philosophy of what we wanted to do musically. We knew the limitations. I use to always say,' In a three piece band there is no place to hide'." more on this story
