Phil Vincent of Legion and D’Ercole
by Derric Miller
Legion and D’Ercole lead singer Phil Vincent checked in with Hardrock Haven to discuss his two current bands’ releases, respectively titled Code of Honour and Rock Scar; the upcoming first live show with Legion at the Z Rock Festival on May 15 in England; specific songs on the releases like “Down in Flames,” “Nothing Left to Lose” and “Last of Dying Breed;” if he’s ever going to give in and just record a Dokken cover since everyone compares him vocally to Don Dokken; if he’ll write the new Hardrock Haven theme song to follow up the incredible one he gave us in 2009; and a whole lot more.
Both the Legion and D’Ercole releases are heavy slabs of high-quality Melodic Hard Rock that oftentimes flow back and forth between AOR and sheer Heavy Metal. Vincent is one of the more prolific musicians making music today, and also one of the best. Tune in now to get to know why you need to purchase the new Legion and D’Ercole releases, and catch him at Z Rock Festival if you can.
