    most I feel strongly Reach will be a great opening for a Crock show so I am excited for that Was Jim Peterik asked to return to the band for the album and the tour No he was not What band artist would you like to tour together with as a great package We have been on some great packages since 2000 We have played with Journey REO Styx and others I d like to tour with a solo artists as that would be cool to me Rather than another band a one man show so to say Are there any plans for Survivor to play some shows in Sweden 2006 I do not see any reason why we would not spend much of our time working Europe The reaction to Reach has been great and the press so kind in both interviews and reviews It really has been a big part of our past and I always feel most at home while touring there If it were my decision we would be playing dates over there now Any plans to record a live DVD from the tour I believe I responded to this above No finite plans but certainly a huge consideration What band or artist is the biggest influence on Survivor As a band I can tell you none really As individuals you would have to ask each member Jimi Hendrix has been one of the most dominating influences on me as a player and a person I also spent so much time listening to blues as growing up as a player in Chicago put me right in the midst of it all That leads to the British influences like Eric Clapton Jeff Beck And Ritchie Blackmore What is your favourite Survivor album And why Too Hot To
