    Rik Emmett was definitely an under rated guitarist in my opinion.

    Ricks a good person also. I was at a fund raiser before Christmas for a bar tender that had a husband pass away. Money was to help pay for his funeral. Sitting there at the bar and he walks by and I did not recognize him untill he got up to play. Did about 4 songs and put a couple hundred bucks in the bucket.

    1 thing I find ironic...

    The very 1st thing in the video, Gil talks about being an exclusive club, just the 3 of us, that's all it will ever be, then a couple minutes later on, they are playing live as a 4 member group. I really liked Triumph. I thought, musically, they were the best act at the US Festival in '83. Not too long after that, they got another guitar player & that lost me. Shortly after that, Rik left the group, so I guess that was the point, to hand off the baton to the new guy...

    My 1st introduction was they had a huge TV ad campaign for Just A Game, where they showed the band playing Moving On & Lay It On the Line, w/ full explosions & lights. I was a kid & thought, "Man, these guys are great!" & had to rush (no, not RUSH) out & get the Just A Game album. It actually had a game board on the gatefold, even though it was a single disc...

    They were another power trio from Canada, that were fashioned after Led Zep in some ways. Both RUSH & them had been refereed to as Canadian Zep at points...

    Excellent band from another time. A time when you could take your kids & whole family to the concert & not worry about stage antics & crowd drama so much...

    I thought that these guys never received much credit if any. Randy Jackson's use of a double neck in many ways reminded me of Rick Emmett...

    Triumph was my absolute favorite band in the early 80's. Saw them at least 5 times in Pittsburgh, PA. My wife and I saw Rik Emmett a few years back at a club in Philly. What a gentlemen, funny guy and all around class act. And very underrated.

    Probably my biggest guitar influence...

    Can't wait to check this out later.

    No, their equipment went buh-bye....

    http://www.thedoor.com/bio.html

    Just as a bit of road trivia, Zebra later had standout groups like Dream Theater, Queensryche, and Bryan Adams open for them. They were twice featured on two nationally syndicated radio programs, the King Biscuit Flour Hour (concerts) and Rockline (interviews). The largest crowd Zebra played to was about 50,000 as the opening act for Sammy Hagar at Chicago's Soldier Field. Another huge crowd was at a 1983 rock festival at City Park Stadium in New Orleans, featuring Bryan Adams, Zebra, Foghat, and Journey. Finally, as a touring "lowlight", the band had its equipment stolen after a 1981 Houston gig. Fortunately, they were rescued from near extinction when Long Island rock club supergroups Twisted Sister, Rat Race Choir, the Good Rats, and Southern Cross staged a benefit concert on Zebra's behalf. The equipment was replaced, and the band rolled on.

    When Sport of Kings was released Rik Emmett had Rick Santers (guy#4)join the band for that tour. Reason being Santers co-wrote "Take a Stand" and plays on the studio track. Emmett said he could not play that song live without a second guitarist. On the next LP Surveilence, Steve Morse played the second guitar in the dualing solo sequence for "Headed for Nowhere" and the acoustic guitar on "All the Kings Horses". Emmett left before a tour to support that lp happened. 4 years later Gil and Mike hired fellow Canadian axe slinger Phil X for their last studio lp Edge of Excess. So technically Santers toured with them but was never listed as an official member of Triumph. I have been a huge fan of Triumph since I first heard them in 1978. I have seen them every time they came to town. I was crushed when they split in 1987. Glad to see they mended fences for Rocklahoma. Now if we could just get a studio lp and tour out of them....

    Not to change the subject but did any of you actually play Just a Game? You opened up the album and it had a board game....we used to play that all the time back in the early 80's....seen Triumph around 1981 in Seattle....one of my favorites.
