Billy Sheehan and Paul Varga (Talas) Interview

Sunday, August 12, 2012
Out of all the low dough and free shows that frequent the Western New York area during the summer, the one show most people were looking forward to seeing was the reunion of the Buffalo, NY, band Talas.
Original Talas members Dave Constantino, Paul Varga and Billy Sheehan got together and played a memorable show on Saturday July 28, 2012, outside the Hard Rock Café in Niagara Falls, NY. The band returned to the Hard Rock and the next day, the band returned to do special meet and greet for their fans. We sat down with Billy and Paul to talk about the show, prospects for more reunion shows and will there be any future Talas releases via DVD or new music in general. We find out these answers, along with Billy and Paul sharing stories about their first gig as Talas and their most memorable tour with Van Halen. "Sink Your Teeth" into this interview and enjoy one of Buffalo NY's finest exports besides chicken wings: Talas!
Thanks to Carolyn Moser and Ron Kubiak from the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls, NY for their assistance in helping set up the interview with Talas.
