Jun Senoue on The Best of Crush 40: Super Sonic Songs:
Open Your Heart
I knew on the Internet that Johnny Gioeli whose direction after the disbanding of Hardline had not been conveyed resumed his activity in the front stage as a singer of the band of the German guitarist Axel Rudi Pell, and trying to get in touch with him somehow, the time when I obtained his contact through Doug Aldrich was July of 1998, was it? At that time, never did I expect I would end up forming a team and being active with Johnny this long time. While it is a song that decorated the opening of 3D Sonic series, it is also a song carved in the first page of Crush 40’s history.
