Slash‘s bassist Todd Kerns and drummer Brent Fitz play on a song from the forthcoming solo album from former OZZY OSBOURNE/BADLANDS guitarist Jake E. Lee. Kerns states, “Anyone who knows anything is as excited about this album as I am! Gonna be rad.”
Lee last year appeared in the video for the song “We Come Undone” from reunited rockers BEGGARS THIEVES.
According to the All Music Guide, Lee helped Ozzy Osbourne score two of the most commercially successful releases of the singer’s long and illustrious career — 1983’s “Bark at the Moon” and 1986’s “The Ultimate Sin”. Lee eventually joined up with another former BLACK SABBATH singer (albeit briefly), Ray Gillen, and formed the LED ZEPPELIN/classic rock-esque outfit BADLANDS. Subsequently, Lee played briefly with a band called WICKED ALLIANCE before setting off on his own, issuing his solo debut, “A Fine Pink Mist”, in August of 1996.
Jake E. Lee‘s “covers” album, “Retraced”, was released in the U.S. in April 2005 via Shrapnel Records. All the songs were recorded in a “power trio” format ala BADLANDS and the tracks for the project were cover songs along that style (bluesy power rock).
