Amid his busy recording and touring schedule, bassist Billy Sheehan (DAVID LEE ROTH, TALAS) took out time this past fall to contribute the liner notes to the just-released "Just Like Paradise: A Millennium Tribute to Diamond David Lee Roth". Among other things, Sheehan praised Dave for "changing my whole point of view on communicating to the audience from stage, of balance between showmanship and musicianship, and of the importance of living life like you mean it." Sheehan is presently touring with Steve Vai and is continuing to promote his recently released solo album, "Cosmic Troubadour".Available via Versailles Records, "Just Like Paradise: A Millennium Tribute to Diamond David Lee Roth" features several interesting rock pairings, including European rocker Chris Catena teaming up with former POISON guitarist Blues Saraceno on "Goin' Crazy", Italian singer Chris Heaven and ALTARIA bassist Marko Pukkila (teaming up with former DIO guitarist Rowan Robertson and ex-BLACK SABBATH/DIO drummer Vinny Appice on "And the Cradle Will Rock" and LILLIAN AXE singer Derrick LeFevre on "Just Like Paradise"). The album also features Terry Lauderdale (HEATHEN) with VAN HALEN tribute band HOT FOR TEACHER performing the VAN HALEN smash hit "Hot for Teacher".
