Video footage of THE JIMMY CRESPO PROJECT, the new band led by Jimmy Crespo — best known as the guitarist who replaced Joe Perry in AEROSMITH from 1979 to 1984 — performing the AEROSMITH classic "Bolivian Ragamuffin" during last night's (Saturday, November 6) concert at Green Valley Ranch in Las Vegas, Nevada can be viewed below. As previously reported, the show was filmed for a live promotional video.THE JIMMY CRESPO PROJECT features Crespo, vocalist Chris Van Dahl (formerly of L.A. GUNS), bassist Kyle Kyle (BANG TANGO) and guitarist Michael Ellis (SIN CITY SINNERS).
Crespo appeared on AEROSMITH's "Night In The Ruts" album and co-wrote the majority of songs on 1982's "Rock In A Hard Place", performing almost all the guitar duties on the LP. After years of performing with such artists as Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks, Billy Squier, Dee Snider and Lita Ford, Jimmy has returned to center stage with THE JIMMY CRESPO PROJECT. 2012 will mark the 30-year anniversary of the release of "Rock In a Hard Place" and for the next two years Jimmy Crespo will let the music do the talkin'. THE JIMMY CRESPO PROJECT also has plans to release an album of origina material, that promises to pick up where classic AEROSMITH left off.
