BLUE ÖYSTER CULT singer Eric Bloom has confirmed his guest appearance on the upcoming CD from MOONSTONE, the new project of Italian guitarist Matteo Filippini. Bloom will be heard on the song "On The Way To Moonstone", written by Filippini and Chris Catena.
The musical direction of MOONSTONE is being described as "genuine British-oriented '70s classic rock," not a million miles removed from the likes of FREE, JIMI HENDRIX and DEEP PURPLE. Among the other musicians set to contribute to the project are Graham Bonnet (RAINBOW, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, ALCATRAZZ, IMPELLITTERI, BLACKTHORNE), John Lawton (ex-URIAH HEEP) and Tony Franklin (ex-BLUE MURDER, WHITESNAKE).
