BLUE ÖYSTER CULT drummer Bobby Rondinelli has officially quit the group in order to pursue his work with hard rock ensemble THE LIZARDS. Rondinelli, who has also played with the likes of BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW and RIOT, has toured and recorded with THE LIZARDS for several years now and is looking forward to exclusively dedicating his drumming talents to the band. Most recently Mike DiMeo of RIOT has taken over the lead vocal spot for THE LIZARDS. The group is currently preparing for a major tour with T&A — a new supergroup featuring Pat Travers and Carmine Appice. Plans to perform in Scandinavia, Russia, Germany and Denmark in October 2004 are in the works. Exact cities and dates will be announced soon.
