Drummer JOHN MACALUSO Working On Debut Solo Album

Veteran hard rock drummer John Macaluso (TNT, ARK, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JAMES LABRIE, STARBREAKER) has inked a deal with Finland's Lion Music for his first solo album, tentatively due in 2006. "This is going to be a sick one," Macaluso writes on his web site. "I have all the best players I know guest performing on it. I am writing the music and arrangements now and will start recording next week." Among the musicians scheduled to appear on the CD are Vitalij Kuprij, Tony Harnell (TNT, STARBREAKER), Alex Masi and Marco Sfogli (JAMES LABRIE).

In other news, Macaluso recently laid down the drum tracks for the debut album from the New York City-based, female fronted outfit MASTERLAST.

"This album came out so damn good," Macaluso writes, "It was produced by Fabrizio Grossi, who also produced STARBREAKER [featuring Harnell and Macaluso]. I am very psyched for this. It's some of my best drumming ever and is an EXTREMELY heavy album with hooks."
