JAKE E. LEE Recording Material With New Heavy Rock Project

Former OZZY OSBOURNE/BADLANDS guitarist Jake E. Lee has launched a new heavy rock project with Vinnie Castaldo (drums), Fate-Al (PALEFACE) on vocals and Karma Cheema (AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE, OTEP) on guitar. The group recently entered The Tone Factory studios in Las Vegas to record its first material. More information will be made available soon.

According to antiMUSIC, Jake E. Lee and original GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler will make guest appearances on ENUFF Z'NUFF's upcoming 12th studio album, due later in the year.

Entitled "Lost in Vegas", the disc was recorded primarily in "Sin City," with some additional tracking having taken place in Chicago.

MelodicRock.com recently reported that Jake E. Lee is featured on singer Mickey Thomas (JEFFERSON STARSHIP)'s new album, which is currently being recorded at The Tone Factory. Also scheduled to appear on the CD are Aynsley Dunbar (JOURNEY, WHITESNAKE, UFO) on drums, and Danny Miranda (BLUE ÖYSTER CULT , QUEEN + PAUL RODGERS) on bass. A late 2008 release via Direct Music is expected.

Jake E. Lee's "covers" album, "Retraced", was released in the U.S. in April 2005 via Shrapnel Records. The CD, which was engineered by Michael Lardie (GREAT WHITE), features the following lineup of musicians:

Jake E. Lee (OZZY OSBOURNE, BADLANDS): guitars
Chris Logan (MSG): Vocals
Tim Bogert (VANILLA FUDGE, BECK, BOGERT & APPICE): Bass
Aynsley Dunbar (WHITESNAKE, MSG, UFO): Drums

All the songs were recorded in a "power trio" format ala BADLANDS and the tracks for the project are cover songs along that style (bluesy power rock).
