Guitarist Jeff Kollman, much sought-after collaborator and producer for rock luminaries such as Glenn Hughes ("Songs In The Key of Rock"), UFO's Phil Mogg ($IGN OF 4's "Dancing with St. Peter"), and the just released HTP album featuring Hughes and Joe Lynn Turner, is once again spreading his wings as a solo artist and has just announced his first-ever European tour set to commence November 10 in Hamburg, Germany .
The ever-prolific Kollman, whose resume also includes three solo albums in addition to three releases with much heralded all-star prog/fusion trio, COSMOSQUAD, including this year's "Live at the Baked Potato", will be touring with the JEFF KOLLMAN BAND, featuring drummer Charlie Waymire (EGH, SPEAK NO EVIL), and longtime friend and bassist, Kevin Chown (TONY MACALPINE, ARTENSION, UNCLE KRACKER).
This tour marks the first time that Kollman and Chown have played together since their days with top drawing Ohio-based prog metal outfit EDWIN DARE, who issued three acclaimed albums during the 1990's.
