Longtime rockers LITTLE CAESAR have been rejoined by original lead guitarist Apache. The band is now moving forward with its complete original lineup of Ron Young (vocals), Loren Molinare and Apache (guitars), Fidel Paniagua (bass) and Tom Morris (drums). Ron Young says: "We are really excited about Apache's return. His talent and style was truly missed and LITTLE CAESAR is once again whole and back to our true essence."
LITTLE CAESAR will debut the reunited original lineup at Paladino's in Tarzana, California on Friday, August 15 (having been moved up from the original August 16 date). This will be the band's first Los Angeles-area show since its sold-out House of Blues shows with RATT in April.
LITTLE CAESAR will play the Rock the Bayou festival in Houston on Saturday, August 30. The band will share the stage with the likes of SAMMY HAGAR, RATT and ALICE COOPER, during the four-day festival.
LITTLE CAESAR is currently working on material for a new studio album, tentatively due in 2009.
LITTLE CAESAR's eponymous 1990 Geffen Records debut was produced by Bob Rock (METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE CULT). The album was a no-nonsense collection of hard rock in the vein of '70s giants like BAD COMPANY and HUMBLE PIE, and was also brimming with classic R&B influences, garnering widespread acceptance and positive reviews from the rock media. The follow-up effort, "Influence", was produced by Howard Benson (DAUGHTRY, PAPA ROACH, P.O.D.) and came out in 1992. The group subsequently split up and reformed in 2002.
