"Here's To Us", the first-ever original song written and recorded by PROJECT ROCK (formerly ROCKSTAR) — the new band featuring former and current members of JUDAS PRIEST, ALICE COOPER, OZZY OSBOURNE and SCORPIONS — can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below. (Note: The track begins around the six-minute, 45-second mark.) The song was premiered earlier this month on "Drive Time Morning Show with Evgeny Shtoltz", which airs on the Moscow, Russia radio station Rock FM.
PROJECT ROCK last spring completed a week-long tour of Russia where they played classic songs from their respective bands.
The group's first Russian trek kicked off on May 18 in Moscow, with stops in Krasnodar, Rostov, Voronej, Penza and Saratov, before the tour ended on May 28 in Ufa.
PROJECT ROCK is:
* Tim "Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, DIO DISCIPLES) - Vocals
* Keri Kelli (SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, ALICE COOPER, RATT) - Guitar
* James Kottak (SCORPIONS, KINGDOM COME) - Drums
* Rudy Sarzo (OZZY OSBOURNE, QUIET RIOT, WHITESNAKE, DIO) - Bass
* Teddy "Zig Zag" Andreadis (GUNS N' ROSES) - Keyboards
In a video interview, Owens said about PROJECT ROCK: "We all have such diverse backgrounds in so many different bands that we just want to get there and play WHITESNAKE and ALICE COOPER and DIO and PRIEST and GUNS N' ROSES. So I think this project is just to go play for the fans with this special show with all these songs and all these bands."
