Rudy Sarzo (DIO, ex-QUIET RIOT, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, WHITESNAKE, OZZY OSBOURNE), Bobby Rock (SLAUGHTER), Mark Tremonti (ALTER BRIDGE, ex-CREED), Jim Gillette (ex-NITRO) and Doug Marks ("Metal Method" founder) are among the musicians scheduled to appear on the new solo CD from former NITRO guitarist Michael Angelo Batio, tentatively due in early 2005.

In other news, Michael Angelo filmed a new instructional DVD in July featuring a program designed for beginning guitarists. It will be released later this year as part of a Dean Guitars electric-guitar-amp-and-DVD package for the holidays. Dean Zelinsky will be producing the DVD in conjunction with Dean Guitars.
