DiMarzio, Inc., the Staten Island, New York-based company that manufactures magnetic pickups for electric guitars, has posted a four-minute video clip of TWISTED SISTER guitarist Eddie Ojeda talking about his first hand-wound Super Distortion pickup, his DiMarzio cables and straps, and his solo projects. Check it out below.
Said Ojeda: "Right now I'm working on my second solo album [entitled 'Pick A Window, You're Leaving']. I hope to have some guest artists, like I did on the first one. On the first one I had Ronnie James Dio, Joe Lynn Turner, Rudy Sarzo on bass… Dee Snider [of TWISTED SISTER] sang a song as well. I had quite a few guest artists and I hope to do the same on this album. I just don't know who I'm gonna get yet. But it should be a nice surprise."
Eddie Ojeda's 2006 solo album, "Axes 2 Axes", was recently made available on vinyl for the first time via Steel Legacy and Rockaholics Records. 500 hand-numbered copies of the LP were made (250 in black with pink bits configuration and 250 in a reddish/pink tint).
"Axes 2 Axes" features guest appearances by such acclaimed hard rock/heavy metal vocalists as Ronnie James Dio (DIO, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH), Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER), and Joe Lynn Turner (RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN). Rudy Sarzo (QUIET RIOT, WHITESNAKE, DIO, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) plays bass on two tracks, with Chris McCarvill handling the rest. Drummer Joe Franco (TWISTED SISTER, VINNIE MOORE, JACK BRUCE) plays on the entire record. The cover artwork for "Axes 2 Axes" was conceived by German artist Timo Wuerz.
