We are so EXCITED and Honored to bring you and 80′s guitar legend Jake E. Lee to Legendary Dobbs in Phjilly!
Gibson Guitars Magazine 10-08-12: One of the biggest brain-scratchers in metal history is the fact that Jake E. Lee isn’t king of the world. It seemed like he definitely had the potential to be exactly that when he was guitarist for Ozzy Osborne in the mid ‘80s, during the Bark At The Moon/Ultimate Sin era. His post-Ozzy band Badlands was pretty spectacular… too. But Jake just never seemed to make that push to stay up there with his contemporaries. Now Lee has revealed he’s working on a new album with producer R. Bernard Mann AKA Ronnie Mancuso and Executive Producer, Mixer, King of Active Rock Radio Kevin Churko, and he’s formed a new band (The Red Dragon Cartel) to record at least 4 tracks and then to undertake a world tour starting in summer 2013. Why only 4 tracks? Because they already have tracks recorded with Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Paul Di’Anno (ex-Iron Maiden) and Maria Brink (In This Moment). Jake says there are other big names attached to the project too. The idea seems similar in spirit to Santana or Slash’s first solo album, where they had various guest vocalists and took one (Myles Kennedy) and a permanent band (The Conspirators) on the road. After seeing a recent picture and hearing the exceptional playing on the great Robin Zander track one thing is for sure. Jake is back for real and ready to take on the world and reclaim his position as one of Metals best guitarists. All we can say is its better late than never.
Throw away your turntables and pick up a guitar. Ex-Ozzy guitarist recluse resurfaces to show the youngin, s how powerful and exciting a rock album can be!
