Acclaimed guitarist Jeff Kollman (COSMOSQUAD, GLENN HUGHES, BOMBASTIC MEATBATS, MOGG/WAY) will be teaming up with bassist/vocalist Marco Mendoza (THIN LIZZY, TED NUGENT, WHITESNAKE) and drummer Joel Taylor (ALLAN HOLDSWORTH, AL DI MEOLA) for an exclusive show at Alva’s Showroom in San Pedro, CA on October 7.
Kollman will support his latest release, PERVADELICS – ‘Songs For Pervs’, with a show at Howl At The Moon at Universal City Walk in Universal City, CA on November 16. Pervadelics features Kollman on guitar and lead vocals, along with co-guitarist Michael ‘Fish’ Herring, bassist Jesse Stern, and drummer Jono Brown.
Kollman’s long-running progressive metal/fusion triumvirate COSMOSQUAD is set to start tracking their fourth studio album in mid-November. The follow-up to 2007′s ‘Acid Test’ will feature co-founding member Shane Gaalaas (B’Z, GLENN HUGHES, MSG, DIESEL MACHINE) on drums and mark the debut of bassist extraordinaire Ric Fierabracci (PLANET X, FRANK GAMBALE, CHICK COREA). The album is slated for a spring 2012 release.
Last but not least, Kollman has been working on a tribute to Irish guitar legend GARY MOORE who passed away on February 6 of this year. Titled ‘Silence In The Corridor’ in reference to Moore’s classic 1982 solo album, ‘Corridors Of Power’, the track will be released as a digital single before the end of the year.
