Guitarist Roy Z (TRIBE OF GYPSIES, DRIVER, HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON) has cancelled his appearance, billed as ROY Z & FRIENDS, this Friday, June 15 at Petie’s Place in Tarzana, CA.
Explains Z: “I was really looking forward to getting together with some of my best friends and jam out this weekend but I am having to undergo a surgical procedure that same day which, unfortunately, cannot be postponed. And even though it’s nothing major I’m gonna have to take it easy for a couple of days before I can go full tilt again. Kavan are taking over our slot so the show is still going on as planned. Go check it out!”
In other Z related news, the new DRIVER album, “Countdown”, is now available in the U.S. via the band’s own RockZilla label. Chiefly recorded and mixed at Z’s California-based studio, Rob Rock and Roy Z once again joined forces with drummer Reynold ‘Butch’ Carlson (JAG PANZER, TRIBE AFTER TRIBE), bassist Aaron Samson (ODIN, LYNCH MOB) and keyboardist Ed Roth (GLENN HUGHES, RONNIE MONTROSE), with additional contributions coming from bassists Ray Burke (LIFE AFTER DEATH, Bruce Dickinson) and Daniel Cordova (THE SACRIFICED, SHADES OF CRIMSON), as well as veteran vocalist Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen, ROYAL HUNT). Mastering duties were again handled by Maor Appelbaum (HALFORD, SEPULTURA, Yngwie Malmsteen).
