Jake E. Lee Jams Led Zeppelin With S.U.N. In Las Vegas
November 17, 2012
On November 16th S.U.N. performed live at Las Vegas’ Vamp’d and were joined onstage by Jake E. Lee for a rendition of the Led Zeppelin’s classic “Rock And Roll”.
Prior to the performance Tales From The Stage author Michael Toney interviewed S.U.N. guitarist Brian Tichy. During the interview Tichy gushed about Lee by stating, “I got schooled by Jake E. Lee. He just showed me the exact right way to play the intro riff and the outro solos of “Bark At The Moon”. Totally schooled.”
Something Unto Nothing, better known as S.U.N., consists of vocalist Sass Jordan, guitarist Brian Tichy (best known for his work as Whitesnake drummer), bassist Michael Devin and drummer Tommy Stewart. The band’s debut album will be released on November 20th through Robo Records (a division of Waterfront Entertainment Group). A video for the track “Nomad” was released in March followed by S.U.N.’s first single, “I’m The One”, in October — “Nomad” is also being offered as a free download at www.somethinguntonothing.com.
Former Ozzy Osbourne and Badlands guitarist Jake E Lee is currently working on his solo album in Las Vegas’ Hideout Studios, a private recording studio run by Canadian-bred producer Kevin Churko. Lee’s new release will feature a combination of legendary rock artists and some of the biggest names of new metal including Sass Jordan.
In late October Jordan stated, “Just back from Vegas and singing on Jake E. Lee’s new record. The song is called “Redeem Me”, and it kicks ass. There are a lot of amazing singers on his new CD, including Robin Zander from Cheap Trick and Maria Brink from In This Moment… It’s gonna be killer! Jake was talking about loving Mick Ronson… the fact that I got to hang out with someone who gives Mick Ronson the respect he deserves was pretty cool.”
On June 29th Toney released Tales From The Stage, a 238 page nonfiction book consisting of in-depth interviews with music professionals that helped shape the hard rock and heavy metal movement including Bruce Kulick (KISS, Grand Funk Railroad), Herman Rarebell (Scorpions), Tim “Ripper” Owens (Judas Priest, Dio Disciples), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns), Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot, King Kobra), Chris Holmes (W.A.S.P.), Oz Fox (Stryper), and many more. The book can be purchased at talesfromthestage.com.
