Steel Mountain Crossing reform with former W.A.S.P. bassist Johnny Rod now in the line-up
About seven months after disbanding, Steel Mountain Crossing are back together with new bassist Johnny Rod (ex-W.A.S.P., King Kobra) in the line-up. Rod joins lead vocalist Mark Huff (ex-Quiet Riot), guitarist Dennis DiNunzio (Tiger Claws, Wett Cherry) and drummer Kevin Grisso in the band.
Dragon City Demo‘s press release indicates (with slight edits): “Former members of Quiet Riot and W.A.S.P. have joined forces in Steel Mountain Crossing. The new band consists of lead vocalist Mark Huff, guitarist Dennis DiNunzio, bassist Johnny Rod and drummer Kevin Grisso.
DiNunzio revealed the new band last week in a private message writing: “We welcome Johnny Rod to Steel Mountain Crossing. We look forward to playing cover songs from W.A.S.P. and Quiet Riot and a few others until we finish writing the third Steel Mountain Crossing album. For too many reasons to list, a few old friends and bandmates have decided to unite and form something unique for you (and us)!
Our aim is to bring you the very best of both worlds! So if you’re a fan of the music of one or both the bands, W.A.S.P. or Quiet Riot, you win!”
