Uli Jon Roth, Doug Aldrich And Michael Angelo Batio To Headline ‘Extreme Cream’
January 13, 2014
On January 24th at Malone’s in Santa Ana, California, an unprecedented collection of musicians will gather together for ‘Extreme Cream: An All Star Dedication to the Original Supergroup’.
What started out as an homage exclusively to the works of Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton has evolved into an event celebrating Cream, as well as several true giants in the world of rock and metal.
Former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth will celebrate Eric Clapton’s most critically acclaimed work with a full set of Cream classics. Joining Uli will be Don Dokken, Kofi Baker and Elliott Dean Rubinson.
Also taking part in ‘Extreme Cream’ is current Whitesnake and former Dio guitarist Doug Aldrich, along with Ace Frehley drummer Matt Starr and Whitesnake bassist Michael Devin. Virtuoso guitar player and producer Roy Z. Former Nitro guitarist Michael Angelo Batio will take a double necked trip through the ‘History of Rock Guitar’ — insider buzz on this performance has been nothing short of phenomenal. Craig Goldy, Vinny Appice and Mark Boals will join forces, combining elements of both Dio Disciples and Last In Line for a rare performance celebrating the music of Black Sabbath, Dio and Rainbow.
Closing the show will be a ‘one night only’ all-star performance honoring the ultimate guitar God — the one and only Jimi Hendrix.
‘Extreme Cream’ is a once in a lifetime event and a historical recreation of rock and roll’s six decades, and promises to be one of NAMM 2014’s defining moments.
