thats cool but Joe Lynn Turner is in Big Noize too, a smiler project but with Phil Soussan (Bass) Carlos Cavazo (Guitar) and Vinny Appice (Drums). they do songs from there previous bands like Quiet Riot Ozzy Rainbow Deep Purple Dio etc why are so many of these bands? and why is Joe Lynn Turner in both of them?

Goldy was also great with Rough Cutt ... Jake's replacement in the band.
Word is Dio was pretty much the rising force for Rough Cutt so I wouldn't find it odd if the two would cross paths again.
Had the pleasure to see that concert - Rough Cutt opening for Dio when Viv was guitarist. Kicked ass, it did!! :lol: And, I think that show ranks 3rd as being one of the loudest I've ever witnessed.
