Rockstar is the name of a new band formed by members of some of “rockstars”. This  collective of rockers, who count stints with Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, the Scorpions and Guns N’ Roses on their resumes, will begin their upcoming tour of Russia.

The group is led by frontman Tim “Ripper” Owens, who first came to fame with Judas Priest, but has since played with Iced Earth, Dio Disciples and Yngwie Malmsteen. On guitar is onetime Alice Cooper and Slash‘s Snakepit axeman Keri Kelli.

The drummer for this outfit will be Scorpions and Kingdom Come skinbeater James Kottak. On bass is Rudy Sarzo, who is best known for his stints with Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot, though he’s also played with Dio and Whitesnake. And finally, on keyboards is onetime Guns N’ Roses collaborator Teddy “Zig Zag” Andreadis.

In an interview, Owens says: “We all have such diverse backgrounds in so many different bands that we just want to get there and play Whitesnake and Alice Cooper and Dio and Priest and Guns N’ Roses. So I think this project is just to go play for the fans with this special show with all these songs and all these bands.”

Rockstar is expected to hit the road to play classic songs from their respective pasts during a week-long tour of Russia. The trek begins May 19 in Krasnodar, with stops in Rostov, Voronej, Penza and Saratov, before the tour ends May 28 in Moscow. We hope they continue with more tours around the world.

ROCKSTAR, otra súper banda.Rockstar es la nueva banda formada por miembros de Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions etc. Y si han elegido este nombre, precisamente es por la vida que han llevado a lo largo de estos años.

El grupo está dirigido por Tim Ripper Owens quién llegó a la fama de la mano de Judas Priest habiendo pasado por grupos como Iced Earth e Yngwie Malsmteen entre otros. Keri Kelli se hará responsable de la guitarra después de tocar con Alice Cooper y Slash. Mientras que la batería correrá a cargo de James Kottak, batería de Scorpions y Kingdom Come. Y se completa el combo con Rudy Sarzo que a parte de Ozzy Osbourne ha estádo con Quiet Riot. Mientras que el teclado irá a cargo de Teddy Zigzag Andreadis, colaborador de Guns N Roses.

En una reciente entrevista, Owens dice “ Todos tenemos orígenes tan diversos de bandas tan diferentes que solo queremos tocar canciones de Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, Dio y Guns And Roses. Así que este proyecto es para los fans que aman estas bandas y estas canciones.

Rockstar llegará a la carretera para tocar canciones de su pasado a partir del 19 de mayo en una gira por Rusia y que terminará el 28 de mayo en Moscú. Esperemos que se animen y extiendan las fechas para el resto del continente.

ROCKSTAR, otra súper banda.
