HOTEL DIABLO Vocalist Collaborates With GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist

GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal makes a guest appearance on "LIVE4EVR", a new solo track from HOTEL DIABLO vocalist Rick Stitch. The song, which will be made available on November 27 via iTunes, Amazon and, will appear on Stitch's forthcoming solo album.

A sample of "LIVE4EVR" can be heard in the YouTube clip below.

"This is the first tune from my album which will drop next year and it's exciting to do something new and be able to bring some old and new friends on board," says Stitch. "I have been a big fan of Bumblefoot's for some time now and his playing seemed like a natural fit for this track. He's really pro and an all-around great guy so it was a great experience having him add his signature style solos to the track. I'm looking forward to more tracks featuring him as well as other great players."

As previously reported, HOTEL DIABLO — the new band featuring guitarist Alex Grossi (QUIET RIOT), Stitch, bassist Mike Duda and drummer Mike Dupke (both of W.A.S.P.) — has tapped nine-time Emmy Award-winning and MTV Video Music Award-nominated director Fabio Jafet (PITBULL, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS, CHILDREN OF BODOM) to direct the video for the song "Psycho, California". Shooting will take place in December in Los Angeles.

HOTEL DIABLO's "The Return To Psycho, California" was released in September via Scarlet Records. The CD was produced by Gilby Clarke (GUNS N' ROSES, ROCKSTAR SUPERNOVA), with additional production by Matt Starr (ACE FREHLEY, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES). "The Return To Psycho, California" is also available digitally via iTunes, Amazon and other online music retailers.
