Slash (ex-GUNS N' ROSES), Wes Borland (ex-LIMP BIZKIT), Dave Navarro (JANES'S ADDICTION, ex-RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Kenny Olsen (KID ROCK), Vernon Reid (LIVING COLOUR), Sen Dog (CYPRESS HILL), and Hugo Ferreira (TANTRIC) are among the artists confirmed to appear on the planned sequel to JIMI HENDRIX's Band Of Gypsys, widely perceived as one of the most essential live recordings of all time.
Legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer will team up with remaining BAND OF GYPSYS members Buddy Miles (bass) and Billy Cox (drums) as well an assembly of today's guitar and vocal greats to pay tribute to B.O.G.'s incredible legacy by recording some of the classic songs that the original band performed as well adding new material that maintains the integrity, feel and emotion of the original tracks.
In addition to the audio recordings, plans for a DVD of the sessions, with interviews, behind-the-scenes exclusives and additional footage are in the works. There are also going to be some special all-star live performances, and a tour featuring Buddy, Billy and various other players to help celebrate this masterful occasion and monumental recording.
