Rock and Roll Allstars LIVE in South America

Went to the launch/press conference for the Rock and Roll Allstars tour today.

Going to be an awesome tour. At the table today was Matt Sorum (The Cult, Guns and Roses, Velvet Revoler) who instigated the whole project, Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Glen Hughes (Deep Purple), Gilbey Clarke (Guns and Roses), Gene Simmons (KISS) and Duff McKagan (GnR, Velvet Revolver). The tour launches in April and heads through Central and South America. Not at the event today but appearing aon stage will be Billy Duffy (THE CULT!), Ed Roland (Collective Soul), Joe Elliot(Def Leppard) and Mike Inez (Alice in Chains).

For anyone who has had the joy of seeing Camp Freddy in L.A. or Vegas, this will be the same experience times 1000.

and interestingly, the first and only time Gene Simmons has toured outside of KISS.

Here's the most interesting thing: The #1 question that was asked over and over again by the press at this event: "Will their be a live album?"
