Sons of Apollo
« on: October 25, 2017, 10:10:34 PM »
This new, shall we say, super group has now released their debut album. Featuring former Dream Theatre members Mike Portnoy on drums, and Derek Sherinian on keyboards joined by Billy Sheehan on bass, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal on guitar and Jeff Scott Soto on vocals. What's everybody think of these guys so far.

First song released is Lost in Oblivion

I like it, pretty fast paced cool tune. I like the bass and guitar double lead and some cool synths from Derek

Some tour dates posted for these guys albeit not many, but I'm sure there will many more dates to follow.

Got to see Billy when he toured with David Lee Roth with Vai on guitar, kick ass band. Here is some footage of Bumblefoot Thal playing solo doing Maiden, GNR and Beatles covers. This dude is pretty good and can sing.

Very strong debut album, like the majority of this very much, love the jam parts and solo's would definitely want to catch these guys live.
