Former DIO Members TRACY G, VINNY APPICE Collaborating On New Project

Former DIO members Tracy G (guitar) and Vinny Appice (ex-BLACK SABBATH) are currently working on Vinny's new project, according to a posting on Tracy's web site. "We are getting together and writing songs," Tracy says. "It's at a very early stage."

In other news, Tracy's DRIVEN project, also featuring drummer Ray Luzier (DAVID LEE ROTH), are completing work on their third CD. The 12-song effort was recorded at Tracy's G Factory studios and is due later in the year. Tracy has also written 10 of the 12 instrumental songs for his new solo CD, "The Tracy G Group Vol. 2". Joining Tracy during the recording sessions will be Luzier, ex-GREAT WHITE drummer Audie Desbrow and bassist Jeremy James Masana. A fall release is expected.

Also on the Tracy G-related front, the guitarist is currently working on THE NOCTURNAL GARDEN CD, featuring one hour of "all acoustic, all instrumental, all improv" music (no bass, no drums) created by Tracy and fellow axeman Gratz.
