Former KING DIAMOND Members To Tour With MARYANN COTTON
February 26, 2011
Three musicians who performed on KING DIAMOND's 1990 album, "The Eye" — guitarist Pete Blakk, bassist Hal Patino and drummer Snowy Shaw — have signed on as the touring backing band for 20-year-old Danish rock singer Maryann Cotton (born Jackie Patino).
Maryann Cotton's new single, "Shock Me", will be released at the end of this month, with a full-length album to follow in the summer. A tour is in process of being booked for the end of 2011.
In addition to Blakk, Patino and Shaw, "Shock Me" features a guest appearance by KING DIAMOND guitarist Andy La Rocque.
Maryann Cotton's career was launched in 2006 when he performed live on Danish TV as part of the "Scenen Er Din" program (Danish version of "Star Search").
