Legendary guitarist George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB, SOULS OF WE) will make a guest appearance on "Break Away", the new single from the self-proclaimed "'80s metal pioneer" Willie Basse. The track will appear on the follow-up to Basse's "The Money Grind" album, which is being recorded by Willie and engineer Andy Johns and is expected to surface in late 2010 through Basse's own New Empire Media, Inc.

"Working with George Lynch again is amazing and we're enjoying lots of creative fun! We can actually do anything and go anywhere without limits," commented Willie Basse. "His contribution to my project, along with unmatched professional musicianship enlightens me, and inspires me to new heights."

"Ok. First you have Andy Johns. Hello, Andy Johns?! He's done a few records... LED ZEPPELIN, ROLLING STONES," added George Lynch. "Then you've got Willie, who I played with back in the '80s, so we've got some history.

"Willie is so passionate about the music that he lives and breathes.

"Working on these tracks is liking going back in time, in a good way! It's very reminiscent of PRIEST and other hard rock bands of that era. And everything starts out analog. You just can't beat tape. I felt like I was back in 1987 recording a classic DOKKEN record!"

Basse is best known for his role as bassist/frontman for the L.A.-based metalheads BLACK SHEEP, who were mainstays on the Los Angeles Sunset Strip during the '80s metal explosion. The band has boasted members that include Slash, Paul Gilbert, James Kottak and Randy Castillo.
