SPEED X Joined By Former DOUBLEDRIVE Bassist

SPEED X — the new band featuring BLACK LABEL SOCIETY guitarist Nick Catanese, QUEENSRŸCHE axeman Mike Stone and DOUBLEDRIVE drummer Mike Froedge — has announced the addition of former DOUBLEDRIVE bassist Joshua Sattler to the group's ranks. According to the band, "[Josh] and Mike have been playing together for years and together they form an unstoppable rhythm section! So now Mike Stone will be playing mostly guitar, rather than bass, as he vocally abuses the audience!"

The group adds, "Stoney is on tour with the 'RŸCHE for the moment, but Nick, Mike F., and Josh are in Mike's studio in Atlanta NOW, working on more new songs for the album!!! This latest batch of songs is going to rock even MORE than the small samples you've already heard, kids! So watch your heads!"

A recent episode of "Talking Metal" features an interview hosts Mark Strigl and John Ostronomy conducted with Nick Catanese. Topics include SPEED X, Mike Stone, Zakk Wylde, Paul Stanley, Washburn Guitars, and the late musicians Dimebag Darrell, Michelle Meldrum, and Dave Williams.
