MORE HEEP... AND RELATED!
- The Rage! The supergroup
collaboration of Jimmy Barnes (vocals - Cold Chisel, Jimmy Barnes solo),
Bob Daisley (bass - Ozzy, Rainbow, Uriah Heep, Yngwie Malmsteen, Gary
Moore, etc.), Steve Morse (guitar - Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs), Lee Kerslake
(drums - Ozzy, Uriah Heep) and Don Airey (keyboards - Ozzy, Sabbath, Rainbow,
Whitesnake, Gary Moore, etc.) is called The Rage. They recently recorded
11 tracks in Florida for their forthcoming CD, titled "Relentless".
The project started as a dream of Bob Daisley nearly 20 years ago. Having
co-written and played on the landmark Ozzy Osbourne albums "Diary
Of A Madman" and "Blizzard of Ozz", selling in excess of
30 million albums worldwide, Bob had always wanted to give some of the
more anthemic numbers that he had co-written a different perspective.
The result is a hard rock project based around those two albums, plus
the infusion of a number of new tracks in the same mould. Producer Darren
Schneider (Deep Purple, Matchbox 20, Creed) is currently in Australia
putting the finishing touches to the album mix, under the guidance of
Jimmy Barnes and Bob Daisley, with Jimmy having just a few vocal harmonies
and parts to add. The project has attracted amazing attention, with UNICEF
requesting to use one of the new tracks, "In The Name of God",
as part of a fundraising event to raise awareness and monies for the kids
of Iraq. The album's release date is planned for February 2004, but there
may be a single release prior to Christmas. Source:
to Kerrie Sutton). It is also important to add that the MelodicRock.com's
info previously included here regarding The Meek (now named The Rage)
was an uncredited lift from the Jimmy Barnes message board.
