THE LIZARDS, the hard rock band featuring Bobby Rondinelli (BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH) and Mike DiMeo (RIOT), have just completed what can only be described as a "super session" with a rock and roll legend for the band's upcoming CD. Although it's "hush hush" in THE LIZARDS camp as far as who this rock guest star is (which will be disclosed at a future date), he was quoted as saying, "They were the best sessions I've ever done outside my own music!"
In other THE LIZARDS news, the group are also putting the finishing touches on an album of cover tunes as well as a new DVD of live performances culled from their recent tour of Europe. All three releases are expected to surface in early 2006.
