Mark Egan and John Lee To Participate on Jimi Hendrix Tribute Album
Guitarist and vocalist Bob Wolfman have announced a new album that will be a Jimi Hendrix tribute, and the lineup is bonkers. Wolfman lined up guitarists Mike Stern, Robben Ford, and Sonny Landreth to help channel the guitar god as well as drummer Kenwood Dennard and keyboardist Bruce Mattson.
On bass will be the great Mark Egan and John Lee, who is known for his work with Larry Coryell, Dizzie Gillespie, and McCoy Tyner. The album is currently raising funds on Kickstarter.
“Millions of people around the world are undoubtedly missing Jimi and his music, and are also wondering, ‘What would Jimi Hendrix sound like if he were alive today?’ Well, all the players on this project have been asking this question for many years now, and thus came the inspiration for this CD project,” the group shared on Kickstarter. “BUT, just imagine a completely amazing album with ‘MONSTER,’ top name, world class artists coming together to create an unforgettable musical experience in the style and spirit of Jimi Hendrix. Bob Wolfman is in the unique position to bring all these amazing artists together in collaboration to record on this immensely exciting album.”
Backers of the project will be rewarded with packages ranging from a digital download of the album up to a signed guitar. More details on the project can be found on the Kickstarter Campaign page.
