Zakk Wylde, Bumblefoot, George Lynch + More Star on ‘Disney Super Guitar’ Album
One year ago, Metal Disney arrived with heavy versions of classic Disney songs featuring some notables from the metal community. Now, a new release aimed at headbangers features guitarists like Zakk Wylde, Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal, George Lynch and a slew of others.
Wylde opens the album with his version of the Beauty and the Beast title theme, a cunning choice given his grisly resemblance to the hairy, musclebound creature featured in the movie. "Hellfire" from The Hunchback of Notre Dame is where Lynch makes his mark, while Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big), Orianthi, Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob), Richie Kotzen (The Winery Dogs) and still more take on songs from The Little Mermaid, Lion King, Aladdin and others.
The rest of the cast is rounded out by the house band made up of guitarist John Bruno (Obsession), drummer B.J. Zampa (House of Lords, ex-Obsession, occasional Dokken touring member), bassist Chris Vescera, and keyboardist Michael Vescera (Obsession, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen), all of whom headed up Metal Disney, save for Chris Vescera.
