Former BADLANDS bassist Greg Chaisson filled in for Ronnie Mancuso at RED DRAGON CARTEL‘s March 4 concert in Tempe, Arizona. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.

Chaisson and RED DRAGON CARTEL leader Jake E. Lee (also formerly of OZZY OSBOURNE) were half of the short-lived BADLANDS, which also featured current KISS drummer Eric Singer and the late singer Ray Gillen (who also had a brief stint in BLACK SABBATH). After the first BADLANDS album, Singer was replaced by Jeff Martin. The group lasted from 1988 to 1993 and released two albums, “Badlands” (1989) and “Voodoo Highway” (1991) before Gillen left and was replaced by John West. Ray‘s death in 1993 effectively ended any hopes of a BADLANDS reunion. The album “Dusk”, consisting of BADLANDS demo recordings from 1992-1993, was released in 1998.

RED DRAGON CARTEL‘s self-titled debut album sold around 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 69 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on January 28 via Frontiers Records, the CD was recorded at Las Vegas’ The Hideout Recording Studio — owned and operated by Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, IN THIS MOMENT) — and was produced by R. Bernard Mann (a.k.a. Ronnie Mancuso) and Jake E. Lee, and executive-produced, mixed and mastered by Churko.

RED DRAGON CARTEL, which references the axeman’s Japanese roots, also features Darren James “D.J.” Smith of Canadian metallers WARMACHINE, on vocals, Ronnie Mancuso (BEGGARS & THIEVES) on bass and Jonas Fairley (BLACK BETTY) on drums.

JAKE E. LEE’S RED DRAGON CARTEL‘s setlist includes new material like the singles “Feeder” and “Deceived”, as well as major hits from Jake E. Lee‘s glorious past: “Bark At The Moon”, “The Ultimate Sin” and “Rock ‘N’ Roll Rebel” (all originally recorded by OZZY OSBOURNE), as well as “Shine On” and “High Wire” (BADLANDS).

Former KORN drummer David Silveria says that the band’s current musical output is “not funky and groovy” like the early material the California-based group wrote and recorded while he was playing with them.

Asked by fans on his Facebook page if he has heard the new KORN single “Never Never”, Silveria replied: “For all the fans asking, the answer is no, I have not heard a new KORN song. All I can say is I’m sure it’s not funky and groovy like the original KORN. I don’t even need to hear it to know that.”

Silveria in February pleaded guilty to a charge of allegedly driving under the influence. In exchange, prosecutors dropped the hit-and-run charge in connection with the March 2012 incident in which the 40-year-old musician — who played with KORN for 13 years — rear-ended another car on his way to breakfast in Huntington Beach, California.

Silveria was sentenced to three years of informal probation, a three-month first offender program, and he was ordeded to attend a M.A.D.D. victim impact panel.

Silveria last year joined forces with ANYONE members Riz Story and Miki Black in a brand new project called INFINIKA.

David left KORN in late 2006 in order to focus on family life along with running his steak house and sushi restaurant.

Current KORN drummer Ray Luzier has been a member of the band since 2007.

Luzier is known for his high-profile gigs with David Lee Roth, Jake E. Lee and ARMY OF ANYONE.

A great classic here. Ozzy as a werewolf, genius! Also, Jake E Lee on guitar. One of my fav Ozzy axemen.”
