Greg Hampton (producer of the Tommy Bolin Whips and Roses CDs) and Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, Allman Brothers) are currently co-producing sessions with some of the world's most famous and revered guitarists and singers for their upcoming Tommy Bolin Tribute CD (as yet unnamed). Fabrizio Grossi (Whips & Roses I & II, Glenn Hughes) is also on board as Associate Producer/Mix Engineer. It's been inspiring to learn that all of these legendary guitarists are all fans of Tommy, and are excited about adding parts to original Tommy Bolin multitrack tapes that have never been made public.
Greg’s recent sessions with Steve Lukather which were especially poignant, as the drummer on that original multitrack was the late Jeff Porcaro with whom Lukather played in Toto. Completed sessions include:
- Steve Lukather (Toto, solo)
- Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, Allman Brothers)
- Brad Whitford (Aerosmith)
- Nels Cline (Wilco, solo)
- Glenn Hughes (Trapeze, Deep Purple, solo)
- Oz Noy (Roger Glover, Nile Rodgers, solo)
- John Scofield (Billy Cobham, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, solo)
- Prairie Prince (The Tubes, drums on Savannah Woman and Wild Dogs)
- Peter Frampton (Humble Pie, solo)
- Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge)
- Joe Bonamassa (Black Country Communion, solo)
- Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs, solo)
Also in negotiation or committed to the project are Billy Gibbons, Ben Harper, Tom Morello, Derek Trucks and John Scofield.
