Before his untimely death in 2012, renowned American rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose started recording an ambitious passion project with bassist Ricky Phillips (Styx, Bad English) and drummer Eric Singer (Kiss, Alice Cooper). The idea used to be to record 10 songs with 10 different singers and call the album 10X10. Sadly, Montrose used to be unable to see the album through right through his lifetime. As an alternative, Phillips made it his mission to finish the songs by enlisting a small army of Ronnie’s musician friends to record the vocals and the guitar solos for each and every song, completing the album in contemporary years.
10×10 features inspired pairings, like Deep Purple singer Glenn Hughes with Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen (“Still Singin’ With The Band”) and singer Sammy Hagar with Toto guitarist Steve Lukather (“Color Blind”). Legendary blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa also showcases his guitar talents at the track “The Kingdom’s Come Undone” with Ricky Phillips on vocals. A couple of artists both sing and play, like Edgar Winter (“Love Is An Art”) and Tommy Shaw (“Strong Enough”).
