Celebrity rock super group SCRAP METAL announced John Corabi former lead singer of MOTLEY CRUE, THE SCREAM and UNION will join them as special guest star performing at the upcoming SCRAP METAL summer rock concert event at the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den in Uncasville, CT on Friday, August 5, 2011.
SCRAP METAL, the celebrity rock super group whose members have sold over 50 million records worldwide, was co-founded by Nashville rockers Gunnar Nelson (Nelson /"Love and Affection") and Mark Slaughter (Slaughter / "Fly to the Angels"). The August 5th summer rock event will star twin lead front men Matthew & Gunnar Nelson (NELSON / "After the Rain"); Joe Lynn Turner former lead singer of DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW; and Janet Gardner former lead singer of the all-girl rock band (VIXEN / "Cryin", "Edge of a Broken Heart").
"The entire cast of Scrap Metal looks forward to playing these gigs at the Mohegan Sun all year... and they get better and better every time," enthuses Gunnar Nelson. "We're going to bring our A-game with every intention of blowing the roof off the place. Every Scrap show at the Mohegan isn't just a 'show'... it's a rock festival on one stage. Be there or be square!"
"If it looks like we're having fun up there," adds Matthew Nelson, "YOU'RE RIGHT!"
Since the rock'n'roll rat pack's motto is you can never have too many guitars, the summer concert event will feature double lead guitars with both guitar virtuosos Howie Simon (ALCATRAZ) and Neil Zaza sharing double-duty on-stage. Rounding out the Scrap Metal musical guest stars will be drummer Bobby Rock (NELSON / VINNIE VINCENT INVASION); and Todd Rogers on keyboard.
SCRAP METAL live concert events feature over 90 minutes of top rock hits performed by the original band's lead singers. Previous SCRAP METAL rock'n'roll rat pack members include Mark Slaughter (SLAUGHTER); Eric Martin (MR. BIG); Jimi Jamison; Jani Lane (formerly WARRANT); John Payne (ASIA); Kelly Keagy (NIGHT RANGER); C.J. Snare (FIREHOUSE); Steve Plunkett (AUTOGRAPH); Jeff Scott Soto (formerly JOURNEY); and Kip Winger (WINGER).
