CD AND SPECIAL EDITION DOUBLE CD WITH BONUS TRACKS NOW SHIPPING

Greg Hampton (producer of the Tommy Bolin Whips and Roses CDs) and Warren Haynes (Gov’t Mule, Allman Brothers) have co-produced sessions with some of the world’s most famous and revered guitarists and singers for their Tommy Bolin tribute 2-CD set titled Tommy Bolin and Friends - Great Gypsy Soul. Fabrizio Grossi (Whips & Roses I & II, Glenn Hughes) was 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 were excited to add parts to original Tommy Bolin multitrack tapes that have never been made public.

Greg’s sessions with Steve Lukather were especially poignant, as the drummer on that original multitrack was the late Jeff Porcaro with whom Lukather played in Toto. Contributing musicians listed in the order in which the sessions were completed 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)
  • • Derek Trucks (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Derek Trucks Band, Allman Brothers)
  • • Sonny Landreth (Solo, John Hiatt)
  • • Big Sugar
