Other artists participating include Kip Winger, Great White‘s Jack Russell, Mr. Big‘s Eric Martin, former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Jake E. Lee, Dokken‘s George Lynch, Zebra‘s Randy Jackson, Slaughter‘s Mark Slaughter, Testament‘s Alex Skolnick, and Dream Theater members James LaBrie and John Petrucci. Additionally, the album features late Warrant vocalist Jani Lane on two tracks.
