Judas Priest's Ian Hill Guests With Original Singer
Atkins' album will include re-recorded versions of tracks from throughout his 40-year career. It's as-yet-untitled, but former Maiden guitarist Stratton, Ozzy guitarist Torme and ex Tygers Of Pan Tang singer Jess Cox will appear - along with Priest bassist Hill who appears on two songs.
The idea for the album came about after his involvement in 2013's Atkins May Project. Atkins tells Power Of Metal: "It came about after Paul May and myself were asked to record a 'best of' album by our record company and so we recorded the Atkins May Project - Anthology. It then got me thinking about recording my own solo 'best of' album but set about re-recording all of my favorite songs from the last four decades and using guest players." Read more here.
