Derek's post MoonBabies Tour Update...

Hello Friends,

I want to thank everyone for coming out to the shows on the last run.
Also thanks to Ric Fierabracci for doing a fantastic job on bass.

We recorded the last five shows of the tour, as we intend to release a
new live CD in 2003.

Happy Holidays to everyone, and we look forward to seeing you next year

Derek's update...

Hello Friends,

Planet X is ready to hit the road next week, bassist Ric Fierabracci is sounding great with the band- this should be fun. The live set will feature most of the music from our new CD "MoonBabies", along with all the old hits! ... and yes there will be plenty of pompous, self indulgent solo spots from each member!

I will also be playing some holiday shows with Billy Idol:

Dec 26 - 4th and B - San Diego, CA
Dec 27 - Mandalay Bay - Las Vegas, NV
Dec 31 - House of Blues - Hollywood, CA

I have a new solo (no title yet) CD that is 98% complete, I will have it ready for Simon Phillips to mix in January 2003. Some of the song titles are:

The Sons of Anu (feat: Yngwie Malmsteen & Al Dimeola)
Stony Days (feat: Steve Lukather)
Fear of Flying (feat: Zakk Wylde & Yngwie Malmsteen)
Gypsy Moth (Acoustic Duet w/ Al DiMeola)
