Over the years we’ve had a few ‘Supergroups’ form with ex or current members of seminal bands within the rock and metal world that end up creating quite incredible records thanks to unexpected collaborations. Audioslave, Prophets of Rage, Them Crooked Vultures, and Velvet Revolver are great examples.

Now, ex-members from Dio, AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne and Whitesnake have decided to revive more of a classic rock era style of playing and formed a new group, ‘Dream Child’.

With Craig Goldy on guitar (Dio), Rudy Sarzo on bass (Ozzy/Whitesnake) and Simon Wright on drums (AC/DC), it looks set to be a very interesting venture, and the first single has classic hard rock written all over it.

I had been listening to my favorite bands a lot recently, Deep Purple and Rainbow's “Rising" album
- Craig Goldy

"I had been listening to my favorite bands a lot recently, Deep Purple and Rainbow's “Rising" album, among others in that style and had noticed that many people who also love those bands often have the very same comments as one another: "They don't make music like that anymore!"
There are some impressive old-school vocals from Diego Valdez (Helker) and the new record is due out 14th September and should be something pretty special.

Dream Child are: Craig Goldy: Guitars (ex-Dio, Giuffria) Wayne Findlay: Guitars and Keyboards (MSG) Simon Wright: Drums (ex-AC/DC, Dio, Operation: Mindcrime) Rudy Sarzo: Bass (ex-Quiet Riot, Ozzy, Whitesnake) Diego Valdez: Vocals (Helker)
