Brian Tichy, guitarist and drummer-extraordinaire, producer, and mastermind behind the California Music Festival, took a moment to chat with CALIFORNIA ROCK NEWS about his recent events as well as other exciting things he has in the works.

Following January’s California Music Festival (where all 3 musicians participated throughout) and the release of the Randy Rhoads Remembered Vol. 1 CD, Tichy made a historic visit to Cuba with The Dead Daisies.

Most recently, he recorded drums for Geoff Tate’s Operation:Mindcrime in Washington and took a trip to Las Vegas to accept an award, be a rock camp counselor and play drums with fellow current and former Whitesnake band mates as power-trio.

Tichy participated in a “Metal Masters” version of Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp with a group of fellow highly-touted rockers, played drums in Steamroller with Whitesnake bass player Michael Devin on bass/vocals and current Raiding The Rock Vault guitarist Doug Aldrich on guitar and he was also honored at the Rock Godz Awards with various alums from his Bonzo Bash, The Ox and The Loon and Randy a Rhoads Remembered events.  

Although Tichy has already experienced and accomplished enough for an entire year, his most recent adventure took place at the Whisky a Go Go, where he teamed on guitar with drummer Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction) and bassist/ vocalist Michael Devin (Whitesnake) as The Perkins Devin Tichy Experience to jam some classic rock tunes via the power-trio format at The Whisky A Go Go on April 4 (gallery and set list below).
