It features guest appearances by The Black Crowes‘ Chris Robinson, Stone Temple Pilots Robert DeLeo, Cheap Trick‘s Robin ZanderNew York Dolls David Johansen and more. 

“We had so many songs and with everything going on with The Vampires, Aerosmith, COVID, not touring, and touring, this music kept riding along for me,” Joe shares. “I tend to think in terms of albums. The first one had a vibe, and MKII is a little more rocked out. I almost prefer it.”

He added, “It’s one of those records I can play from front-to-back live.”
