Jimmy was In the studio with Cactus members when we started recording the new cd for the new millieum. The cactus members Carmine Appice,Jim McCarty and Tim Bogert wanted someone to put down some temporary vocals so there was a vocal to play to. Little did they all know that Jimmy’s killer vocals were going to end up on the new CD and on the stage of the SWEDISH rock festival.
