Holdsworth guested on this, Derek Sherinian's last album Mythology, last year but this isn't one of the tracks he's on... This tune is called "Trojan Horse" and actually the guitar player featured here is also the drummer Brian Tichy.

Any Holdsworth fan would know there's no Allan on this track...

Allan plays on two tracks on Mythology, one with ex-Mahavishnu Orchestra violinist Jerry Goodman also guesting called "One Way or the Other", the other song Allan performs on, "Day of the Dead", where he plays over Zakk Wylde's rhythm guitar, is indeed pretty much heavy metal...

It's a great album, Zakk and Allan playing together is pretty nutz. Can't wait to hear the new Planet X since Allan's playing on it.
