I'm not really into Billy's music but I like this new jazzy version of "Rebel Yell" with Jeremy:

That's a great touring band that Billy got together:
Jeremy Colson: drums
Derek Sherinian (Planet X, ex-Dream Theater, ex-Kiss,...): keys (but he's not in this video).
Steve Stevens: guitar
Billy Morrison: guitar
Stephen McGrath: bass

I might see them in Holland this year because they'll play on the nice Bospop Festival.

Jeremy with a shirt and a tie? And playing kind of jazzy? Whoa! Very nice, though! :)

And this proves that he's one of the finest, most versatile drummers that there are on the planet.

I really enjoyed this version of the song, it's different but very creative. Steve Stevens too did some very nice soloing on it.

Thanks for posting! :)

That was cool! Thanx for posting. Jeremy seems to be a perfect match for Billy Idol's band (even when playing reserved and in a shirt and tie).
