The Lizards new CD Against All Odds, which promises to be the bands best yet, began life in the group's private studio, aptly christened Electric Randyland, in mid-2005. Along with Rondinelli and DiMeo, The Lizard's bassist Randy Pratt and guitarist Patrick Klein painstakingly wrote and recorded 10 new songs, many of which are destined to become rock classics, as well as regulars in the band's live repertoire. Likewise, the arrangements incorporated into the music are intricate, compelling and downright rocking! - Even real horns and strings were used in the mix! "I think we're evolving," says Bobby Rondinelli, "going deeper into our roots, but also taking it to new places… I think the CD will surprise people." And surprise it will, as one of the most intriguing aspects of the new Lizards CD is the addition of a guest rock superstar!
The mystery guest star is none-other-than than Glenn Hughes!!! - The legendary bassist/vocalist from Deep Purple/Trapese/Black Sabbath, and a rock icon in his own right. Hughes, whom The Lizards toured extensively throughout Europe, Scandinavia and Russia in 2004, lends his dynamic vocals on four tracks on Against All Odds, as well as playing bass and singing on a cut for future release. The classic rocker, who recently sang lead vocals on Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi's new CD and is currently recording a new solo album, at the time of the Lizards recordings was quoted saying, "They were the best sessions I've ever done outside my own music!"
