Odds On Records & Studios in Las Vegas recently hosted noted ’80s heavy metal band Keel’s Right to Rock celebrity vocal session. Exactly 25 years from when the original album, produced by KISS’ Gene Simmons, was released, Frontiers Records will release The Right To Rock—25th Anniversary Reunion Edition in January 2010.

The entire band, including Ron Keel (guitar and keyboard), Marc Ferrari (guitar), Bryan Jay (guitar), Geno Arce (bass) and Dwain Miller (drums) gathered at Odds On Records & Studios with a special group of celebrity artists to record the chorus gang vocals for the track. Guest vocalists included Jaime St. James (Black 'n Blue, Warrant), Paul Shortino (Rough Cutt, Quiet Riot), Graham Russell (Air Supply), Lez Warner (The Cult) and Ron Mancuso (Beggars & Thieves) to name a few.

“We are honored to have hosted this historic recording session at Odds On,” says Bobby Ferrari, head of audio production at Odds On. “We take pride in providing our clients with the very best gear for their projects while also offering an environment that is conducive to creativity. We are thrilled that we were able to do so with such a well-known group of recording artists.”
