    Default White Lion

    I stumbled onto some concert dates on ticketmaster. Does anyone know anything about a white lion reunion. Is it with vito bratta on guitar or someone else?

    Sadly (or not, take your pick) this is not a White Lion "Reunion", it's really billed as "Mike Tramp's White Lion", containing no original members, just some guys to go about playing the catalogue, first in Europe, then in the states.

    You can find out more at melodicrock.com , as the guy who runs it appears to have a good friendship with Tramp.

    Yeah It's kind of like what Roth does, however Mike Tramp constantly tours with his own music. This is a side project. Unfortunately he is not coming to Florida as of yet. He is a great singer...

    Vito kind of retired from music, this is so unfortunate he was absolutely amazing!!! One of my favorite guitar players. I HEARD, strictly rumor on a web site that he was planning a comeback but hurt his hand to the point of being paralyzed. I don't know take it with a grain of salt. I hope not for Vito's sake, that is tragic.

    Bratta is so far out of the spotlight there is very little reliable info on him. Mike Tramp in an interview said he would work with Vito again, there were no differences there. It was Vito's decision to drop out of music entirely.


    I saw White Lion in Baltimore, MD at a legendary place called Hammerjacks that is no more...very shortly before they broke up. They sounded great live. I actually met Rick Derringer there, nice guy was happy someone recognized him :-)

    Hey guys,
    The new dates for the USA are Tramp's White Lion - all WL tunes played how they should be...

    Mike solo material shows are billed as just that.

    No chance of an official WL re-union...can't see it ever happening

    A friend of mine just did an interview with Mike Tramp. He said that Vito is one of the most depressed people he's ever met. He hasn't done an injury, he just can't be bothered playing guitar anymore. Apparenlty when Tramp tried to get WL back together in 2003 Vito just said "Its not the right time".

    I saw White Lion when they opened for Ozzy (with Zakk, oh yes!). They had a very good sound and Vito was as tastefully close to EVH as they get. "Wait", their big cheezy hit had a kickin gtr solo. My fave was "All Ya Need Is Rock N Roll".

    I met DLR and James Lomenzo after the Portland show in the summer of '03 and asked James about Vito...kinda said he hadn't talked to him for a few years and he is really far away from music now, like has already been stated.

    So I went to the san diego show 2/20/05. Tramp has assembled some decent musicians. They are from all over the world, keyboard from germany, bass player from denmark, guitar player from australia, drummer from us.

    The guitar player is extremely talented. I got a chance to talk to him after the show and he was playing in a led zep tribute band in australia when mike tramp called him up. He used framus (german company) amps and had a very nice tone. He looks kind of like a young ted nugent.

    If you guys liked white lion, go see them, it was worth the $15 per ticket. There couldn't have been more than 100 people there but everyone was having a good time. They played from midnite to about 2 am.

    I guess this is the "Official White Lion Thread" by default...
