The Robot Lords of Tokyo are Rick Ritzler (Drums & Backing Vocals and Paul Jones (Vocals). Tracy G plays lead guitar on tracks 4 and 5. Also on the CD are Beau Vanbibber, Joe Viers, Chris Poland, Steve Theado, Terry Adams, Wayne Findlay, Steve Pollick, Nate Hollman, and Phil Clark.
A project that represents the culmination of a 15-year musical partnership between Rick Ritzler and Paul Jones.
After several CDs and hundreds of gigs in a previous band covering much musical territory, the two returned to their roots, abandoned the traditional “band” concept, and the ROBOT LORDS OF TOKYO were born.
They have returned to deliver their third album of ten-ton riffage and whiskey-fueled vocals. Entitled Virtue & Vice, the record features numerous guest six-stringers, including Chris Poland (Megadeth), Tracy G (Dio), Wayne Findlay (Michael Schenker Group) and Steve Theado (American Dog). Production duties were once again handled by Joe Viers (Bobaflex, No Sky Today), with mastering by Rickard Bengsston (Opeth, Arch Enemy).
