Former Rainbow bassist Greg Smith has issued the following update: "Looks like I'll be playing bass for Uncle Ted (Nugent) this summer. I was kinda looking forward to having a summer at home with the family: BBQ's, canoeing, camping, recording in the barn and just enjoying the Smith "farm" but when Ted calls, you answer!! Rehearsals start the end of May, and tour starts in June. Go to Tednugent.com for the tour dates. "Wild" Mick Brown (Dokken) is playing drums and it's gonna be a fierce band and lots of fun. I'll try to stay out of jail! I'll also have recording capabilities out on the road so if anyone is in need of bass tracks, e-mail me!"
