Ross The Boss was officially inducted into The Hall of Heavy Metal History on Tuesday January 18, 2017 during a ceremony held at the Anaheim Expo Hall as part of the NAMM festivities.
He told the story of how Ronnie James Dio introduced him to Joey DeMaio and essentially started Manowar, the band that would eventually bring him to this special place in his career.
“Ross TheBoss” Friedman, on lead guitar and co-founder of MANOWAR, launches “The Discipline of Steel” 2017 world tour with Mike LePond on bass (Symphony X); Kenny “Rhino” Earl on drums (ex-MANOWAR); and Marc Lopes on vocals (Let Us Prey).
The tour begins in Mexico and Central America where the RTB Band will headline 2 metal festivals, performing a classic MANOWAR set. Twenty-five dates in Europe are scheduled in March and April, including an iconic tour of England, where years ago, Ross Friedman began the metal onslaught. The earth will rumble and the momentum will continue through the summer and fall festival calendar.
Says Friedman, “I have assembled three incredible musicians, and together we will deliver an experience only to be described as, true classic metal. We are going to devastate every audience, every night, without mercy!”
