Guitarist Doug Aldrich is an ordinary guy with an extraordinary talent. This gifted instrumentalist has spent the better part of his life as a dedicated partner to the six string, be it named Les Paul, Jackson, or Fender. 

Doug Aldrich was first introduced to the guitar at age 11 when his sister Jennifer introduced him to the playing of Jeff Beck. A now Los Angeles-based hard rock guitarist. he founded the band Burning Rain with Keith St. John in 1998 and has played previously with Whitesnake, Dio, Lion, Hurricane, House of Lords, Bad Moon Rising and Revolution Saints. He has also released several solo albums.

Doug joined the production show Raiding the Rock Vault at the Tropicana Las Vegas in early 2014, where he performed six shows a week with other Rock’n’Roll greats including Robin McAuley (formerly Survivor, MSG), John Payne (Asia), Howard Leese (Bad Company, Heart), Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot) and Andrew Freeman (Offspring), among others. As of late 2015 this collaboration was still on ongoing project.

During 2015, as guitarist, he joined Glenn Hughes along with drummer Pontus Engborg, to complete the power trio with Hughes on bass and vocals.

In late January 2016, he replaced guitarist Richard Fortus and is currently with the band The Dead Daisies.
