Artist Biography by

The Lizards
New York-based four-piece the Lizards make classic rock-influenced prog, heavy metal, blues, and funk. Formed in the early 2000s by former Star People bassist Randy Pratt, the Lizards went through several lineup changes before settling on vocalist/keyboardist Mike DiMeo (Riot, Masterplan), guitarist Patrick Klein, and drummer Bobby Rondinelli (Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Blue Öyster Cult). With albums like The Lizards (2001), Lizards Rule (2003), Cold Blooded Kings (2004), and Against All Odds (2006), the group built a loyal following for their old-school brand of high-energy rock. In 2015, the Lizards released their seventh album, Reptilicus Maximus, featuring guest appearances from Vinnie Moore (UFO), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), and Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush).
