The idea of Metal Mob started in the Fall of 2018 when Roger Voss was thinking about forming a Dio Tribute band with Lance Miley. At the time Roger just finished up a tour with The Todd Wolfe Band and Lance was working with an Ozzy Tribute project. Performing just one particular artist for Lance didn't seem like something at the time he'd be interested in, but knowing Rogers hard hitting style of John Bonham and power metal influence of Vinny Appice and Lance's influences for artist like Dio, Ozzy and Ian Gillen Bon Scott and all that created the Metal movement in late 70s and 80s would be extremely exciting and quite a unique project.
Recruiting Metal guitarist Greg Salitis and power driving bassist Jeff Cottrell with the idea of taking an audience back in time when British Metal reconstructed the course of musical history back to the old school days of heroes like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and UFO and all their predecessors by honoring the Godfathers of Metal. Metal Mob was born.
