JAKE E' LEE
Jake E Lee of Red Dragon Cartel, Badlands, and Former Ozzy Osbourne Guitarist. Jake uses a RJS 68/100 Superlead,, and a 76/100-X
Jake E. Lee (born February 15, 1957) is an American guitarist signed to Shrapnel Records. He is best known for playing with Ozzy Osbourne between 1983-1987 and later in Badlands with Ray Gillen. He formed the band Red Dragon Cartel in 2013. Their eponymous first album was released in January 2014 and entered at No. 69 on Billboard's Album Charts.

Among the most underrated and under-recorded guitarists in America today, Scott Bradoka calls his 2013, 17 track CD collection Never Been Cool. Just that name alone conjures up all kinds of perceived detriments, yet in a concerted effort to bring his name back into the limelight, with Never Been Cool, Bradoka has put together a well-rounded collection of remixed archival tracks from the past fifteen years along with several newly recorded tracks. For guitar buffs who have followed his career over the past decade, you can't really mention the name Scott Bradoka without at least mentioning the name Eric Bazilian, the singer-songwriter who turned rock fusion guitar instrumental advocate when he teamed up with Scott for his 2003 album Create Your Own Reality.
Scott Bradoka uses a RJS 68/50 Small Box Plexi. Scott also uses a Smith Maple top strat I built him back in 1992 if memory serves me.
Jacob started playing guitar at the young age of ten years old. He was inspired by his favorite band KISS to pickup the instrument after seeing them live. He loved the idea of getting on a stage and providing this unbelievable experience for the fans. He wanted to offer the same experience for his friends and family. He then decided to get some lessons, and after a short time, his teacher noticed a hobby could end up becoming a potential career. Jacob started playing with local bands at the age of twelve. He filled in for many groups, playing a wide variety of genres including blues, country, jazz and pop. He started his own band called Stay Tuned with his twin brother (singer) that covered 80’s rock music. The band did many shows, and even released an EP of original glam metal music. Stay Tuned had a great run and it was due to the fact that they offered an unforgettable experience that inspired Jacob in the beginning. Jacob then went on and cofounded the Country band Westward Sons with singer James Rensink in the beginning of 2017. The band got off the ground quickly opening for artists Lee Brice, and Jerrod Niemann. Jacob started doing session work towards the end of 2017 as well. Jacob has worked with some of the industries best including Steel Panther, Reed Robertson (Duck Dynasty), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne/ Quiet Riot) Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Billy Idol, Ozzy Osbourne) Blas Elias (Slaugter/Trans Siberian Orchestra) Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol, Vince Neil) Great White, Carmine Rojas (Joe Bonamassa/David Bowie), Greg Douglass (Steve Miller Band), Alvin Taylor (Jimi Hendrix), Harold Brown (War), Ashes (Devil Driver/Static X), and more.
