April 16th, 2008
Guitarist Jim Santos appears on 2 tracks on the  long awaited AOR project FROZEN RAIN. Early reviews are calling it a classic, must have AOR Masterpeice. The album features contributions from many well known AOR artists such as Tommy Denander (Radioactive), Steve Newman (Newman), Daniel Flores (Minds Eye) &Jim Santos (Norway) . 
Jim added a solo at the end of "Never Be A Fool Again", and a bit of rhythm guitar in" Say That You Love Me". He also did the mixes for those two songs and a 3rd, "Your Love". If you love melodic rock, then do yourself a favor (and Kurt), and head over to his site and pick one up now !
