Megadeth Band Member Tree
Al Pitrelli's Career
It is hardly possible to include whole Al Pitrelli's career in the Band Member Tree above, because Al Pitrelli often collaborated with a few bands simultaneously, moreover he participated in tens of side projects and he made appearances on many recordings of lots of different artists. The list of his side projects and artists he collaborated with includes Albert Carey Project, Doro Pesch, Expose, Flesh and Blood, Kathy Toccoli, Michael Ellis, Mojo Bros, Morning Wood, O'2L, Place Called Rage, Taylor Dayne, Ten Ton Tide, The Bob Pressner Band, Joe Lynn Turner and TM Stevens. He also toured with Alice Cooper (in 1989-1990, during the Trash tour) and Black Oyster Cult (in 1999). The table on the left shows eight bands Al Pitrelli was involved with (each dot stands for one album). Savatage and Megadeth are however the only bands, of which he has "officially" been a member (as Trans Siberian Orchestra is just a spin-off project of Savatage). It was Jimmy DeGrasso, who recommended Al Pitrelli to Dave Mustaine as a suitable replacement for Marty Friedman. Other candidates were Stef Burns (Y&T, Alice Cooper) and James Murphy (Testament).
