June 1, 2000-Ron will be appearing on the New Jersey based radio show The Tour Bus on Saturday June 24. While Ron's time on the show hasn't been confirmed yet, the show airs from 8 PM until 1 AM eastern on 105.5 WDHA FM and at WDHA.com. Ron will have his new band Iron Horse with him and since most artists who visit The Tour Bus perform acoustic songs, don't be surprised if Ron doesn't do the same. Copies of the soon to be re-issued "The Right To Rock" will also be given away.

Look for Iron Horse to possibly be performing in the NY-NJ-CT area during the week of The Tour Bus show, and the band may also be doing some dates in Ohio as well. Nothing is confirmed as of yet, but stay tuned for more news on possible shows.

May 20, 2000-"The Right To Rock" cd-reissue release is only weeks away, and we have some great Keel news to tide you over until then. When the cd is released, a firm early-June date should be available very soon, it will include one bonus track. The re-mix version of "Easier Said Than Done" will be included on the cd, which will feature the same cover as the original releases, but different liner notes. Metal Mayhem Music will be giving us a firm release date very soon.

Metal Mayhem's next project will be to release a full length album from Ron Keel's Fair Game project. They are aiming for an early July release. After that, a live Keel album, and a compilation home video will be worked on. So, the re-issue of "The Right To Rock" is just the beginning of new Keel product for 2000.

Ron recently came across four un-released Keel tracks that were recorded after the 1987 selt-titled album. Two of them feature the classic Keel line-up, while the other two feature the post 1987 version of Keel. Where and when these songs will turn up is still up in the air.

March 24, 2000-Ron has some news about his new project, Iron Horse, over at his site.

March 13, 2000-Mark this day down as the day that the re-issue of "The Right To Rock" was officially confirmed. Metal Mayhem Music will be re-issuing the sought after album which is Keel's second record and from 1985. Many Keelaholics know that the album was only released on cd in Japan, and has been out of print for a few years there. People who could find the disc paid hundreds of dollars to obtain the import release. This will all change now however come June. We'll have more details in the coming weeks on this huge news!

February 23, 2000-Finally some news on the topic of getting the older Keel albums re-issued on cd! Ron Keel says that work is being done to get "The Right To Rock", "The Final Frontier", and "Keel" re-issued on compact disc. This is big news, so keep checking back here on the Keel site and at Ron's site. Speaking of the Ron Keel website, Ron and his team have put up a new pictures section that is a must see for Keelaholics. The pages feature some great shots of Ron, Keel and more. The pictures page here on the Keel site is down and will be as we add more images to the collection. Look for it to be back up within a week.
