This imaginatively-titled supergroup (named simply for the first initials of the band members) came and went without a great deal of fanfare despite the pedigree of those involved. Formed by the rhythm section of Rudy Sarzo (between Quiet Riot stints at the time) and Tommy Aldridge, the band put out one album, Project: Driver (apparently a reference to the earlier name of the project) in 1986 on Shrapnel Records (no surprise there given the appearance of Tony MacAlpine), a pretty standard anthemic hard rock/metal affair for the most part. Sure, MacAlpine and vocalist Rob Rock shine, but from a songwriting standpoint this is rather ordinary, and the album got some decent play in its time but ultimately didn't really set the world on fire.
