Back in 2021, John Petrucci assembled an all-star cast of electric guitar heroes to take part in his Guitar Universe 3.0 guitar camp, which was billed as “four days and nights of performing, shredding and intense rock ‘n’ roll”.

Among those recruited by Trooch were Animals As Leaders’ Tosin Abasi, Megadeth’s Kiko Loureiro and Born Of Osiris’s Jason Richardson, as well as Dave LaRue, Mike Mangini, Andy Wood and Rena Petrucci.
