Other than those mentioned:

James LaBrie replacing whoever was in Dream theater.
Roy Khan replacing whoever was in Kamelot.
Phil Collins replacing Peter Gabriel in Genesis.
Probably made him put more money into the production of Virtual XI. It just does not sound like a well established metal band doing this album. And it sounds a bit rushed as well. The album have great songs, but terrible production, mixing and arrangements
I’m ashamed to say I’ve only heard three albums from 2021 so far. Just Senjutsu, the Smith/Kotzen disc and John Mayer - Sob rock.
Senjutsu sounds great, but I haven’t listened to it for a while now, have forgot a few of the songs already. Smith/Kotzen I’ve just listened to briefly, it didn’t...
Looking forward to new Battle beast, Sabaton, Stratovarius, Sonata arctica, Star one, Pain of salvation, Avantasia, Amorphis, Power paladin, Blind guardian, Abbath, Slash & the conspirators, Porcupine tree and Megadeth
