Sebastian Bach, David Ellefson + More Honor Randy Rhoads at Tribute Concert
Sebastian Bach, David Ellefson, Rudy Sarzo, Alex Skolnick and more musicians gathered to remember the late great Randy Rhoads over the weekend in Santa Ana, Calif. The event, billed as ‘Randy Rhoads Remembered,' featured a bevy of rockers stepping up to pay homage to the guitarist, who died in a plane crash in 1982. Watch Rudy Sarzo, Brian Tichy and more perform Ozzy Osbourne's 'I Don’t Know’ in the fan show video above.
According to Blabbermouth, the show featured metal all-stars performing every song from Ozzy’s iconic albums ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ and ‘Diary of a Madman,’ both of which featured Rhoads. Co-creator of the event Brian Tichy, who played drums with Ozzy, Billy Idol and Whitesnake, sat behind the kit all night. He previously said of the show, “To me, there's no cooler place to be than at these mighty events! I feel like a wildebeest that's made it across a croc-infested river onto fresh grassland; heartily content!"
The concert also featured performances from Charlie Benante, Phil X, Joel Hoekstra, Rowan Robertson, Kiko Loureiro and more. Watch the fan shot videos from the show below.
