Chuck Billy + Alexi Laiho Lead ‘Mr. Crowley’ Cover on Randy Rhoads Tribute Disc
There's a lot of love for late Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads being shown this year. A new tribute album, 'Immortal Randy Rhoads -- The Ultimate Tribute,' is set to drop on March 3 with a star-studded group of rockers paying homage. Leading up to the disc's release, another of the outstanding covers has arrived -- 'Mr. Crowley.'
The rendition on the 'Immortal Randy Rhoads' disc features Testament's Chuck Billy on vocals, Children of Bodom's Alexi Laiho on guitar, onetime Ozzy Osbourne band member Rudy Sarzo on bass, Heaven and Hell's Vinny Appice on drums and Kelle Rhoads handling keys on the track. It premiered on L.A. Weekly, but you can check it out in the player above.
It follows in the footsteps of the recently released rendition of 'Crazy Train' that had System of a Down's Serj Tankian on vocals, Tom Morello handling the guitar work, with Sarzo and Appice as the rhythm section.
The collection also features contributions from Quiet Riot's Frankie Banali, Tim "Ripper" Owens, current Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G., Anthrax's Jon Donais, onetime KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick and many more. The set features 11 tracks that were co-written by Rhoads and also comes with a bonus DVD that includes interviews with some of the participating artists.
