    A number of big-name rockers are paying homage to Randy Rhoads, the late guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot, with a new covers album. Entitled Randy Rhoads – The Ultimate Tribute, it’s due out on March 3rd through UDR Music.

    Without a doubt, the tracklist’s biggest highlight is a cover of “Crazy Train” featuring System of a Down singer Serj TankianRage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello; one-time Black Sabbath drummer Vinny Appice; and bassist Rudy Sarzo, who played with Rhoads in both Osbourne’s band and Quiet Riot. These days it’s a rarity to hear Tankian’s signature vocals on a fresh recording as hard-hitting as this, but Morello ultimately steals the show with some hellishly brilliant guitar work. With all his recent solo work as The Nighwatchman, you almost forget how great of an axeman he really is.
