After Ronnie James Dio died in May 2010, Judas Priest‘s Rob Halford, Black Sabbath‘s Geezer Butler and other members of the hard rock/heavy metal community were quick to express their appreciation in public for the powerful, pint-size singer.
A belated Dio tribute came from a rather unlikely source on Feb. 17 when alt-country star Ryan Adams busted out a solo acoustic cover of ‘Holy Diver’ during his concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
This year’s tribute to the late Dimebag Darrell Abbott was a who’s who of heavy metal Gods. Sebastian Bach, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, former Guns N’ Roses member Duff McKagan, and Tom Morello were just a few of the artists that showed up to honor the former Pantera guitarist, as well as the late Ronnie James Dio.
A slew of big time rock ‘n’ rollers and other high-profile fans have sent in video testimonials to mark Metallica‘s 30th anniversary, which the band celebrated last week with a four-night stand of concerts at the Fillmore Theater in their hometown of San Francisco. Aerosmith, Slash, Jimmy Page, Sammy Hagar, Queen‘s Brian May and Rush are among the artists and bands sending their best wishes in video clips posted on Metallica’s official website.
Queen‘s Roger Taylor has chosen the six young musicians pictured here in Brady Bunch fashion to serve as the band and singers for the 2012 Queen Extravaganza tour. (Guess that makes him “Michael,” huh?) After a nearly five-month long search for four musicians and two singers to form the ultimate tribute band, the drummer made his decisions on Monday in Los Angeles.
Apple Inc. and the Beatles have been intertwined since the computer giant’s earliest days, so it’s only fitting that the band’s music should be used to pay tribute to recently deceased company founder Steve Jobs.
