Tom Morello and Serj Tankian Release Crazy Train Cover

Immortal Randy Rhoads: The Ultimate Tribute

Purchase Immortal Randy Rhoads: The Ultimate Tribute

I am so juiced about the upcoming album, “Immortal Randy Rhoads: The Ultimate Tribute,” which is a tribute album the the greatest guitar player of all time, the one and only Randy Rhoads. Crazy Train was being covered by an interesting duo in Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello and System of a Down’s Serj Tankian. It had the potential to rule or be horrible. Thankfully, it lies somewhere in the middle, but is pretty sweet. Check it out below. Drummer Vinny Appice and Quiet Riot bassist Rudy Sarzo also play on the cover.

Morello recently told Rolling Stone:

Randy Rhoads is my favorite guitar player of all time. It was his poster on my wall when I was practicing eight hours a day, and I named my firstborn son, Rhoads, after him. Serj, Rudy, Vinny and I rocked ‘Crazy Train’ as a sonic tribute to one of rock’s greatest fallen heroes. Crank it.
