I had the opportunity to interview Dave Evans last week.
We talked about his past with AC/DC, as well as some the other bands he has been with over the years, and his current plans with his band, “The Badasses”. Check out the Podcast below for the interview! Just click on the link to listen!!
Happy Father’s Day to all of you hard rocking dads out there!
I thought the following video captures the spirit of Father’s Day perfectly.
Rudy Sarzo joins BLUE ÖYSTER CULT as bassist for the balance of 2007. Former bassist with QUIET RIOT, OZZY OSBOURNE, WHITESNAKE and longtime friend of the band, Rudy will play until Ronnie James Dio returns from touring with HEAVEN AND HELL (Rudy is the current bassist in Ronnie’s band DIO).
Rudy and BLUE ÖYSTER CULT singer Eric Bloom have been friends since meeting up at “Hear ‘N Aid” in 1985. Eric says that “Buck and I are really happy to have Rudy playing bass with us. He’s a great fit and a great guy.”
Richie Castellano will continue handling the left side of the stage on keyboards, guitar and vocals.
A video clip of Sarzo handling bass guitar duties for BLUE ÖYSTER CULT’s April 28, 2007 concert at the Hawgs of Texas motorcycle rally in Lake Somerville, TX has been posted at “Burnin’ for You” at YouTube.
