TomMorello 070511

Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine has hooked up with Serj Tankian of System of a Down to record a cover of the Ozzy Osbourne classic "Crazy Train." The track features on a new covers album dedicated to the late Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads.

"Randy Rhoads is my favorite guitar player of all time," Morello tells Rolling Stone.

"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."

"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," writes Consequence of Sound.

Randy Rhoads - The Ultimate Tribute is due via UDR Music on March 3.
