Hear Tom Morello and Serj Tankian’s Dizzying ‘Crazy Train’ Cover

Guitarist Tom Morello and System of a Down singer Serj Tankian have joined forces to pay tribute to late Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads, who helped usher classicism into heavy metal before his accidental death in 1982, with a reverent cover of “Crazy Train.” The track will appear on an upcoming compilation, Immortal Randy Rhoads: The Ultimate Tribute, and the recording also features bassist Rudy Sarzo – who played with Rhoads in Ozzy’s band and Quiet Riot – and onetime Black Sabbath drummer Vinny Appice.

Words By Carol Gronner:
A special guest called Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) joined Tom for their sublime duet, “Lazarus On Down”. It features gorgeous deluxe guitar from Tom, and otherworldly vocals by Serj, who was in the best voice I’ve ever heard him. Hauntingly quiet in there, these two founders of Axis Of Justice brought the house down. Almost literally, so eruptive it was after the last note died out.
