Criteria Entertainment. Los Angeles, CA. (March 12, 2013) – Internationally celebrated bassist Rudy Sarzo’s musical talent will once again be showcased in April, as the legendary musician embarks on tour with Geoff Tate’s Queensrÿche.
Rudy Sarzo is also the third name, along with Los Lonely Boys and Enanitos Verdes, to be announced as part of “Luz”, the upcoming tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival. The tribute seeks to generate awareness on the importance of green energy and sustainability in Latin America, a topic close to Cuban-born Sarzo’s heart.
In recognition of his prolific career, Peavey – a brand that has accompanied the music star for well over two decades – will re-issue his signature Rudy Sarzo bass guitars, an endorsement that originated in 1990 with an ad campaign stating, “The American Bass Heard ‘Round the World.”
An internationally recognized recording and performing artist for 30 years, Rudy Sarzo has collaborated with some of the industry’s most iconic bands like Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot, participating on the group’s greatest albums, including the multi-platinum “Metal Health”, the first heavy metal debut to reach #1 in the Billboard charts. As member of some of rock n’ roll and metal’s top bands, he has headlined worldwide tours and continues to tour incessantly, with world-class talent that earned him the title as #1 Bassist in Circus Magazine in 1983. His recordings have sold more than 30 million copies combined.
Sarzo is also the author of “Off The Rails:Aboard the Crazy Train in the Blizzard of Ozz”, an interesting insight into the late great guitar virtuoso Randy Rhoads’ life. The book is a firsthand account of Rudy’s friendship with Rhoads and singer Ozzy Osbourne on and off the road, covering the birth of Osbourne’s solo career, his relationship with Sharon Osbourne and the breaking of his soul.
Along with touring and performances, Rudy continues to be active in his work as a mentor for Rock n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, a musician project in which he presents music production and bass clinics to the public along with other members of his various bands.
