Famed metal bassist, Rudy Sarzo, has performed along side some of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll groups in history, playing the role of bassist for bands such as Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Blue Oyster Cult and of course, Ozzy Osbourne, all of which we brought to you in our previous interview with him. Yet after building up a career that nearly anyone in the music industry would kill to have, Rudy decided to leave Blue Oyster Cult to focus on other projects. In particular, he joined the Japanese-based anime-centric metal group, ‘Animetal USA.’
Bassist Rudy Sarzo’s career, from a gig perspective, has been the stuff that dreams are made of for hopeful musician wannabes. While Sarzo was only in Ozzy Osbourne’s band for less than two years, he was there during a moment of critical rebirth, when the former Black Sabbath frontman was in the process of proving himself as a solo artist.
To promote their upcoming album, 'Rize of the Fenix,' Tenacious D have enlisted the help of their friends in both the comedy and rock worlds. Bob Odenkirk, known for his work on 'Mr. Show' and 'Breaking Bad,' teamed up with bassist Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne) to create an mock-informational film on behalf of the Tinnitus Institute.
