In response to some recent comments about me.  It’s been great to see Anthrax’ success throughout all the years.  I’m very happy for all the current and former members who got to be part of it!  However, I find it very sad that somebody I’ve had no contact for 30 years feels that it’s necessary to fabricate lies about me in order to draw attention to themselves.  I wish them all the luck in the world on their new work of fiction.  I’m sure it must be as good as “Lord Of The Rings”.  Oh…and by the way, make sure to catch me this fall on tour in US, Canada, Brazil, Chile singing with UK thrash metal legends Onslaught Thrash Invasion Tour 2014 with Artillery, VX36, Eclipse Prophecy http://www.powerfromhell.com/site/live/upcoming-gigs also look for new album releases in 2015 from my bands

neilturbinsykeeler_638Former ANTHRAX Singer NEIL TURBIN To Replace SY KEELER On ONSLAUGHT's 'Thrash Invasion' Tour

ONSLAUGHT vocalist Sy Keeler will sit out the band’s upcoming “Thrash Invasion Tour 2014″ of the U.S., Canada and South America due to health issues with his son. He will be replaced for the duration of the trek by former ANTHRAX singer Neil Turbin.

Says Keeler: “I know you are going to be disappointed with my decision as am I, but I sincerely hope you can understand our situation.

“My reason for this is the ongoing health issues with my son, who has been suffering with a debilitating illness for some time. He is still on a downward path with no sign of any recovery on the horizon. Therefore, to be away for two months will put a lot of pressure on the family and increased anxiety on my son. We also have regular visits to specialists coming up during the next six months. Therefore, at this time, I am having to think of my family first and sadly I am unable to be away in the Americas for the duration intended.”

Adds ONSLAUGHT guitarist Nige Rockett: “We’re extremely gutted that Sy cannot make this tour and, of course, we wish Sy‘s family all the best in this difficult time. We are positive things will improve in the very near future and look forward to having Sy with us back real soon.

“It was a really tough decision for us to make also, but Sy was very supportive that we take out a replacement vocalist to make this tour happen.

“So much work had already been carried out by our management / booking agents / promoters behind the scenes, it would have been unfair to let our team down, the other bands down and, most importantly, not to let our fans down.

“On a positive note, it’s gonna be awesome to have Neil Turbin on board for the tou. For me, he’s always been one of the best thrash metal vocalists out there, no question. His work on the ANTHRAX album ‘Fistful Of Metal’ was simply amazing, and I believe he’s one of the only guys in the genre who could step into Sy‘s shoes. I think it brings a unique edge to this tour and I’m sure the fans will really dig what they hear.”

Ex-ANTHRAX Singer NEIL TURBIN Performs New Song ‘Ride With Death’ At HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR (Video)

Ex-ANTHRAX Singer NEIL TURBIN Performs New Song 'Ride With Death' At HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR (Video)
deathridersheadbangers20142_638

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of ANTHRAX‘s debut album, “Fistful Of Metal”, the band’s former lead singer, Neil Turbin, and a backing group of musicians calling themselves DEATHRIDERS (not to be confused with Neil‘s long-running Los Angeles-based band of the same name) performed the entire LP on their recent European tour.

Fan-filmed video footage of DEATHRIDERS playing a new song called “Ride With Death” on July 24 at the Headbangers Open Air festival in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, Germany can be seen below. The track was co-written by Jonas Hörnqvist of BLEED THE HUNGER and TREASURE LAND.

The DEATHRIDERS team features:

* Gert Nijboer (HIGHWAY CHILE) – Guitar
* Hans In’t Zandt (PRAYING MANTIS) – Drums
* Conrad Hultermans (X-TINXION) – Guitar
* Kornee Kleefman (KROSSBREED) – Bass

Turbin and company played all of “Fistful Of Metal” plus songs from ANTHRAX‘s “Armed And Dangerous” EP which had not been played live by Neil since 1984. Neil co-wrote and sang on “Fistful Of Metal” and co-authored most songs on “Armed And Dangerous”, and a couple songs on “Spreading The Disease”, which he performed live with ANTHRAX on their first North American tour in 1984.

The only ANTHRAX record to feature Turbin and bassist Danny Lilker — in addition to Scott Ian (rhythm guitar), Charlie Benante (drums), and Dan Spitz (lead guitar) — the band’s debut album, “Fistful of Metal”, was originally released in January 1984, spawning such early classics as “Deathrider” and “Metal Thrashing Mad”.

Asked in a 2009 interview about the reason for his departure from ANTHRAX, Turbin said: “I was a member of ANTHRAX from August 1982 up until August 1984. I was a member of ANTHRAX for exactly two years. The reason I left… well, there were a number of things, actually. The whole relationship started to deteriorate after a while, there was definitely backstabbing from certain people who chose to hang around with other people instead of focusing in the band. I was into metal… focused on music while Scott Ian and Charlie Benante formed an alliance and Dan Spitz just followed. In a matter of months, it was simply a case of them versus me. It was very difficult to deal with them, because it was obvious that we wouldn’t get along and they were also more interested in other things than music… at least back then. We didn’t establish a trusted friendship within the band… that’s for sure.”

The Los Angeles-based version of DEATHRIDERS is recording its debut album, “The Metal Beast”, with a lineup that includes Turbin, Jonas Hörnqvist (BLEED THE HUNGER, TREASURE LAND) on guitar, Howie Simon (ALCATRAZZ, NELSON) on guitar, and Matt Thompson (KING DIAMOND, SHAOLIN DEATH SQUAD) on drums.

Randy Rhoads Remembered Special Guest Vocalist Neil Turbin

Randy Rhoads Remembered Special Guest Vocalist Neil Turbin

“I met Randy Rhoads with Ozzy Osbourne August 14, 1981 at Nassau Coliseum in NY. Def Leppard was opening. My girlfriend worked for Leber-Krebs who was Def Leppard’s management. I was in their dressing room with my GF before Def Leppard arrived. DL got settled in the room said hello straight away. They were all cool, friendly and humble guys. The next thing I noticed was these off the chart super hot girls that the band brought with them. It looked like half of 12 months of the Playboy calendar showing up in the room. As we were hanging out, in walked Ozzy and Randy introducing themselves to everyone. I was blown away that just happened. How does a kid from Queens get the chance to meet the amazing Randy Rhoads and Ozzy too! It was an incredible evening and experience which I remember well.

I brought my cassette tape recorder and remember Def Leppard were good that night. Then came Blizzard of Ozz with Randy Rhoads. When Randy hit the stage with Ozzy it was a sight to behold. He had this incredible stage presence and great unique heavy metal style. As they started to play their first song, “I Don’t Know,” the crowd went apeshit. When Randy played the pinch harmonics and they bounced off the roof of the Nassau Coliseum it sounded like Zeus came down from the heavens with lightning and thunder. Then Randy played these super shredding speedy licks within the nuances of the song. It was like he was shooting lightning bolts from his guitar. His guitar tone and playing on his signature 1974 Gibson Les Paul was so on fucking fire. Randy blew everyones doors off and the band was tight as fuck and killed it hard. Ozzy was at his peak. I will never forget it. It made a huge impression and impact on how I approached music and singing. It was one of the coolest moments I can ever remember. A total game changer. Good thing I still have the cassette tape of it. I was compelled to buy one of the Randy Rhoads signature Les Pauls 1974 Reissue VOS. Randy’s tone and pinch harmonics were some of the best things I’ve ever heard come from a guitar ever. That was some serious next level Holy Shit.

I am extremely honored and super stoked to be part of the Randy Rhoads Remembered Event that honors the late great pioneer of shred guitar Randy Rhoads.

~ Neil Turbin (DEATHRIDERS, Anthrax)

Regarding the brand new celebration, Randy Rhoads Remembered, Tichy also went on to say, “When the opportunity arose to have the venue a 2nd night, I catered to the guitarist in me and went for a brand new show as my partner, Joe Sutton, and myself had talked of this while brainstorming ideas over the years. We decided to take the Bonzo Bash template and celebrate the music and wizardry of one of rock’s truly legendary guitar heroes; Randy Rhoads! Having grown up at a time when Randy took over the guitar world, he impacted me deeply. It seemed that a show in the Bonzo Bash mold would be perfect to celebrate all things Randy Rhoads!
With that said, in addition to the superb list of guitarists, I am psyched to announce some more of the world’s most brilliant players to RRR!!!; Marty Friedman, Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne / Firewind,) Mats Leven (vox- Candlemass / Yngwie Malmsteen,) Mitch Perry(Lita Ford / Edgar Winter,) former Randy Rhoads’ student Janet Robin (Precious Metal / Lindsey Buckingham / Air Supply,) Phil X (The Drills / Bon Jovi.) We have not yet begun to rock! We are not yet finished with these lineups! Plus, anything can change up to day of show… and usually does!!
I must also give a big thanks to photographer Jay Banbury! He has taken some of the most iconic
live photos of Randy Rhoads. Jay has graciously allowed us to use one for our concert poster and t-shirt! Go to Jay’s website and order up some killer Randy posters now! (www.139creative.com)
I can’t forget to also mention that our bud Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne / Billy Idol / Big Noize) has become an additional member of the RRR house band, “The Madmen.” Rudy Sarzo is on tour with Queensrcyhe up to rehearsal day, so Phil is helping out on a nice chunk of tunes!

GUITARIST QUOTES:

“Watching Randy at 10am in the Oakland coliseum was my 1st concert experience and it was life changing. It made me want to not only play guitar, but to perform with passion and emotion. I’m beyond honored to be part of this celebration of a true legend and an immense inspiration.”
~ Phil Demmel (Machine Head)

“As a kid I was a huge Sabbath fan, and was curious to see Ozzy`s solo band. I was lucky to see them on their first US tour at the Baltimore Civic Center. I had no idea who anyone in the band was. I couldn`t take my eyes off the charisma, excitement and overall coolness of the guitarist, Randy. He completely stole the show. I was just becoming a decent player myself back then, so seeing him really made me up my game. — At that time, Ozzy wasn`t the mainstream personality he is now, there was a shroud of darkness and even desperation around him and his departure from Sabbath at a time when Sabbath had all but fallen out of vogue. Randy was a beacon of light, literally lighting up the stage with his flashy guitar work and upbeat performance. I am convinced that he is a huge part of Ozzy`s longterm success. Tragically we lost him way too early. It`s nice to see that so many years later people have not forgotten the joy he brought to music, so it`s absolutely my pleasure to honor him by participating in Randy Rhoads Remembered concert.”
~ Marty Friedman

“Everybody knows that Randy Rhoads has been an inspiration to all generations of guitar players after him. But to me Randy was not only inspirational for his playing and writing skills, but for his attitude as well. I loved how low profile and humble of a person he was, always learning and moving forward. He was a servant of Music and that inspired me (and many others) on a whole different level. I’m truly honored to participate in RRR and celebrate Randy Rhoads’ life and music alongside these great musicians!”
~ Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne / Firewind)

“Randy entered my soul like a lightning bolt and has remained there throughout my life.
He was like a magician but it was all real.”
~ Tracii Guns

I absolutely wore out my cassettes of Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman when I was starting out. Randy was one of my earliest influences. Those influences are special to me because it’s before I’d acquired enough musical skill to hear things differently than a non-player/musician. He was a part of music that was/is full of “magic” and for that reason Randy is one of those players who will ALWAYS remain special in my heart. Also, as the son of two classical musicians, I admire his musical versatility and open-mindedness that obviously had a great effect on young rockers. I’m totally honored to be a part of this amazing event!”

~ Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger / Rock of Ages / Trans Siberian Orchestra)

“Randy is one of the most amazing virtuosos of all times. His unique, personal style and his fearless melodic approach caught my attention when I was discovering the electric guitar. I have spent many days in my teenager times trying to figure out how to play his awesome solos and riffs. I am excited and honored to be invited to join the incredible line-up of guitar players on “Randy Rhoads Remembered.” Each of us getting up on stage to pay tribute to a great guitar player that is a source of inspiration to generations of musicians.”
~ Kiko Loureiro (Angra)

“I am totally honored to be a part of “Randy Rhoads Remembered”. Randy was a great musician whose talents influenced a generation of guitarists as we will see by the stellar lineup of players I will be joining on January 25th. Knowing everyone involved with this show (and previously working with Brian Tichy and Joe Sutton on “The Bonzo Bash”) I know this is going to be a night we will all be proud to have been a part of…”
~ Mitch Perry (Lita Ford / Edgar Winter)

Throughout the history guitar playing, there have been the undisputed masters of different genres. When it comes to the the nineteen eighties sound of hard rock guitar, in my mind, the two colossi have to be Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads. They did it better than the rest. Everyone has their corner and their mark of brilliance, but have to be, in my mind, relegated to ‘best of the rest.’ What I do, and so many others like me do, Randy wrote the book on, and showed us the way.
~ Rowan Robertson (Dio/ DC4)

“Randy’s approach to fusing classical music with heavy metal was so unique. I studied his playing like mad. Even his gear – I was reading all the magazines to see what he used, and I bought my first Marshall amp because that’s what he played through. Randy was definitely an early guitar hero of mine. He was unlike anybody around at the time. He played with such fire, grace and intelligence. Randy Rhoads’ playing still stuns me.”
~ Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Guns N’ Roses)

“I am so psyched to get this show together! Randy’s playing, and the music on those 2 Ozzy records were huge to me! I am a drummer but I also started putting a lot of time into guitar at the same time Randy came out. I heard Ozzy being interviewed on the radio when Blizzard Of Ozz was released. They played “I Don’t Know” and when the guitar kicked in I was floored and I was an instant fan! I spent countless hours trying to learn Randy’s songs, riffs and solos while I was also just a beginner on guitar. I tried to learn Randy’s live solo note for note! I had Randy’s posters on my basement walls! I still have those posters framed in my house right now! Brent Woods and I even shared a bottle of Randy Rhoads wine when it first came out!”
~ Brian TIchy (S.U.N.)

“31 years after the tragic death of my mentor and favorite guitar player, it’s time for a proper celebration of Randy’s legacy. Being involved with the Bonzo Bash since day one, I know Randy Rhoads Remembered will be a tribute unlike any other.”

“After school 1981. Drop the needle. ‘Blizzard Of Ozz’. WTF?!?! The guy who took the 6 in the pentatonic scale and made it minor instead of major so that ANYONE who plays it in sequence to this day is reminded of Randy Rhoads.
His heart, his soul, his choice of notes. His FIRE. That kind of inspiration stays with you ’til death. And now… 2014. Randy Rhoads Remembered. A bunch of as-inspired awesome musicians paying homage to this amazing guy who contributed SO MUCH to ROCK guitar. I am so excited to be a part of it. I CAN’T F@CKING WAIT!”
