    Randy Castillo Benefit

    A Final Hurrah In Randy Castillo's Honor at The Key Club In Los Angeles, April 29th; Steven Tyler, Members of Guns N' Roses Perform, Among Many Others

    A benefit concert was held Monday night to honor and bid a final farewell to the great, late drummer, Randy Castillo, as well as to help his surviving family with leftover expenses from his illness. Randy had the best seat in the house, watching from his skybox, as a plethora of musicians and one Icon took the stage in front of a sold-out audience of over 800 people.

    ....ext on stage was the aptly named "Buck N Roses," (or "Cherry Roses," as it was later decided upon) which featured vocalist Joshua Todd and guitarist Keith Nelson (Izzy Stradlin was unable to attend), both of Buckcherry, and Guns N Roses originals, guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Matt Sorum. They spun the crowd into a frenzy, opening with GNRs "Its So Easy" then the Sex Pistols "God Save The Queen," as well as Rose Tattoo/ GNRs "Nice Boys" and Buckcherrys "Lit Up." The band then tore into GNRs "Paradise City," in which Cypress Hills Sen Dog jumped up on stage to provide additional vocals. And then it came Aerosmiths Steven Tyler pounced onstage and blew out the place with an amazing rendition of the Aerosmith classic, Mama Kin. The floors were thumping and the place went wild! Tyler finished his appearance by holding his arms up and looking to the sky, and woefully screamed, Raaaaannndyyyyyyyyyyy!

    Wrapping up the show was an all-star drumming session, which pretty much included everyone who had played earlier in the evening. They even had Randys kit on stage, watching over the evenings festivities.

    Surprisingly, no one from Ozzy showed up (with the exception of Alice In Chains bassist, Mike Inez), and none of the guys from Motley Crue showed up.
