LEMMY, OZZY, SLASH, GROHL AND MORE GET HAPPILY HEAVY
The second annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards are set to tape Thursday, April 8 at Los Angeles' Club Nokia, and air on VH1 Classic on May 22.
Iconic guitarist Slash will perform. He will open the show with several numbers from his upcoming debut solo album. Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother and Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge, who appear on his album, will be his special guests.
