It’s actually the brain child of Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn.
He and other members of Machine Head are getting together with members of Metallica, Slayer, Testament, Exodus, Death Angel, Forbidden, Suicide Silence and Spiralarms for an all-star tribute band to Black Sabbath.
Called “Robb Flynn & Friends,” the one-off show is planned for the Oakland Metro Operahouse in Oakland, California, on January 17.
A benefit, the proceeds will help Nikki Davis — a friend of the band who was involved in a motorcycle accident which claimed the life of her husband, Jeff.
“Nikki survived but she was unconscious for a few days. She awoke to the daunting reality that her husband, soulmate and best friend had passed away. It was heartbreaking to all of us in the Bay Area scene,” says a press release.
