Classic Rock is getting some new respect in the world of Hip Hop.
One of the biggest Hip Hop hits of the year "Bezerk" by Eminem uses samples from the Billy Squire song "The Stroke".
So now a new mash up Hip Hop song has hit the internet that has the late Hip Hop legend Notorious B.I.G.'s song "Hypnotize" mashed up with the Led Zeppelin song "Ramble On" and it's called "Ramblize".
Apparently Jimmy Page, like Billy Squire, didn't have anything to do with the production but both approve of the strange combination of Hip Hop and Classic Rock.
Billy said he was impressed with how it was used in the Eminem track and Jimmy said that approved of the B.I.G. track.
Of course since "Bezerk" is a big Hip Hop and Top 40 hit, Billy is most likely enjoying not only the new found publicity but also the fat royalty checks he's getting.
On the other hand "Ramblize" has yet to released as a legit Hip Hop track and I'm sure Jimmy has enough money from his Led Zep career that he dosen't need the cash or pub as much.
Since "Ramblize" isn't an approved song I can't post it here, but if you want to check it out, just Google it or hit Soundcloud.
After rockin' hard and partyin' just as hard for over 40 years, who would guess that the Godfather of Heavy Metal would not only be still alive at 65 but still making new music and selling out venues worldwide?!?
Yes it's true...The Prince of Darkness turns 65 today!
I'll never forget the time I met Ozzy at a meet n' greet after a concert here in Bako back in the '90's.
He brought his solo band to a sold Convention Center and blasted through his Sabbath and solo hits topped off with an encore that included him drenching the front row with a giant Super Soaker water gun.
Looking like a crazed 5 year old on drugs he raced across the stage and promptly slipped on a water puddle on stage and busted his ass.
But like a true Metal Head he didn't blow off our radio station meet n' greet after the show and stayed to take photos and sign autographs for out listeners.
And he was nothing short of hilarious.
Here's what he said to me when it was my turn: " I'm Ozzy...damn glad to meet ya...oh me freakin' back!"
To celebrate Ozzy's big b-day he is asking fans to donate to one of his favorite charities The Royal Mardsen Cancer Charity who have raised over 100 million pounds (that's English dollars) to fund pioneering developments in cancer care over the last 10 years.
