James Young Rocks Up With Bowie And Black Sabbath

Melbourne is set for two very tasteful rock and roll tribute shows with David Bowie and Black Sabbath the centre of attention, thanks to James Young.

Young will honour Black Sabbath with a complete replication of their debut album at The Corner Hotel, Richmond on March 14 and Bowie’s two classics ‘Young Americans’ and ‘Diamond Dogs’ at The Yarraville Club in Yarraville on March 21.

“Black Sabbath remain the most important heavy metal band there ever was or ever will be. The birthdate of Heavy Metal is Friday the 13th 1970 when Black Sabbath was released,” Young said.

About Bowie he explained, “1974 and 1975 were defining years for the ever-changing super-talent David Bowie as he finished his glam rock period with the outstanding exclamation mark of ‘Diamond Dogs’ and then moved from London to Philadelphia to work with Luther Vandross and re-define soul music in his own inimitable and sexy style on ‘Young Americans’”.

Performing the Sabbath album from start to finish will be Wizards with Matt Chapman, Jake Wiffen, Neil Wilkinson, Daniel Firth, Jim Coelli and Liam Cuffley.

The Bowie tribute band will be The Underlings, featuring Ashley Naylor, Bruce Haymes, Peter Luscombe, Steven Hadley with Anton Ruddick and Ben Marsland with guest lead vocalists Kat Spazzy, Tim Rogers, Ron S Peno, Ross McLennan, Gemma Sharard and Davey Lane.
