RENOWNED BASSIST LAUNCHES SONGWRITING CONTEST

(From Music Connection) To celebrate his new book, Off the Rails: Aboard the Crazy Train in the Blizzard of Ozz — a first-hand account of his friendship on and off the road with Randy Rhoads and Ozzy Osbourne — legendary rock bassist Rudy Sarzo (who also played with Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, Dio and Blue Oyster Cult) is launching a songwriting contest on Kompoz.com. Musicians and fans are invited to collaborate on Kompoz.com, and create a brand new song to be featured on RudySarzo.com by downloading bass grooves and riffs created by Sarzo (available at the web location), then assembling tracks. Details are at www.kompoz.com.
