Guitarist Michael Angelo Batio (ex-NITRO) performed at the Rhoadsfest II on December 4, 2010 at Paladino's in Tarzana, California. Billed as "the best Randy Rhoads tribute show ever," Rhoadsfest II was attended by other members of Randy's family and featured a performance by the guitarist's brother, Kelle Rhoads, with RHOADS TO OZZ (said to be "the one true authorized Rhoads tribute band").

Check out fan-filmed video footage of the event below.

In 1982, Rhoads, the then-lead guitarist for OZZY OSBOURNE, and two others were killed at Flying Baron Estates, just outside Leesburg, Florida, when their small plane struck Osbourne's tour bus, then crashed into a mansion.
