SLASH To Perform MOTÖRHEAD Classic With DAVE GROHL And LEMMY At REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS

Legendary VELVET REVOLVER/GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash will perform at the second annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards presented by Epiphone — set to tape Thursday, April 8 at Los Angeles' Club Nokia and air on VH1 Classic on May 22.

One of the greatest rock guitar players of all time and Epiphone signature artist, Slash will open the show with several numbers from his upcoming debut solo album, "Slash". Lemmy Kilmister of MOTÖRHEAD, Andrew Stockdale of WOLFMOTHER and Myles Kennedy of ALTER BRIDGE, who appear on his album, will be his special guests.

Lemmy Kilmister will team up with Slash and Dave Grohl to perform the electrifying MOTÖRHEAD classic "Ace of Spades". Later in the evening, Grohl will be on hand to present Lemmy with the "Revolver Golden Gods Lifetime Achievement Award" (sponsored by Splatterhouse).

Another highly anticipated performance at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards is by influential hard rock icon ROB ZOMBIE, who will be joined for the first time by new touring drummer, SLIPKNOT's Joey Jordison. Two songs from the group's live set will air on ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Friday, April 23.

To add to the night of mayhem, Epiphone signature artist and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY leader Zakk Wylde will be on hand to perform a very special metal version of the national anthem.

Who will take home the honor of "Epiphone Best Guitarist Award," "Drum Workshop Best Drummer Award," "Liquid Metal Best Vocalist Award," "Harley-Davidson Album of the Year Award," "Samson Zoom Best Live Band Award," "Ferret Music Best Underground Band Award," "Ballhype Most Metal Athlete Award," "Just Cause 2 Hottest Chick(s) in Metal Award" and the "Guitar World Comeback Of The Year Award"? Only the fans decide as voting continues now through Wednesday, March 31 at this location.

The Revolver Golden Gods — hosted by musician, activist and entrepreneur Andrew W.K. and professional WWE wrestling superstar, lead singer of FOZZY, actor and author Chris Jericho — will also include hard-rocking musical numbers by FEAR FACTORY (who will make their first L.A. appearance ever with their new lineup), AS I LAY DYING, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and last year's host, Brian Posehn, with an all-star band featuring Scott Ian, Brendon Small, John Tempesta, Brett Anderson and Joey Vera.
