Last night, New York City's Webster Hall hosted the riff-roaring 2016 Epiphone Revolver Music Awards.
The event—formerly known as the Revolver Golden God Awards—was livestreamed via Facebook, Twitch.TV, RevolverMag.com and GuitarWorld.com and hosted by Megadeth's Dave Mustaine and SiriusXM's Jose Mangin.
Performers included Megadeth, Anthrax, Lacuna Coil and Stitched Up Heart. Near the end of the show, Zakk Wylde performed a solo-guitar version of Black Label Society's “In This River” as a teleprompter paid tribute to the many musicians we’ve lost over the past two years (there was no awards show in 2015.)
Other highlights included a performance of “A Tout Le Monde” by Megadeth and Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbia and a Fallen Heroes All-Star Jam that featured Bumblefoot, members of Megadeth, Slipknot, Pop Evil, Annihilator, Mutoid Man, Butcher Babies, Red Sun Rising, Lacuna Coil and Ace Frehley.
During the jam, Butcher Babies' Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd joined Scabbia for a rocking version of Motörhead‘s “Killed By Death." Members of Pop Evil, Red Sun Rising and other bands played Stone Temple Pilots‘ “Plush,” and Frehley, Slipknot‘s Jim Root, Bumblefoot and others rocked Frehley‘s rendition of “New York Groove.”
