LEMMY, RUDY SARZO Join GIRLSCHOOL On 'Emergency Haiti 2010' Charity Single

MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister, bassist Rudy Sarzo (OZZY OSBOURNE, QUIET RIOT, WHITESNAKE, DIO, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT), veteran British female hard rockers GIRLSCHOOL and 25 young musicians from Cornwall's live youth music project Livewire are featured on the "Emergency Haiti 2010" charity single put together to raise money for the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

The cover of the 1980 GIRLSCHOOL classic "Emergency" is dedicated to late GIRLSCHOOL guitarist Kelly Johnson and legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (BLACK SABBATH, DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, RAINBOW, ELF).

Kelly Johnson passed away on July 15, 2007 after a six-year battle with cancer of the spine. Along with Johnson, the classic lineup of GIRLSCHOOL included Kim McAuliffe (guitar), Enid Williams (bass) and Denise Dufort (drums). The band was an integral and major force in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) movement, beginning with the release of its debut album, "Demolition" (1980), and continuing with the follow-up efforts, "Hit 'n' Run" (1981) and "Screaming Blue Murder" (1982).

Ronnie James Dio died of stomach cancer on the morning of May 16, 2010 at the age of 67.

He was renowned throughout the world as one of the greatest and most influential vocalists in heavy metal history.

The singer, who was recording and touring with SABBATH offshoot HEAVEN & HELL prior to his illness, was diagnosed with stomach cancer in late 2009. He underwent chemotherapy and made what is now his final public appearance in April 2010 at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles.
