One big hurdle for a tribute act is whether or not the singer/band look like the artist being imitated.
In The Name Of - a Black Sabbath tribute band that includes Dave Hall of Cedar on Bass - has Ozzy Osbourne nailed. That's Eddie Janes of the Flint area on vocals in this new promo vid, both looking and sounding like the Oz-meister.
And really, once you've got the front man, who else do you need to get? Do you know what Tony Iommi looks like? Do you know anybody who knows what Geezer Butler looks like?
But Janes doesn't only look like Ozzy. He sounds like him. And the rest of the band - Hall, Paul Saylor on guitar and Keith Christian on drums - round out a very tight show band.
