OZZY OSBOURNE To Perform With 9-Year-Old Guitar Prodigy At BLIZZCON - Aug. 21, 2009

According to a posting on his official Facebook page, nine-year-old guitar prodigy Yuto Miyazawa will play with OZZY OSBOURNE at the closing concert of this year's BlizzCon on Saturday, August 22 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Miyazawa is expected to join Ozzy and the rest of his current band — including 28-year-old Greek guitarist Gus G. (FIREWIND) — to perform the Osbourne classic "Crazy Train" and possibly other tracks as well.

It is not presently clear who will sit behind the kit for OZZY OSBOURNE's performance at BlizzCon, since his longtime drummer, Mike Bordin, is currently on the road in Europe with the reunited FAITH NO MORE.

Miyazawa performed "Crazy Train" on the May 11, 2009 episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show". Yuto was then surprised when Ozzy himself was brought out to meet the boy.

Check out video footage of his appearance below.

Born February 21, 2000 in Tokyo, Japan, Yuto Miyazawa has been playing guitar since the ripe age of three. Although he has had a few guitar lessons, the bulk of his expertise comes from truly wanting to play… all the time. Generally, if he is not in school, he has a guitar in his hands. That love of guitar is quickly making Yuto the Internet's latest addiction, as his videos rack up views on YouTube and Vimeo, and his name is scattered across hundreds of forums and blogs.

Yuto's influences are fairly apparent, as he usually seen playing his custom Randy Rhoads-style, polka dot flying V guitar, which dwarfs him. Along with Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhoads, Yuto is influenced by Eric Clapton, KISS and METALLICA.

After playing multiple variety shows in Japan, Yuto made his first trip to the States in May 2008 when he played with a few big names at various clubs in Manhattan. In his short stint in the U.S. Yuto was a hot commodity. He played with Les Paul at The Iridium, two nights later he hopped onstage with GE Smith and Moonalice at Rebel, and finally he headed over to B.B King Blues Club & Grill to play with GALACTIC.

Yuto is now recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's youngest professional guitar player.
