The Third Annual Revolver Golden God Awards were held in Los Angeles this week.
Awards were pretty well dispersed among all the artists with only Avenged Sevenfold doubling up. Among veteran artists, Slash was named Riff Lord, Nikki Sixx won for Bassist, Gene Simmons was made a Golden God and Rush received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Performances were the main focus of the night with Slash and Alice Cooper taking on School's Out along with some Slash solo material, a medley of hits from Marilyn Manson with Taylor Momsen and Johnny Depp and Metallica's Creeping Death by members of Trivium, Slipknot and Machine Head.
The show will air on VH1 starting May 28.
