Randy Rhoads is best known for his tour of duty with Ozzy Osbourne and his band, then known as The Blizzard of Ozz. Once Rhoads had officially joined, the band headed into the studio to record their debut album, titled Blizzard of Ozz. Propelled by Rhoads’ neo-classical guitar work, the album was an instant hit with rock fans, particularly in the USA. They released two singles from the album: Mr. Crowley and the hit Crazy Train. Rhoads left us March 19th, 1982 in a tragic plane crash leaving us a huge void in music. His legacy of brilliant music will live forever in the hearts of the people – He was a true hero and legend.

Please join us December 4th through December 6th and pay respects to Randy Rhoads and his family for his birthday at the:

  1. Wish I could be there in person, but I’ll be there in spirit, just like I know Randy’s spirit is always with us. I still get goose bumps every time I listen to Randy’s music, one of, if not the greatest guitarist of all time, another legend in heaven, R.I.P. Randy, we’ll never forget you.

    1. Every time I hear Randy’s solo on “Over The Mountain”, swear no BS, my jaw still drops to the floor! 😉

  2. Randy was a one of a kind genius. I thought I was getting good on guitar until I heard Randy play and I knew right then I had a LOOOOOOONG way to go. DIARY OF A MADMAN is in my top five albums of all time and always will be. From the first song, OVER THE MOUNTAIN, to the title track and everything in between, it’s a lesson in greatness. The first Ozzy/Randy song I learned to play on guitar was LITTLE DOLLS. I still have that album and BLIZZARD OF OZZ on vinyl.

  3. Since he is no longer with us I always just use the phrase “Simply the Best”

    One can only ever wonder what magic Randy would have brought to the musical world, classical,Rock,Metal,teaching, he was so great!!!!

    Anybody else out there still listen to Quiet Riot “The Randy Rhoads Years” ? Simply amazing. I feel very blessed to have gotten to see him live with Ozzy twice before his death!!

  4. In my opinion, Randy was, and still is, the greatest guitar player. His solos were amazing. While they were technical, they were mini songs within the title track song. One could hum his guitar solos because they were so melodic and memorable. Yes, Mark is lucky to have seen Randy twice. I saw him once, with Ozzy on the Diary tour, and he was great. With that castle stage backdrop and his stage outfit, Randy looked like that true guitar hero/rock star we all know he was.

    1. Rattlehead and Dana,

      Yes 1981 at the Day at the Green in Oakland Ca. and then at the Cow Palace, that little dude rocked!!!

    2. Awesome Mark,

      He might have been small in stature and frame, but he was mighty force. There has never, and I don’t think there ever will be, another Randy Rhoads.

      D 🙂
