My all time favorite guitarist.
He’s my favorite guitarist, too. Proud to say I was privileged to see him perform live with Ozzy on the Diary tour. He looked such the rock star playing guitar in front of the huge castle prop. Incredible how influential Rhoads is to so many people, considering his music catalog is brief due to his untimely and tragic passing.
He was my favorite too, especially back when I discovered him with Ozzy in the mid 80’s. Fantastic classical style with the fusion of metal is so awesome.
Such a terrific guitar player! And, at least from what I have read, he was also a really good guy. Died way too young. RIP Randy!
Legend. Oh what would have been….
I still wonder from time to time as to what Mr Rhodes would have been doing today if he was still with us. I don’t think for one minute he would have still been playing with Ozzy, except for the odd special surprise guest appearance here and there.
I’ve often read that he was going to swerve more into the classical realm. Who knows. He could’ve been the first version of what Ritchie Blackmore turned into, which the rock fans didn’t like. He and Ace were the reasons I picked up a guitar. Bloody genius and outer worldly talent.
I also read that he wanted to return to teaching, so maybe that is where the idea of going back to classical music came from?
I always envisioned him, either retiring from music altogether and opening his own music school, or taking a few years off to teach, and then returning to the rock scene with his own band.
It’s a shame we were all deprived the privilege of ever knowing what he could have contributed to the world.
