Randy Rhoads: Reflections Of A Guitar Icon, is a new documentary about legendary guitarist Randy Rhoads, best known for his work with Ozzy Osbourne, will be available on Video On Demand on May 6th.

Rhoads played on Osbourne’s records Blizzard Of Ozz (1980) and Diary Of A Madman, influenced many musicians, and is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time. His death, on March 19th, 1982, at age 25, was a huge shock to the world. Rhoads, and two others, were killed when the small plane they were flying in Leesburg, Florida struck Osbourne’s tour bus and then crashed into a mansion.

    Even after 40 years and thousands of listens, I still get goosebumps every single time I listen to “Over The Mountain!”

    Am I on an island alone who still wants physical product and buys dvds? I don’t know where Video on Demand is or how it works. I would like to own a Blu-ray/dvd of this documentary. I guess I’ll figure how to stream it, but I would rather have a physical copy.

      No, you’re not alone. I am sure many Rhoads fans, such as myself, would want a hard copy of this documentary.

      Same here, I don’t stream, download, upload, burn, rip, whatever else they call that sh-t! I’m old school all the way! I’ll take a physical copy (DVD/CD) any day over this streaming sh-t! I really hope this documentary gets released on DVD!

      Wow, stingray,

      You’re so lucky, to say I am completely envious, would be an understatement.

      If you want me to post the picture in the news section, you can email it to me at [email protected].
