Today 25 years ago...He died Rest in Peace Randy Rhoads

Well 25 years ago Randy died in a small plane accident, according to Rudy Sarzo in his book, Randy and Rachel were fighting the controls of the plane because Andrew Ay**** (the pilot) wanted to kill his wife that was standing in the bus door at the time, he thinks Randy saved him, Tommy alridge , Sharon and Ozzy that were sleeping in the bus...

Anyways, Randy Died and we lost one of the most promising guitar players in history, rest in peace Randy Rhoads.


check the crazy bending !!! FTW

Re: Today 25 years ago...He died Rest in Peace Randy Rhoads

Nice memorial thread! Randy was/is one of my four favorites. The thing about Randy, besides his monstrous playing, was the fact that I've never heard anyone who knew him say anything bad about him. They all say he was humble, down-to-earth and gracious.

I love these clips:

A great musician indeed... Many musicians lost this quality nowadays, IMHO

Re: Today 25 years ago...He died Rest in Peace Randy Rhoads

I dont know what happen on the plane, but I do know that ozzys 'Tribute' album is possibly one of the best bench marks of live guitar playing I have ever heard in my life.

Although his life was cut far too short, I'm personally greatful for what was documented of his amazing skills, most of all the tribute album

I still wonder what he would be playing like if he was alive today...

+1, this is the best mark of a great player IMO

R.I.P. Randy.

I'm sure him and Jimi are sharing licks up in heaven.

How time flies by. Wouldn't he have been 51? if he was alive today.

The more and more I play the more and more I realy appreciate RR's skill.

Sadly missed.

Just imagine what he would've developed into if he was still alive today.

The solos in Mr Crowley are probably my faves of all time.

Such a sad loss. Wish we could have seen him live a full life as a musician.
