Randy Rhoads was born on December 6th, 1956, in California. On March 19th in 1982, while on tour with Ozzy Osbourne, Randy Rhoads passed away in a plane accident, in Florida. Randy Rhoads was only 25 years old, on the day of his death. As a co-founder of the legendary Quiet Riot and lead guitarist and songwriter for the super Ozzy Osbourne, Randy Rhoads certainly left his mark on the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal world like none other.

Randy Rhoads will always be most remembered for his works with Ozzy Osbourne and the two Ozzy studio albums: Blizzard Of Ozz (1980) and Diary Of A Madman (1981). Both of these albums are sacred, within the Metal world, in my Metal opinion. I could never, ever grow tired of these two amazing Ozzy albums; amazing due to the guitar wizardry of Randy Rhoads!

I’ve now lived to be fifty, which is obviously double the lifetime of Randy Rhoads. Seems unreal when I put it into that context. Life is a gift and is never to be taken for granted. Life is to be cherished and celebrated. Today I celebrate the iconic music that Randy Rhoads has left us all to enjoy. Rest in peace, Randy Rhoads. – Stone

  1. I really can’t get my head around being older than Rhodes, Hendrix, Cobaim etc.

    I always look at them like adults but I forever feel about 16.
