"Randy Rhoads Remembered: A Celebration Of A Legend"?
All Star Celebration to Randy Rhoads featuring a night of music written by Randy Rhoads who was the guitarist of Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot and who was killed in plane crash in the prime of his career. The show is a tribute to Randy Rhoads and will feature past and present members of bands Randy played with as well as superstar guitarists, friends and family of Randy.
>From the creators of "Bonzo Bash" (the celebration show for LED ZEPPELIN's John Bonham), Brian Tichy and Joe Sutton bring you yet another celebration for an icon!??Tichy and Sutton, in conjunction with Randy Rhoads' brother Kelle Rhoads; the Rhoads family; "Bonzo Bash" guitarist/former student of Randy's, Brent Woods; as well as one of Rhoads' dearest friends, rock bass legend Rudy Sarzo, have come together to put on the ultimate tribute celebration in honor of one of the the most influential and brightest stars the world of rock guitar has ever seen; Randy Rhoads, the legendary guitarist who revived Ozzy Osbourne's career with two iconic records!
Sadly, Randy's future was cut short on March 19, 1982 when he died in a plane crash. He was only 25 years old. His songwriting, solos, technique and tone on the albums "Blizzard Of Ozz" and "Diary Of A Madman" permanently placed him at the top of rock's most influential guitarists polls.??The idea to give Randy a night of honor came together within the hundreds of hours of "Bonzo Bash" preparation and phone conversations between Brian Tichy and Joe Sutton. The two would often talk about other musicians that had made a huge impact on them growing up. The name that would come up and excite them the most was always Randy Rhoads.
