New Randy Rhoads doc debuts 5/6/22

If you haven’t checked out the classical composer’s reaction video at the top of the thread give it a watch i think you’ll enjoy it

That’s cool, I’ve seen his videos as a suggestion, but I’ve never watched any of his vids before.

It’s a strange drum pattern for 7/4, he’s right about the syncopated 2nd half of the pattern, not the traditional 7/4.

Ha, I was right 17/8, lol

Bob Daisly really was underrated and was the glue for both Randy and Jake E Lee in songwriting, helping them turn their guitar licks, into full songs (according to him).

I bought and read Daisley’s book primarily because i was interested in the Blizzard of Ozz stage of his career.

It was an interesting read. The guy has played with a lot of outstanding musicians, including Garry moore, ritchie blackmore, and of course randy.


Nice, was really curious about that book. I saw some of the interviews he did about it on YouTube, sounds really cool.

Ya now that I’ve finished it – it was the last one i read – I’m going to watch some of his YouTube interviews

One thing I learned from the doc was the DuBrow interview where he said that Randy was a rock and roll guitar player first, then later studied classical guitar. I thought he always had that classical background (growing up in a musical environment).

This is a picture from the Rudy Sarzo book, “Off the Rails” Randy, Rudy, Ozzy and Sharon. Randy is looking at the phonebook trying to line up a classical guitar lesson with a local teacher from whatever city they were in at the time.

I just watched this and here are my takeaways:

Quiet riot was just an epically terrible band. Kevin dubrow was a super tryhard, but the bands songs sucked and he sucked horribly as a frontman and couldn’t sing at all, and looked like a clown to boot. It’s a real testament to persistence that they ever got signed and got a couple of hits from metal health.

It’s really cool and endearing what a dedicated and relatively humble student of the instrument that rr was, and Eddie van Halen was portrayed as a real asshole.

It reminded me how fun the early metal band scene was. I was never in la at the time, but was around it in the 80s in Boston, and there was just so much optimism and youthful energy about it, even though a lot of the music was stupid, the effort and comraderie and rivalry of that time and newness of that era of metal was just really fun.

There really aren’t words to describe what an asshole the guy who crashed the plane was. It was almost like he was trying to kill everyone on board, and close calls only seemed to motivate him more.

He flew below the radar for quite a while.

I’ll leave now.

Randy’s mom pretty much told him as much, about the songs anyway, though I’m guessing in slightly less harsh terms lol.

When he brought her the Blizzard of Ozz tapes to listen to she said the songs were great and her approval meant the world to him.

For those who may not know, Randy’s mom was a life-long music teacher who owned her own school and played several instruments.

Randy was a teacher and held nothing back from his students. He couldn’t understand why eddie wouldn’t share his “secret” about how to keep a guitar in tune after using the whammy bar; it just seemed wrong to him.

Saw this at the mall today. Nice addition to the mantle above the fireplace.
