Randy Rhoads Posted on Friday, August 17th, 2012 at 1:43 pm. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple One of the best guitarists that ever lived. GTWilson Like Hendrix, you wonder where he would have taken guitar had he not died so young. CampyGuy ’81 was a good year for rockin’ out. I got to see Randy, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Neil Schon, Alex Lifeson, Eddie Van Halen, Frank Marino, and Ted Nugent play with their respective bands. Good times. My ears are still ringing… Robert DiNicolas Always nice to see Rhoads get the credit he deserves. People don’t realize that when they hear Crazy Train at nearly every sporting event today, Rhoads actually wrote all of those riffs during his time in Quiet Riot. Amazing for a guy that only had two rushed albums with Ozzy to really show off his talents.
