An all-star lineup featuring Bruce Kulick, Tom Morello, Vinny Appice, Tim "Ripper" Owens, Rudy Sarzo, George Lynch and others will pay respect to a late guitarist on the upcoming album 'Immortal Randy Rhoads: The Ultimate Tribute.'
One of rock's enduring mysteries unfolded on March 19, 1982, as 25-year-old Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads -- despite having a reported fear of flying -- perished in a fiery crash at Leesburg, Florida, after a joy ride in a Beechcraft Bonanza.
Randy Rhoads was a phenomenal musician whose skill reduced many budding guitarists to tears of frustration, but even he could be intimidated on occasion. According to Rhoads biographer Andrew Klein, one of those occasions included the first time he watched Eddie Van Halen perform.
Guitarist Randy Rhoads would be 56-years-old today (Dec. 6), had a tragic airplane accident not cut short the life of a man Ozzy Osbourne called a "saint" and an "angel.' Despite only giving fans less than ten years worth of music with Quiet Riot and then with Osbourne, Rhoads' impact will never slip quietly out of fan's memories.
Tonight's Feature Video deals with the sadder side of Rock 'n Roll. It was on this day in 1982, former Quiet Riot and then-current Ozzie guitarist Randy Rhoads was killed when a small plane he was riding in crashed.
