New Randy Rhoads Book To Hit Shelves

You Tube

Though only on this planet a short time, the influence and legacy of Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads continue to grow. After much anticipation, a new biography about the guitar legend is set for release.

The book, written by Steven Rosen and Andrew Klein, published by Velocity Books and simply titled ‘Randy Rhoads,’ vividly documents Rhoads’ life and career. Written in the form of an oral history, it documents Randy’s remarkable life through those who knew him best, and is loaded with countless tales of the man, both emotional and poignant. It is also crammed full of hundreds of rare photographs and memorabilia. In other words, a veritable bonanza for Rhoads fans!

Before his tragic death at the age of 25, the man born Randall Williams Rhoads had already gained a loyal following and turned the heads of many a fellow guitarist during his time with Osbourne. His playing on songs like ‘ Crazy Train,’ ‘Mr. Crowley,’ and ‘Flying High Again,’ should have been the first chapter in a long story but, unfortunately we know the story was cut short. Much has been documented about Ozzy, but in general, little has been told about the guitar virtuoso.

It’s hard to believe it has been over thirty years since Randy was killed in a plane crash. Since that time, Marshall Amplifiers have created a custom amplifier that bears Randy’s name and signature sound, while Jackson Guitars have sold millions of Randy Rhoads model guitars. A testament to his influence. Time has done nothing to diminish interest in the man and his playing, and this book is looking to provide deeper insight into Randy, the man, the myth, the legend.
