do you know that we are approaching the anniversay of the death of legendary guitar player, RANDY RHODES. he was an inspiration to a generation of up and coming guitarists,,too bad most of them cannot make music the way randy did,,r. i. p. we need more role model guitarists like him...love to all...
Wow. Randy Rhodes, guitarist of Ozzy, was close to his grandparents here in San Bernardino. So he is buried there in MtView cemetery.
what a tune - the GREAT Randy Rhodes at his finest
really and you call yourself a wrestling tan lol. Randy Orton Ted Dibiase and Cody Rhodes...yummy lol
Why does WWE push ugly people like Randy Orton, AJ, Daniel Bryan & Roman Reigns?. I hope Cody Rhodes brings back his paper bags & bags them!
Randy Rhodes...he was studying classical guitar when he died...JUST imagine the music he would have added!!!
Part 7 if you don't know who randy Rhodes,Zaak wylde,slash,tom morello,Steve Vain or,Chris shiflett is please delete me now I no longer wish to see your face .
When I first saw the name Randy Rhodes I thought it was like a cross between Randy Orton & Cody Rhodes! ha! One of the greatest
Randy Rhodes. What a bloody great guitarist he was.
Randy Rhodes, cause he'll melt your face in 30 seconds...
That's pretty sweet tho. I love the way tribal tats look. Especially on the back like Randy's.
As my son and I were talking about the best band ever, we put together he best ever dead or alive. He disagreed but my list is this. 1. Vocals- Chris Cornell with alternates of Freddy Mercury and Johnny Cash. 2. Guitar- John Petrucci with alternates Darrell Abbot and Randy Rhodes. 3. Bass- Billy Sheheen with alternates of Bootsy Collins and Les Claypool . 4 Drums- Neal Pert with alternates of Michael Portnoy and Travis Barker.
yah neh. The only way that randy will win is with a help. Let's watch.
if it wasn't the reffree, eish bro. Randy is a coward just like brock.

Randy Rhodes is in my opinion best guitar player of all time, probably because he died, but I liked his work
If Randy Rhodes were still alive . I wonder what he would be doing now.
Along with Randy Rhodes just ONE of the KINGS !!?!
Randy Rhodes used to "change phrasing" the classical and blues scales.I mentioned early on, I was musical genius
Have to add David Gilmour , Alex Lifeson , Matthias Jabs and Steve Rothery ... from this list I choose Jimmy Page , Brian May and Randy Rhodes
Ok, Trivia question, Rules are NO GOOGLE is to be used. Name ONE song from Quiet Riot that Randy Rhodes had a hand in writing that actually made the American Billboards. No, Metal Health is not one of them.
no argument there, he can do it all... But for a brief moment in guitar players history Randy Rhodes ruled the planet
"With Randy - 2 Rock Legends! RIP Randy Rhodes Missed but never forgotten
AJ and Cody Rhodes are my number 1 favs, but I also like John Cena, Randy, The Bellas...you?
For those of you who would know I was thinking ...Would Randy Rhodes still be Ozzy Osbornes guitar player if he had not been tragically taken ?
Ozzy and Motley Crew! Diary of a Madman Shouting at the Devil. I believe Uriah Heep opened the show. Long live Randy Rhodes
& then I was turned on to Randy Rhodes this album Ozzy Osbourne-Mr Crowley-Tribute
Randy Rhodes was brilliant. So sad he's not in the world.
Motley Crüe opened for Ozzy w/ Randy Rhodes at the old Omni in Atlanta, GA in early 80′s. Hubby & I were there!
- Mr. Mars, Randy Rhodes, and Slash are my fave.
Calling Steve Clark, Randy Rhodes, Cliff Burton, Dimebag and all my other "heavenly" brothers, plz help out your 80's rock sister get thru tmrw's boy band field trip with all those screaming teen girls:) Amen
I lived on Randolph Rd in the 70's,lol get it,Nc,Charlotte? Randy Rhodes? flyin' high again!
Starting off with channeling van Halen and the ghost of randy Rhodes. \m/
" who did randy Rhodes play with before Ozzy Osbourne?
Randy Rhodes was a wicked excellent guitarist& he was the best. So sad he is not here anymore. The best.
“What's Randy Rhodes best song?” All the ones where he's playing guitar
what Randy Rhodes song displays his talent the best
The Cody Rhodes & Randy Orton feud back in late 2011 was brilliant.
KGOE- Destroyed their lineup. Thom Hartmann was moved to the 7 pm slot, and was replaced by Randy Rhodes.. An inferior substitution IMHO she is like the Drama Queen, Karel light version that still somehow earns an hour in the afternoon... Thom is the man. KGOE you screwed up! Guess I will now be listening to Myles in the morning on Kslug, Play music feels like a step backward somehow
I don't care what anybody says, Akira Takasaki could play as good as Randy Rhodes or Eddie Van Halen, on the song, "Crazy Nights" is on of the best Guitar solos EVER!!!
I had a kickass dream this morning. The last thing I remember before dozing off was listening to "Bark At The Moon" on my ipod. Anyways, I dreamt that I was in the studio with Ozzy's band while they were making/producing the album. The only thing was that Randy Rhodes never passed away, so I got to witness him playing everything that Jake E. Lee did for that album but better and it felt so real and idk, It was crazy being able to watch Randy work his magic. When he got to doing the solo part for "BatM" my jaw was just dropped in amazement the whole time. I just couldn't believe that even though it wasn't real I got to see Randy Rhodes play "BatM". I woke up with chills. It was awesome.
Great pic of ozzy and his band check out randy Rhodes far left really rare photo
Yesterday was Cliff Burton's Birthday...and I was laying here watching Metal Mania and they showed an old Ozzy video and it made wonder if Cliff Burton, Randy Rhodes, and Dime Bag Darrell was somewhere having a jam session...the things one thinks of at 4 in the morning...
Mad Racket is looking for a guitarist in the mold of Randy Rhodes and EVH. Kind of want to pick our spots and not play too much so if your already in a band we can work around that. If your interested in learning more or if you know someone that might fit the bill, private message me. Lots of opportunity to shine and have some fun!
I sort of feel bad for the local station, 910 AM, because they used to host the Rush Limbaugh show, but apparently they lost the broadcast and the station that hosts Rush also has Glenn Beck, Andy Dean, Tom Sullivan, and a few others. Who did the producers decide to air to replace the lost conservative lineup? Randy Rhodes. LOL I wish I was kidding. Heard a bit of her show this morning and she packs about as much intelligence into her program as one would normally find in a bowl of Cheerios.

INTERVIEW: Eddie Brnabic (for fans of Tony Iommi, Randy Rhodes, and Woody Weatherman)
Incredible guitar playing. Sorry all you Zakk Wylde fans, I like Zakk and Randy Rhodes was on another planet, but...
You cannot say you were influenced by the Southern California rock sound without saying you listened to the late great guitarist Randy Rhodes. You would have been 57 today. RIP. Every interview you read it always sticks out that he was into the guitar being apart of the rhythm section but was such an amazing lead player. Rare. That and he never put the guitar down. Always wanting to be better.

Kevin Dubrow and Randy Rhodes gonna call this Quiet Blizzard (-: Quiet Riot was formed by Randy Rhoads and bassist Kelly Garni (who would be replaced by Rudy Sarzo) in 1975, who recruited DuBrow and drummer Drew Forsyth. This lineup disbanded in 1980 when Rhoads went on to join Ozzy Osbourne's band, with Rhoads personally enlisting Greg Leon as his replacement. For a time the band's name was changed to DuBrow, which had a rotating lineup of members including Leon, Chuck Wright, Frankie Banali, and brothers Tony and Carlos Cavazo. After Rhoads' death in a plane crash in 1982 while on tour with Osbourne, DuBrow changed the name of the band back to Quiet Riot. Rudy Sarzo left Osbourne's band and rejoined Quiet Riot shortly before the release of Metal Health, which went to the top of the charts, making Quiet Riot the first metal band to achieve number one status on their (U.S. release) debut album. Their singles included *** on Feel the Noize" (originally written and recorded by English band Slade in 1973), . ...

OK, here are the rules. Test your memory and your love of live music by listing 50 artists or bands (or as many as you can remember) you've seen in concert. List the first 50 acts that come into your head. An act you saw at a festival and opening acts count, but only if you can't think of 50 other artists.

Back in Central Florida and happy to be so...more things seen and saw from Memorial Day weekend...Just two of many wonderful people during a long afternoon at Stardust and Park Ave.This is the land where rockers have come to an end, the airfield along Orange Blossom Trail where Randy Rhodes died in a plane crash.Anyone have photos of the Langston Hotel, great bar there, and I believe was the sight where Richard Manuel, of the Band, took his life?!?!?.A new face...the lovely classic face of my friend...and Bill Murray's too...and a face that say's, "Do you think this guy's been drinking beer all day?"...at Enrique's and Eric's, and where Cera and I danced to Prince in the parking lot...under a full moon too.oddly enough, I was wearing purple:)

Wouldn't it be nice if we could trade some out...Lady Gaga for Stevie Ray Vaughan. CC Deville for Randy Rhodes. Any of Spinal Tap's drummers for John Bonham. ;) And PLEASE take Coldplay...we'll take Hendrix back. Who would you trade?
Only thing is, I don't think any of my fav's will be there.Randy, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow

The best riffage I have ever heard in my life and still rings in my ear forever, I love Jake E Lee, he made two amazing & awesome albums, but Suicide Solution on Blizzard of Ozz by Randy Rhodes is an amazing opus that set a trend of riffs that changed the music world.
To all my high school classmates (we won't tell the year)--Randy Rhodes is trying to get class reunion together. I thought it might be neat if anyone who had a talent showed it off. Whether you play muscial instrument, write poetry or whatever--let me know if you like the idea. I know some of us didn't discover our talents until after high school, I'm still waiting to see what mine is.
some of my favorite players...Eric Clapton.Joe Bonamassa...Randy Rhodes...to name a few. Electric or acoustic?
Please tell Dan to learn DEE from Randy Rhodes from the early Ozzy tribute album. It's easy but will make him look great.
Randy Orton won the 2009 Royal Rumble after Triple H hit the pedigree on Rhodes & eliminated both members of Legacy.
"You're both wrong. Randy Rhodes played drums in Whitechapel, and Mitch Lucker was the D.J in Limp Bizkit."

Is there a better live song than Revelation (Mother Earth) by Ozzy Osbourne with Randy Rhodes on lead guitar?
“Mary Had a Little Lamb*” was the first song ever recorded on this day in 1877. Edison used his new invention, the phonograph, and sang the infamous nursery rhyme into history. That’s not the most important thing to happen in the world of music on this day, however. On December 6, 1956, Randy Rhodes shredded** his way out of his mother’s cooch/uterus and after a blistering solo on the umbilical cord, he received his first standing ovation*** from the doctor. Raised to be awesome, he and his brother formed a cover band at the age of 14. After a couple of years playing parties, the pair met frontman Kevin Dubrow, and together they became Quiet Riot. The band toured the west coast opening for acts including Van Halen. They were signed to the Japanese label CBS/Sony Records and recorded two albums, but they were only released in Japan. In 1979 Rhodes left Quiet Riot after an audition for a band ex-lead singer of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, was forming called Blizzard of Ozz. The story goes like this ...
Don Airey of Deep Purple was a amazing guy to interview. We talked about Gary Moore, Ronnie James Dio, Randy Rhodes, Ozzy Osbourne and so much more. Up on the site soon. He is a true encyclopedia of Rock.
OK Randy Rhodes is dead so Zakk ur lucky this is coming out my mouth but just think if Slash was President and Zakk was Vice President...OMG...IT WOULD BE EPIC!!! LOL.

I'm with u on Randy Rhodes,but what about Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, Steve Vai, Alex Lifeson, Toni Iommi etc etc?

Wish it was randy rhodes. . . . . it would be bigger
Today Clear Channel "killed the messenger"! KPOJ progressive radio 620 on the AM dial was replaced by Fox Sports, even though we already have sports on 4 other AM stations in Portland. We lost Carl Wolfson, Tom Hartmann, Randy Rhodes, Mike Malloy and Ed Schultz. Clear Channel has Bain Capital as one of the owners. They control a lot of the Portland market: Radio TV Billboards. IT might be time to find out why the FCC opened up the rules on monopoly ownership of media outlets. We just had a landmark election in this country and apparently the rich and corporations are trying to double down on the popular outcome. Just remember that prewar Germany as well as many other dictatorships also started to control the media to quash any public discussion of their draconian tactics used to brainwash the people. Even if you didn't like KPOJ, you should be concerned about control of the media.
Too much partisan cheerleading. Ed Shultz and Randy Rhodes to be exact.
jerhico did say that they played that version because the vid was a dedication to Randy Rhodes..
That really hurts my feelings! Oh, by the way, wait till you see the new phone I just bought!!
Most importantly I appreciate my family who has served: My great great uncle Graviel Alaniz WW I; Tio Vonche, Tio Chano, Tio Pepe, Tia Tencha and Uncle Russel WWII; My Dad Jose Alaniz Korea;My Uncle Jose Trevino (US Navy first nuke sub); My uncle Raynaldo and my Brother-in-law Randy Rhodes Vietnam; My Cousin Michael Iraq; My cousin Jerome War on Terror; and many others who like me served our nation during time of Peace.
Saw Night Ranger tonight wih my fiance, Sandy Schultz, at Downstream Casino in Joplin. Awesome show! These guys could sure teach all these new wanna-be rockers a thing or two! They did an incredible job and played to a crowd of adoring fans who sang along with thier greatest hits as well as "Crazy Train" and a couple of *** Yankees tunes. (Their lead guitarist had filled in with Ozzy's band after Randy Rhode's untimely demise and their bass player was a member of *** Yankees.) Terrific evening!
When I learn to play guitar, my idol us definately going to be Randy Rhodes. He's pretty much my favorite guitarist of all time :)

Stevie Ray Vaughan - dead. Cliff Burton - dead. Randy Rhodes - dead. Yet Maroon 5 continues to pollute the world.
Anyone else notice how all the best musicians end up dead? (EXAMPLE: Randy Rhodes, Freddie Mercury, Jimmi Hendrix, etc.)

I have found the answer to an old unanswered question!

Last story... my wife Ginger Lemon sang at Opry Land on the same bill as Tammy Wynette when she was 17 years old. Ginger loved C&W, and again I had to rededicate myself to playing country so I could start a band with her. I called Todd asking if he wanted to check us out and maybe play guitar with us. His response was "I'm in!" I said that he had never heard my wife sing, and he replied that if I thought she was good, it was fine with him. WOW! So annywayyy... Started to jam with all of us, but he insisted I play guitar and he play bass. His reason was he wanted to be challenged playing bass and that I was good enough of a guitarist that I would be fine playing C&W. Again rededicated myself to guitar to learn a different geners. And I still sucked at it during rehearsals. And Todd helped me all through it, showing the different country picking styles & chord progressions... he knew it all... and made sure he helped me to come kinda close to it. Ginger wanted me to mention this... When we first started Jam ...
how touching was this... RIP Randy Rhodes \../
Do you really need to put an Obama bumper sticker on a Prius??
Randy Rhodes' memorial will be November 10 outside Tulie from 2 to 6 . For more info go to his memorial page or contact April Cray Rhodes.
LOL i think he's cute...but i think John Cena, The Miz, Cody Rhodes, And Randy r all SEXY:)
Today is Greg Tribbett birthday. He is the guitarist and backing vocals for Mudvayne and Hellyea. He claims that Randy Rhodes is his biggest influence. It is also Tommy Thayer's birthday. Lead guitar for KISS. He was hired by Stanley and Simmons to do odd jobs like painting Stanley's house and cleaning Simmons gutters which led to a full time role in Kiss. What luck.
I had a great day yesterday with and
I miss I am excited to see you this weekend!!
I just got a Jackson Randy Rhodes, anybody in the Portland area got an amp i can have? It's torture to have a guitar to play and no amp to use... someone help!!! PLEASE!!!
Wish i could have lived through the 70s and 80s and just once witness the talent of Randy Rhodes... Im sorry Jimmy Hendrix but Randy was better
*** .. Just heard about Mitch Lucker... Why is it that the good die young? Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Randy Rhodes, Aaliyah, The Rev, Amy Wineh... well... The Rev. I joke on that last part but seriously. It's a little disheartening =/
I think gibson got the list wrong so I made my top ten metal guitarists of all time 10. Kerry king, 9. Angus young, 8. Dave Murry, Adrian smith, 7. Dimebag darrell, 6. Zakk Wylde, 5. slash, 4. Randy Rhodes, 3. ?, 2. ?, 1. ?
To all of the musicians (local or not) who are making music their career and always pushing to better themselves and connect with the audience.good luck and thank God for people like you. Without their perseverance and commitment, we would have never had great people like Eric Clapton, Eddie Van Halen, BB King, Randy Rhodes, Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Hedges (you get the point). Keep pushing. Just a little encouragement if your not feeling like it's worth all the work and headaches. If it's your dream...keep living it. This coming from a 46 year old musician that's very blessed to know some of the local talent around here and only wants success for all of you.
If you had to pick. Which guitarist is better Randy Rhodes or Eddie Van Halen
Ok as far as guitarist go Zakk Wylde and Tony Iommi were amazing but when it comes down to who was the best I have two words Randy Rhodes!

My buddy Matt posted a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughn, who died 22 years ago today. It got me thinking about musicians that we lost too soon. So here's the question: For you, who are the musicians that died in your lifetime, and in turn you feel the world most missed out on the music they would have still created? Mine would be (in no particular order): Stevie Ray Vaughn, John Lennon, Jeff Buckley, Bob Marley, Kurt Cobain, and Randy Rhodes.
Setting up my playlist for tomorrows flight, it shall include: Stevie Ray Vaughn, Lynyrd Sknyrd, Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly, And some Randy Rhodes sick *** guitar leads!
Happy Birthday Dimebag I bet you and Randy Rhodes are jammin with John Bonham up there in that super group in the sky!! Horns up for The Man \\m//
Best guitar song of all time? My vote is Stevie Ray Vaughan's Little Wing and Randy Rhodes on Crazy Train. Please discuss.
going to my babys house i cant wait to see her (Chelsea Nicole Cardwell) i love you baby and Randy Rhodes keep fighting man we all love you and are praying
Smh to people who think Tony Iommi is better than Randy Rhodes.
Best band ever of dead people what if Dio, Randy Rhodes, Dime bag Darrel, Cliff Burton, and ugh I can't think of any dead metal drummers but as soon as I figure it out I will finally complete the best band ever
Well for me it would have to be 3 Jimi Hendrix - Stevie Ray Vaughn - and this guy Randy Rhodes!
I'm struggling with Randy Rhodes vs Tony Iommi as to whom is the top axe man on my board. Would be thrilled with either.
I got this video from the Randy Rhodes website. After Hours playing Crazy Train.
Madison Kiss (mom wanted Madison, dad wanted Kiss because of KISS. Randi by dad for Randy Rhodes and Mae, for gma Mae.
More Night Ranger trivia: lead guitarist replaced Randy Rhodes in Ozzy's band right after Rhodes died. Playing Crazy Train right now.
just sitting here doing some homework on the band "Ratt" and would you beleive when they hired Carlos Cavazo who was formerly in the band "Quiet Riot" he beat out not only Zakk Wylde of "Ozzy and BLS" but George Lynch of "Dokken" too. George also lost a audition to be lead guitarist for "Ozzy" back in 1979 to "Randy Rhodes". George also tried out in 82 to replaces brad gillis of "Ozzy" and got the spot but was replaced by Jake Lee before he could even plug in for a show *** George Lynch is a awesome guitarist but what some tough luck
Have a Nothing can go wrong. Unless you count Buddy Holly, Glenn Miller, Otis Redding Lynyrd Skynyrd, Randy Rhodes...
Randy Rhodes would have been 55 years old today. 28818

other than my son, Zack Sutton ;), guess I'd say...ummm, Randy Rhodes or Eddie Van Halen
Another killer day! Wake up, listening to 80's and 90's rock and metal! Shower, grub a little, get some more shred practice in with the ESP this time; Cascading scales and modes. Add some more depth to my style. Studying some old Randy Rhodes action for reference. Until my start date at my new job, my life is my own. Spend as much time as I can with my kids and perfect my arts. Life really gets no better than this. Well, not yet.. Also in the news, I’m including this in my status in respect for my ex wife’s father, as well as Dan Stratton. We stand with you -win or lose- with your fight. And I look forward to seeing you again, my brother. Strength and honor. Cata Lina Corinne Davis May I ask a personal favor. and this is really personal for my family right now.only some of you will do it, and I know who you possibly are. If you know someone who fought a battle with cancer and passed away, or someone who is still fighting, (or someone in remission)... please add this to your status for 1 hour as a ma ...
My wife thought that Randy Rhodes just died omg I blame it on her Debbie Gibson lol
watched the M3 festival live this weekend what a disappointment. Started with Great White with no Jack Russell, then Warrant minus Jani lang, the Quiet Riot with no Kevin Dubrow the only original member on stage being the Drummer Frankie Banalli? LA Guns had singer Phil Lewis form the "classic lineup" but no sign of founding member Tracii Guns? Night ranger was pretty good. But then Skid row without Sebastian Bach? Then the last two acts which were what I was looking forward too, (since they didnt show Dokken playing) the second last act Queensryche, had a solid set but then got to the encore and Geoff Tate lipsynchs to Empire? *** Closing Band was Ratt, all original members, minus Robin Crosby RIP who was replaced by Carlos Cavazo, giving Ratt the same number of original Quiet Riot members as Quiet Riot? (yes I know Randy Rhodes was technically the original guitarist for Quiet Riot but Carlos was their "classic lineup" guitarist when they made it big) Stephen Pearcy coudlnt remember the words to ...
Mastodon's Brann Dailor's childhood hero was Randy Rhodes, but was so bad at guitar he switched to drums.
And a rant...I figured out years ago that Ted Nugent was an egotistical blowhard, (long before he became a member of the celebrity, political intelligencia.) I was reading an article in "Guitar World" where they asked Mr. Nugent to rate famous guitarists. Firstly, he ranked himself at the top. Please. Then he had the hubris to state that Jimmy Page "could" have been "as good as (Jeff) Beck, but fell flat on his stoned face." Seriously, Ted? Much props to Jeff Beck, but are you telling me you are a better guitarist than James Patrick Page? Well recently I read a recent "Rolling Stone" article where they had true guitar greats rank the top 100. I don't necessarily agree with all the rankings, but there were the ones you expect to be in such a list: Buddy Guy, Ry Cooder, Randy Rhodes, Chet Atkins, Muddy Waters, etc. The top three spots went to Mr. Jimmy Hendrix, Mr. Eric Clapton, and Mr. Jimmy Page. Guess who didn't make the list at all. I guess what I'm trying to say is.Suck it Ted.
If you nipped up to heaven & got John Bonham,John entwistle,Randy Rhodes & Bon Scott that would be quite a good band :-)
Sitting here listening to YouTube and my coworkers and started discussing guitarists, and who's better than who. Some definite difference in opinions here. So, what about y'all? Who is the best? Some names kicked around were: Carlos Santana, Slash, Jimmi Hendrix, Randy Rhodes, Kirk Hammett, among others.
This is by far my favorite Slow Rock Song. Dedicated to the late Randy Rhodes. R.I.P. Where-ever he may be.
Now that they have this technology. They need to bring back. John Lennon, Elvis Presley. Jimi Hendrix. Randy Rhodes. Bob Marley& Kurt Cobain
Joe Satriani...u want some guitar.Joe Satriani...Randy Rhodes, Peter Frampton, Eric Clapton.let me show u my shocked face..."do whhat?"
