It’s Megadeth main man Dave Mustaine playing guitar with the San Diego Symphony on April 12, 2014. Words can not describe.
March 19, 1982 is a date a lot of metal heads still remember. It’s the day that Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist and former guitarist for Quiet Riot, Randy Rhoads lost his life. Ozzy’s tour bus driver, (and former pilot,) Andrew Aycock along with Randy and their makeup artist Rachel Youngblood were flying a small plane around the property where the band was staying. While trying to “buzz” the tour bus where the rest of the band where sleeping a wing clipped the bus and the plan crashed into the house on the property. All three were killed instantly and only could be identified by dental records. Randy was only 25 years old. On this anniversary of one metal’s most tragic deaths we remember Randy Rhoads. Enjoy the videos and crank up some early Ozzy in remembrance. This coming weekend we’ll pay our respects on the show by cranking up a bunch Ozzy from the Tribute album and we’ll hear from Zakk Wylde, Gus G, Rudy Sarzo and of course Ozzy himself.
