Today would've been the late, great @randyrhoadsofficial 's 63rd birthday. I wouldn't have become a serious player if it wasn't for discovering those first two @ozzyosbourne records. "Blizzard of Ozz" blew me away because it was a combination of classically influenced riffs mixed with straight ahead rock and roll. The solo in "Mr. Crowley" still sounds as powerful as it was when it came out in 1980. The rest of the album from "I Don't Know" to "Revelation(Mother Earth" featured the playing of someone who was hungry, and on a mission to create something legendary.
A few years ago I created a medley of my favorite Randy solos with some help from my @etheriusband bandmate @zakialinj , who played drums and produced it.
I hope you enjoy! \m/
