Ozzy Osbourne & Randy Rhoads Crazy Train Live After Hours

Rhoads was born on December 6, 1956 at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, California. He was the youngest of three children. His older brother, Doug, is a drummer and vocalist who also arrange classical compisitions, who goes by the name of Kelle Rhoads. His sister’s name is Kathy. When Randy was 17 months old, his father, William Arthur Rhoads, left his mother, but he still stayed in touch with Randy even up until his sons death. Delores Rhoads, and the three children. Mrs. Rhoads has owned and operated the Musonia School of Music in North Hollywood, California since 1949. Rhoads started playing guitar at age 7 on his grandfather’s old Gibson “Army-Navy” classical acoustic guitar. According to Rhoads’s mother, he learned to play folk guitar, which was a popular way to learn guitar at the time, although he did not take lessons for very long. Rhoads was always evolving toward a hard rock/metal lead guitar style, but he was heavily influenced by classical music as well. This can be heard on Ozzy Osbourne tracks like “Dee” (an instrumental he named for his mother Delores), “Mr. Crowley”, “Diary of a Madman”, “You Can’t Kill Rock And Roll”, “Crazy Train” and “Revelation (Mother Earth)”. [edit] Quiet Riot In his early years Rhoads was in a short-lived band called The Whore. By the time Rhoads was 14, he was in a band called Violet Fox (after his mother’s middle name, Violet). Rhoads taught his best friend Kelly Garni how to play bass, and together they formed Quiet Riot when

  1. listen and learn from these masters of ancient and never to be forgotten metal,blues, rock, classical…they took it all and produced never to be forgotten genius. I learnt to play these songs many years ago and they sound just as good today alongside my Hendrix, Zappa, Vai, Satriani, Carcass, Morbid Angel, IronMaiden, Mozart, Joe Pass, etc, etc. Dont judge lest ye be judged…just listen….and remember him for the great stuff he left us. Ozzy is one of the nicest guys I ever met too!

  2. @underland Well your pompous contrasting the “uneducated” majority of RR’ fans to yourself, is really an eloquent fact. Mentioning the UNEDUCATED, I believe your immediate opting for the low-base profanity and insults in a discussion which completely lacks any hostility is an argument for the relevance of your “educated” statement. BTW simple YouTube view count and Search Engine results differentials between Crazy Train and any of the songs you mentioned… something something…

  3. @nyarlathotep989 because those people didn’t die after their 2nd album moron. I think “flying high again” is more notable anyway. Dumb conversation. This dude was a machine,maybe for the uneducated Randy was known for crazy train but anyone whose opinion I care about knows “I Don’t Know, revelation Mother Earth and Goodbye to Romance” like the back of their hand.

  4. @rjkahlon i dont imply that it IS his only good song. I say it is the only song people know to value. If you ask anyone aware of RR work what song first comes to their mind when Randy Rhoads is mentioned – what ll be the answer? That wouldn’t be the case with Kirk Hammett, Slash, Hendrix, Malmsteen and/or plethora of other remarkable guitarists.

  5. @nyarlathotep989 don’t forget his great composition called ”Dee” dedicated to his mother.
    he was awesome also
    >umad?

  6. @nyarlathotep989 You obviously have little knowledge of the matter if you think Randy’s only notable work is Crazy Train. Other famous works include Mr. Crowley, Over the Mountain, Flying High Again, Diary of a Mad Man, Tonight, etc. Randy was big before he died and would have been just as big a legend had he lived.

  7. dear god, put me vack to the 18970s so that i can live the rock era, before justin bieberstien is played on the loud speakers in my misic class at school

  8. Oh boy, here we go again. A chronic case of dead celebrity bias syndrome. Whenever Mr. Rhoads is mentioned or rated as “ONE OF THE GREATEST EVURRR!!!!”, it is followed by a reference to the Good Olde Crazy Train. Respect to RR, but do you know any other remarkable works of his? The same’s with Cliff Burton, Oysten Aarseth, Kurt Cobain asf. No matter how great musicians they were, the implausible legendarity brought about by their demise is tenfold augmented.

  9. @SteveChandlerFTW im a guitrist…and to be honest i didnt find this awesome, i found this to be beyoND EVERYTHING awesome IN THE WORLD!! ppl should create a new word for randy to symbolize his influence in the metal world.

  10. Yep Ozzy had a bad day but Randy saved it withh that awesome guitar playing. But its ok heavy metal its not perfect and thats the way it should be
