RANDY RHOADS – Before “The Blizzard”


Before he rocked the world with OZZY OSBOURNE, late guitar great Randy Rhoads blazed it up with QUIET RIOT. Check out Randy performing an extended guitar solo with QUIET RIOT – during a show at the Starwood on October 25, 1979.

“Blizzard of Ozz” would ultimately be released on September 20, 1980 in the UK and on March 27, 1981 in the United States. “Blizzard of Ozz”, considered one of heavy metal’s greatest albums, has sold over 6 million copies worldwide.

Was Randy the best ever? Well, one thing is for sure, his six string wizardry will never be forgotten.

Watch the extremely rare footage below!

    R.I.P Randy ———–K Man

  2. Almost certainly material stolen from DuBrow while his footage was in Vh-1’s possession. Nice to see it regardless, I guess.

  3. Nothingwas stolen from DuBrow. He owed everything to the Late Great Randy Rhoads, and Kelly Garny. If those guys didn’t let him in the band he would have been an unknown stew bum. Let’s not fool ourselves. Randy Rhoads is the real genius behind Quiey Riot, and The Ozzy Osbourne band, along with Bob Daisly of course!

  4. randy rhoads is the greatest guitarist to walk on earth and always be and is on of the greatest classical and blues guitarist you will ever hear R.I.P randall william rhoads .
