When did you first hear Randy Rhoads play guitar?

The first time I heard Randy play was on the Blizzard Of Ozz album. His riffing and shredding sounded so fresh and exciting and still does to this day.

What’s your favorite Randy Rhoads guitar solo?

I just love his overall playing on the song “Diary Of A Madman”- the classical playing, the riffing and the soloing are all top-notch. It makes you think about just how far he could have gone from there.

What do you think was his impact was on guitar playing?

He’s influenced everyone from John Sykes to Zakk Wylde and there are still young players discovering his music so his contribution is definitely immense.
