Randy Rhoads is best known for his tour of duty with OZZY OSBOURNE and his band, then known as The Blizzard of Ozz. Once Rhoads had officially joined, the band headed into the studio to record their debut album, titled Blizzard of Ozz. Propelled by Rhoads’ neo-classical guitar work, the album was an instant hit with rock fans, particularly in the USA. They released two singles from the album: ‘Mr Crowley’ and the hit ‘Crazy Train’. Rhoads left us March 19th, 1982 in a tragic plane crash leaving a huge void in music. His legacy of brilliant music will live forever in the hearts of the people – He was a true hero and legend.
