music news 11/07/2022

One of the greatest guitarists of all time, is getting the repesct he deserves in a new documentary. 

Randy Rhoads: Reflections of a Guitar Icon, follows the life and career of the late Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot electric guitarist, Randy Rhoads.

The documentary is currently out online but this September, it will be coming to DVD and Blu-ray.

“We’re still talking about Randy today because of his compositions," says Zakk Wylde, who would go on take Rhoads place alongside Ozzy Osbourne.

"The reason the music of Bach, Beethoven and Mozart is still being listened to and played at places like the Hollywood Bowl is because of what they wrote, not because it was fast or flashy." he explained to Guitar World.

"That’s why people are still talking about them hundreds of years later."  

“Randy’s relevance is the same as Bach’s, Beethoven’s or Mozart’s. It’s just a timeless thing – because it’s good.

Just like the Eagles, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, there’s no ‘best before date’. It’s timeless. And it’s pretty mind-blowing that Randy was so young and creating such incredibly mature stuff. God bless him."

Reflections of a Guitar Icon features never-before-seen footage and interviews from the likes of George Lynch, Eddie Van Halen and Gary Moore.

Narrated by  L.A. Guns guitarist Tracii Guns, the documentary is available for pre-order now before its release on September 23rd.
