R.I.P. RANDY RHOADS 31 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF HIS PASSING
Demented Magazine would like to take a minute to pay our respects to the Late Great Randy Rhoads. Randy was killed in a plane crash on March 19, 1982, he was only 25 years old. Randy wrote his own page in music history, as one of the best guitarist in the Rock/Metal Genre. He gained worldwide fame with his unique sound blending his classical music skills with heavy metal. He is best known for his work with Ozzy Osbourne, who he was on tour with at the time of his death. He is one of the original founders of the band Quiet Riot, along with his friend Kelly Garni. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, close friends and scores of fans. Randy's legacy left a lifelong impact on musicians today. He changed the course of Metal Music and set the bar for those who succeeded him. RIP RR, See you on the other side Brother." \,,/ \,,/
