Randy Rhoads Remembered. This is one event that is very close to home for me. I’ve had the privilege to attend and cover this event for a few years now, and it is always a “spiritual” musical experience for me. It is one of the highlights of the NAMM show week.

Randy Rhoads Remembered is a celebration of the brilliant and original Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads. Producers Brian Tichy and Joe Sutton, created this event in 2013 after agreeing Randy Rhoads surely deserved recognition for his musical impact. They are both enormous fans of Randy Rhoads. Randy’s brother Kelle Rhoads performs, and his sister Kathy Rhoads D’Argenzio shares her stories making this a very touching and personal experience for all involved.

This event, this experience, is all about the guitar players paying homage and respect to Randy. They all do this with beyond belief taste and style. It was evident to all that every single one of these master players, “Jedi’s” if you will give their soul and spirit to their, “Obi-wan /Yoda.”

There is no way for me to say any of the performances stood out among others. I will say that pretty much every single one of the guitar players did what Randy did and would be doing. Taking his songs, arrangements, parts, pieces, solos, to another level with style and taste that only a true Jedi would and or could without any Ego involved whatsoever. That aspect, absence of Ego, came through so powerfully, in that we all felt their soul expressing their love, admiration, and utmost respect for Randy. This is Not a wank fest, look at me shred ego fest. These guitar players kneel humbly at the Legacy of Randy Rhoads and give of their hearts in one of the most intense pure forms of expression I have ever experienced.

This is where they, “politely,” tell everyone to shut up. They wait until its quiet as it can be.  When silence falls, they give us one of a kind Spiritual experience.

The house band “The Madmen,” provided the foundation for all of this. They all bring it, lay it down, and give the palate for the guitarists to paint on the canvas. The Madmen consisted of; Rudy Sarzo, Phil Soussan, (bass), Brian Tichy, Jason Bittner, (drums), Steve Ferlazzo, Don Emory, (keyboards), Dewey Bragg, Chas West, (vocals).

I strongly suggest and encourage everyone to watch the YouTube videos of these performances. On the Randy Rhoads Remembered Facebook page, the Entire concert is on there. Experience all of it for yourself. You will feel the love, admiration and respect these players have for Randy. It will come through. Just like Randy had one of most intense meta-physical presence’s that existed, the Spirit and LOVE for him during this event will be there for you as you watch, listen and experience it.
