Well, my computer crashed,... then, everything that could
have gone wrong did go wrong as I tried to replace it. Anyhow,... I've updated some things this month, listed in the what's
new,... section, as well as helping out with another Randy Rhoads site. Diary of an Axeman
- a new web site that a friend of mine (Matt) was putting together, that a few of us (Brandon,
Donnie and myself) helped work on, contribute to, etc. That's up and running as of now.
There were some things from this site transferred over to
the Axeman site, as well as some things that I never could include on this site, but we managed to stick 'em
in there,... some work in conjunction with each other and will probably all be compiled on to one main site in the future.
In Search of: The Missing Randy Rhoads Footage
In the course of compiling material for a Randy Rhoads
DVD, it seems that in 1999 when VH-1 was given 7 of the 3/4'' video masters of Quiet Riot,
including footage from the Starwood and the Whiskey from 1979, they were never returned. Any information
leading to the safe return of these videos would be appreciated. No questions asked. Please contact Kevin DuBrow
with any information, or, email me and I can put you in contact with Kevin regarding the missing videos. A reward
may be available.
Todd Seely at www.the-fuze.com let me know about some great Randy Rhoads related interviews that he's got at this site. Kelly
Garni, Bob Daisley, Don Airey, Lee Kerslake and Bernie
Tormé, were a few recent interviews that jumped out when I scaned through.
THE STORY OF THE OZZY OSBOURNE
BAND an unofficial publication
Emm Gryner's compact disc Girl Versions, has what I think
is one of the very best cover versions of the Bob Daisley, Randy Rhoads and Ozzy
classic: Crazy Train. She took an upbeat rock song and turned it into a weeping piano ballad. Girl Versions
was nominated at the 2001 Juno Awards for Best Pop
Everyone's seen Randy Rhoads with his famous
