Best Randy Rhoads Quotes
The Top Ten
1 I'd have to say that Mr. Crowley is my most memorable solo. Ozzy came in and said "it's crap - everything you're playing is crap". He made me really nervous, so I just played anything. When I came back to listen to it, he said it was great
2 To this day I don't have a guitar idol. I have people who are my favorites.
3 I've been playing about 18 years and I started to get a style when I started teaching. People wanted to learn everybody's licks, and at first it was okay. Then I thought 'Wait a minute, you've got to get your own style.'
4 The kids that we play for aren't interested in musical expertise. If I sat down and played some classical, besides those that were interested in the musical side of it, with most of the kids, it wouldn't impress them. They're headbangers.
5 I used to play constantly. In fact, I couldn't put it down. Now that I'm out there, I practice less than I did because I don't have the time. I can't sit down in a hotel room and practice.
6 Strange enough, one of the bass players (Dana Strum) in a local L.A. band auditioned for Ozzy on bass. They were looking for a guitar player. He was using this guy from L.A. for a while. Apparently Ozzy went through every player in L.A.
7 I wasn't a big Sabbath fan, to be honest. They were great at what they did. Obviously they did it well, and made it huge. I respect that. Let's not go into it, but I wasn't a big fan.
8 I never looked for auditions or gigs. I was stuck in a rut.
9 Both of my parents are music teachers. My mother owns the school that I taught in. My brothers and sisters are musicans.
10 She gave me the job and helped me get equipment, which a lot of parents don't do. Alot of my students had to go out and fight for it.
