One of the last true pioneers in music, Randy Rhoads past away.

Legendary OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Randy Rhoads' induction into Hollywood's RockWalk earlier today turned downright embarrassing when the bronze bust unveiled during the ceremony and later installed along the RockWalk posthumous inductee wall displayed the guitarist's often-misspelled last name as "Rhodes" (an error that has since apparently been corrected).


About 200 fans turned out to see the ceremony and hear from Ozzy Osbourne himself, who praised Rhoads' virtuoso brand of heavy metal guitar playing, according to the Associated Press. "I will never forget Randy, he was a small guy with giant talent," Osbourne said. "Not a day goes by that my family doesn't think about him. He will never die in our hearts."

Thanks for posting this Stagger...I can't believe it's been 22 years?! He's one of my guitar heros, along with SRV....what's with guitarists and flying?

The day that I learned to play anything that Randy did, even poorly (and it was), was pretty much the highlight of my "guitar experience". I've still got my Tribute album tucked away and carefully preserved.

Truly, truly innovative guitarist.
