    RANDY CASTILLO LOSES BATTLE WITH CANCER:
    I have just had an e-mail sent to me from a good friend in LA, with some very sad news for the hard rock world.
    It appears that superstar drummer Randy Castillo has lost his long battle with cancer this afternoon.
    Randy of course was most recently with Motley Crue, but spent many years with Ozzy Osbourne.
    My personal best regards go out to all Randy's family and friends and may he rest in peace.

    WOW!!! HOLYFUCKINGFUCK!!! What kind of Twilight Zone am I living in? What kind of Viagra-Testosterone mix are these 50 year old + guys on? I never thought I'd hear another Dave and Eddie album again. If I did, I thought it would be a mid-paced affair like the Rolling Stones or later day AC/DC. After the TATTOO single I was ready for a poppy album from old guys, with a few nods to harder rock (She's A Woman and Bullethead) and I would have been happy with that.

    I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE GETTING A FULL-THROTTLE HARD ROCK, HEAVY METAL, BALLS TO THE WALL, FUCKING VAN HALEN THRASH METAL ALBUM!!!

    RANDY CASTILLO: December 18, 1960 – March 26th, 2002 - Mar. 27, 2002

    Former OZZY OSBOURNE/MOTLEY CRUE drummer Randy Castillo reportedly passed away yesterday due to complications stemming from his long-running battle with cancer. Castillo was 41 years old.

    MOTLEY CRUE bassist Nikki Sixx posted the following message at www.motley.com following Randy's death: “You used to joke around with me all the time, saying that we had 'dented halo's'. I'll miss you my friend, and I love you.”

    Prior to his passing, Castillo was reportedly working with ex-ALICE IN CHAINS bassist Mike Inez and an undisclosed guitarist in a new project, which was in the process of writing music and checking out prospective singers.

    It was only this past November that Castillo proclaimed himself to be “100% back, strong & kicking” in an interview posted at CRUE's official web site. The drummer seemed to be particularly excited about the new band and called the experience of working with Inez “very refreshing and satisfying”.

    Rest in peace, Randy. You will be missed

    Reminds me of George Harrison, sadly.

    This is really sad...
    I've seen him live a couple of times with Ozzy, and he was always was one of my favourite drummers. I remember when the line-up with Randy Castillo, Zakk and Geezer played the old Black Sabbath songs, they sounded much more powerfull due to Randy's drumming.
    I had this fantastic tape of their concert in Russia in the late 80's, does anybody remember this? My mum accidentally taped some cheesy movie over it.. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    That is sad. I wondered how he was doing. I can't say that I was ever a big fan, but that's not the news I had hoped to hear.
    That “100% back, strong & kicking” and then he dies makes me think of Eddie. Not encouraging at all. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    This is terrible. He was young too, 41. He played on most of my favorite Ozzy songs, No More Tears is my favorite Ozzy album.

    I know when I saw Ozzy live a few weeks ago, I remember thinking that I wish that Ozzy still had Randy on drums.

    There is interview footage with him with Motley on their DVD, he seemed like a really good guy in it. R.I.P. Randy. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]
