    Approximately 9:00 a.m. on the morning of March 19th, Andrew Aycock took Rachel Youngblood and Randy Rhoads up for a few minutes. During this trip the plane began to fly low to the ground, at times below tree level, and "buzzed" the bands tour bus three times. On the fourth pass (banking to the left in a south-west direction) the planes left wing struck the left side of the bands tour bus (parked facing east) puncturing it in two places approximately half way down on the right side of the bus. The plane, with the exception of the left wing, was thrown over the bus, hit a nearby pine tree, severing it approximately 10 feet up from the bottom, before it crashed into the garage on the west side of the home owned by Jerry Calhoun. The plane was an estimated 10 feet off the ground traveling at approximately 120 - 150 knots during impact. The house was almost immediately engulfed in flames and destroyed by the crash and ensuing fire, as was the garage and the two vehicles inside, an Oldsmobile and a Ford Granada. Jesse Herndon, who was inside the house during the impact, escaped with no injuries. The largest piece of the plane that was left was a wing section about 6 to 7 feet long. The very wing that caught the side of the tour bus, was deposited just to the north of the bus. The severed pine tree stood between the bus and the house.

    I got that from this site if you want to read his entire Biography. Randy Rhoads Tribute Is a really good web site. Hardly a day goes by when I dont' sing and Ozzy and Randy Tune in my head. As a musican I can think of no other influence that has impacted me more than Randy, Hearing Eddie made me want to play, hearing Randy made me want to write and reach that next level. He never did drugs and rarely drank even when he was with Ozzy, which I imagine was not easy. And he Loved music above all else, he was gonna turn away from the Rock life style to get a degree, that says alot about him. I hope one day I can be half the musican and person Randy Rhoads was, he will be missed. I don't mean to sound dramatic or anything, just telling the truth.

    Sorry about spelling his name wrong one of my best friends last name is Rhodes. One of those Variations that slips my mind every now and then.

    RIP Randy. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    Such a talent.

    Nobody inspired me to play more than Ed, but Randy really opened up my eyes to the realm of possibilities. Amazing player.

    WE love you randy, forever, and always from Mean_Street

    ps, i'm naming my future son after Randy because i admit that he is my #1 Guitarist this week (or forever?) if you could talk to me about Randy right now in real life i'd say a lot.

    heres an article on The Day The Music Died



    heres what it says:

    Leesburg - Randy Rhoads played a major part in the bizarre creative impulses of the Ozzy Osbourne rock group. The widely-acclaimed British guitarist, who died yesterday morning in a fiery plane crash here, was called a "musician’s musician" in Record Magazine’s March issue. Rhoads, 25, who lived in Burbank, Calif., joined the Osbourne group without even auditioning, group leader Osbourne is quoted as saying. "He was only tuning up his guitar when I said, ‘You’ve got the gig. Phenomenal!" Osbourne said, "I have a feeling about people. You could be the greatest player in the world, but if you haven’t got the feeling that I want to get, I don’t go for it. Randy (had) presence." Rhoads and two other people - Andrew Aycock, 36, of Leesburg, the plane’s pilot, and a hairdresser for the group, Rachel Youngblood, 58, of Los Angeles - were killed when the Beechcraft Bonanza they were in clipped the Osbourne tour bus, splintered a pine tree and slammed in the side of a house at Flying Baron Estates, three miles west of the city on a private airfield. Witnesses said the plane circled the airport low three times and on the third pass fell below the tree line and hit the bus. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed this weekend to determine whether the victims were killed on impact or burned to death in the resulting fire. The plush traveling bus, equipped with stereo, television and video games, received minor damage. Several broken side windows and a punctured side panel were evidence of the disaster. The two story house owned by Voncile Calhoun is considered to be a total loss. The roof, upper bedrooms and garage were completely gutted by fire. Firefighters on the scene said there was probably structural damage to the concrete block walls of the home. Two cars, an Oldsmobile and a Ford Granada, were also destroyed when the plane hit the wall and splashed gasoline over the area. The group was in the Central Florida area to play at the Tangerine Bowl’s annual event, Rock Superbowl XIV, scheduled to begin Saturday morning at 11 a.m. with such groups as Foreigner, Bryan Adams and UFO. Osbourne canceled the group’s appearance Friday evening a spokesman for the promoters, Beachclub Productions, said, adding that anyone with tickets may get a refund if they wished, though the show will go on as scheduled. At the crash site, one victim was found outside the window of the garage, just below where the plane struck the wall, while the other two were inside, one beside and one atop the burned out automobiles. Fiberglass from the explosive impact of the plane was scattered over more than an acre, with no part of the plane larger than a telephone except the one crumpled wing which hit the bus. Four persons in the bus, including John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne himself, plus two more in the house, escaped the flames, and later the group found rooms at Leesburg’s Hilco Inn, remaining in seclusion. Sheriff’s Department spokesman said they were shaken and upset. Rhoads was voted Best New Guitarist by Guitar Player magazine poll and chosen as England’s Best Heavy Metal Guitarist for 1981 by Sounds magazine. Rhoads and another band member, Rudy Sarzo, a bass player, were also veterans of Quiet Riot, a group which had two successful albums in Japan, but couldn’t get an American contract. Osbourne is well known for his bizarre stage antics and special effects; such as biting the heads from bats and doves and "hanging" a man on stage until he is "dead". Osbourne has been called "a true geek in a world of make-believe sickies...a hulking, mugging, leering parody of a devil worshiper" in magazine articles. However, beneath his gross exterior lies some creative talent, and he and Rhoads put together two cult albums, "The Blizzard of Ozz" and "Diary of a Madman." plus another that is scheduled to be released soon. Rhoads was instrumental in writing and arranging many of the album’s songs with Osbourne and others. Osbourne himself is a veteran Heavy-Metal performer. He was previously with Black Sabbath, with whom he broke two years ago. While Sheriff’s Department investigators work and a Federal Aviation Authority representative flew in to determine the cause of the crash, fans may well be contemplating the irony of one of Rhoads' and Osbourne’s last songs, "Flying high Again." and it’s lyrics:

    "Got a crazy feeling I don’t understand - Gotta get away from here

    Feeling like I shoulda kept my feet on the ground - Waiting for the sun to appear."

    MS - We already told you to NOT post that damn autopsy report on here. If you have some morbid curiousity to know the the gruesome details of Randy's remains, that's your parents' problem. I don't want to see a link to anything having to do with that anymore, people are bothered by it. Are we clear on that?
