About Randy Rhoads: How Plane Crash Shook the Metal World

Published

on

Who was Randy Rhoads?

The late American guitarist Randall William Rhoads, was born in Santa Monica, California USA, on 6 December 1956, meaning that Sagittarius was his zodiac sign. He’s probably remembered best for having been a co-founder and the guitarist of the American heavy metal band Quiet Riot, while he also played the guitar and co-wrote the songs on famous British singer-songwriter John Michael ‘Ozzy’ Osbourne’s first two albums “Blizzard of Ozz” and “Diary of a Madman”, released in 1980 and 1981, respectively.

Education and early life

Randy was raised alongside his two older siblings in Santa Monica, solely by their mother Delores Violet Rhoads, as their father William Arthur Rhoads abandoned the family when Randy was less than two years old; both William and Delores were music teachers, thus Randy’s interest in music from a very early age. His brother Kelle was also a musician.

The siblings grew up without owning a stereo, and thus entertained themselves by creating their own music; Randy’s favorite bands while growing up were The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. He was eight when Scott Shelly began teaching him rock guitar, however, less than a year later, Scott approached Randy’s mother admitting that he was no longer able to teach him, as Randy’s knowledge of the guitar had surpassed his own.

He studied at Jon Muir Middle School, and there met his future bandmate and best friend American hard rock musician and photographer Kelly Garni; they then formed their first band The Whore, thus launching their career as musicians.

Randy didn’t share many details about his education, but it’s known that he matriculated from Burbank High School in 1974.

Randy’s career and band Quiet Riot

The Whore rehearsed at the Hollywood nightspot Rodney Bingenheimer’s English Disco, and performed at backyard parties in Los Aneles, California in the mid-‘70s.

Randy, Kelly and Randy’s brother Kelle then formed the cover band Violet Fox, but which dissolved five months later; Randy then formed several bands which disbanded in less than two months, including Mildred Pierce and The Katzenjammer Kids. He knew what kind of musician he wanted to be, after watching American rock ‘n’ roll singer Alice Cooper perform live.

Randy and Kelly were 16 when they formed their band Little Women, and then renamed it to Quiet Riot when they were 18, after the band was joined by drummer Drew Forsyth and vocalist Kevin DuBrow. Randy didn’t initially like Kevin, as he’d envisioned a different frontman for their band, someone similar to David Bowie or Alice Cooper, however, Kevin performed well and was loved by the audience.

Quiet Riot signed with Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) in 1977, and their first two albums “Quiet Riot” and “Quiet Riot II” were released only in Japan, and never in the US. Kelly was fired from the band in 1978, after he’d got into a fistfight with Randy and threatened to kill Kevin – he was replaced by Rudy Sarzo.

Disappointed by not being able to sign a US recording deal, Randy quit Quiet Riot and became a guitarist in Ozzy Osbourne’s band; Quiet Riot then disbanded in 1980, but began playing again in 1982. Randy didn’t initially want to attend the audition for Ozzy Osbourne’s band, and had to be convinced by American musician Dana Strum; Ozzy was drunk when Randy performed for him, and he was instantly hired.

Ozzy and Randy then founded their band The Blizzard of Ozz, and released their eponymous debut album on 12 September 1980, which spawned hits “Crazy Train” and “Mr. Crowley”. Their second album “Diary of a Madman” was released in October 1981, and the same year saw Rudy Sarzo (previously the drummer of Quiet Riot) join the band.

Although Randy and Ozzy were good friends, Randy was determined to leave The Blizzard of Ozz once his contract had expired, because Ozzy’s drug and alcohol addiction had made it difficult for the band members to tour and perform live; he was once so drunk that he fired the entire band, but had no memory of it after sobering up.

Randy was still a member of The Blizzard of Ozz at the time of his death.

Love life and relationships

Randy rarely spoke about his love life in public, but there are still two girls whom he dated that his fans know about.

He was once in a relationship with American singer and model Jodi Vigier; it’s believed that they were together for two years before breaking up in 1980.

Randy was then in a relationship with American singer, actress and model Jo Jo Laine, and they were together at the time of his death; he didn’t marry, and had no children.

There are rumors circulating the internet claiming that Randy had an affair with American TV personality Sharon Osbourne in 1981, a year before she married Ozzy.

Interesting facts and hobbies

Randy was 5ft 7ins (1.7m) tall, and weighed only 110lbs (48kgs).

He was a collector of toy trains, and travelled around England searching for toy trains the first time he arrived there.

Randy wasn’t a fan of partying, rarely drank alcohol – his favorite drink was Anisette – and didn’t use drugs, but was a heavy smoker.

Randy’s brother Kelle described him as a ‘fairly devout Lutheran’.

His mother died at the age of 95 on 11 November 2015.

Death and wealth

Randy’s final performance was at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum on 18 March 1982; he died the next day, aged 25, when the bus driver and private pilot Andrew Aycock crashed a single-engine Beechcraft F35, with Randy and make-up artist Rachel Youngblood on board. Andrew played with the plane, trying to fly as close as possible to their bus which was on the airstrip, wanting to wake up drummer Tommy Aldridge who was sleeping in it; Andrew hit the bus with the plane’s right wing on his third pass, and then crashed into a pine tree. All three passengers were killed instantly, and their bodies burned beyond recognition.

Randy’s net worth was estimated at over $1.3 million at the time of his death.

He’s probably known best for being the backing vocalist and guitarist of the rock ‘n’ roll band Limp Bizkit, while he’s also a co-founder of the metal band Big Dumb Face, and was the guitarist and lead vocalist of the industrial rock ‘n’ roll band Black Light Burns.

Wes began playing the drums while still attending a local elementary school, but chose to switch to guitar because his parents didn’t allow percussive instruments in the house; looking up to his brother, Scott took on the bass guitar, and the two then began playing together.

The family eventually moved to Jacksonville, Florida, and Wes enrolled at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts; because his parents were deeply religious and forced Wes to go to church with them, he left home at the age of 18, but matriculated at around the same time, and then chose to pursue music rather than a college degree.

Career as a musician

Wes joined Lip Bizkit in 1994, only a couple of months after it was formed by John Otto, Sam Rivers and Fred Durst; they quickly established a cult following, and became popular in Florida.

When American turntablist DJ Lethal joined the band in 1995, Wes left because of a disagreement with other members, but returned only a couple of months later, after Limp Bizkit was signed to MCA Records through its record label Mojo. The band was dissatisfied with Mojo, eventually leaving the label and signing with Flip, an Interscope Records’ subsidiary.

Their debut album “Three Dollar Bill, Y’All” was released on 1 July 1997, and its eponymous lead single became a radio hit.

Limp Bizkit’s third album, “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water” was released on 17 October 2000, again topping Billboard 200, selling more than a million copies in its first week, and was the 18th best-selling album in the US in the decade.

Wes and his brother released Big Dumb Face’s first album, “Duke Lion Fights the Terror!” in March 201; Wes quit Limp Bizkit by the end of the year, citing ‘creative differences’, and in the same year, Wes and his brother formed their new band Eat the Day, with Adam Yas joining as their lead vocalist in January 2003.However, as Wes and the band’s producer Bob Ezrin were dissatisfied with Adam, they continued their search for a lead vocalist, but disbanded without releasing any songs, because they were unable to find a suitable vocalist.

The Untold Truth Of Steve Buscemi’s Son – Lucian Buscemi

Published

on

Lucian Buscemi is an American musician and actor, born on 30 June 1990 in New York City, USA. He’s known for being the son of actor, producer and director Steve Buscemi.

Early Life

Lucian is the only child resulting from the marriage between Steve Buscemi and Jo Andres.

Details about Lucian’s educational background are unknown. However, it has been disclosed he spent his childhood in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Despite his parents’ movie-oriented professions, Lucian developed a deep interest in rock and alternative music instead. Influenced by his father, Lucian came to love and grew up listening to the ‘70s legendary punk bands The Ramones and The Clash. He also counts Korn, Blink-182 and Green Day as his influences.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BxhpTZAlben/

Inspired by various music genres, Lucian Buscemi started learning to play various instruments at an early age. Nowadays he’s considered a multi-instrumentalist, as he plays the piano, guitar and bass.

Career

Hollywood – Actor & Musician

Lucian Buscemi’s career as an actor started very early in life, when he was only six years old, as he was cast in a minor role in the movie “Trees Lounge”. Premiered in 1996 and written and directed by Lucian’s father Steve Buscemi, this film centers around a mechanic named Tommy, who lets life pass by while he makes excuses not to leave his alcoholic ways.

In 2007 Lucian was involved i the soundtrack of “Interview”, with his band Fiasco’s song “0157: H7 (Spy Song)”.

The movie starring and directed by his father Steve, is a remake of “The Departed” and although its script received mixed critiques, it was also well reviewed by experts due to its execution.

In 2011 Lucian collaborated in the original soundtrack (OST) of the movie “4:44 Last Day on Earth”. The film – which received mixed reviews – is a SCI-FI drama directed by Abel Ferreira, and is centered in the story of two lovers spending the end of the world together in New York.

Also in 2011, Lucian worked in the sound department of the movie “Sal”, which is based on the real story of the actor/musician Sal Mineo.

Music Career – Fiasco

Along with Jonathan Edelstein and Julian Bennett Holmes, Lucian Buscemi – who was 16 years old at the time – formed the band Fiasco. Fiasco’s sound didn’t fit in only one genre, as the members of the band were inspired by many bands such as Bad Brains, Don Caballero and Lightning Bolt.

Often defined as a mix of math rock and hardcore punk, Lucian told Gothamist that the band members were musically inspired by their personal experiences and preferences: ‘We basically all got into hardcore punk via word of mouth and the internet, and then we wanted to play that style of music.’ As such, he considers the creation of Fiasco wasn’t determined by their environment or social background: ‘Kids getting into that style of music could happen anywhere.’

Despite starting as a cover band, this didn’t deter the members from experimenting with their sound, slowly improving and developing a more unique style: ‘It got noisier and more complex I guess. We started to play in odd time signatures, and the riffs we started writing became harder to play.’ Regardless of the changes the band went through, Fiasco still preserved their punk influences throughout its career.

After signing with the independent company Impose Records, in 2007 Fiasco released their first album – “God Loves Fiasco” – which contained 23 tracks and gained the band recognition in the local music scene of Brooklyn. After that they released various albums such as “Native Canadians” in 2008, “Fabolous Bozo FP” in 2009, and the single “Sinus Rhythm Breakdown” in 2012. These works were highly acclaimed by the public, leading the band to be showcased by not only rock music-especialized magazines, but by several mainstream media platforms.

Fiasco also toured the US several times but entered an indefinite hiatus in 2012, although apparently while in production of the single “Sinus Rhythm Breakdown”.

Its members concentrated on their personal projects – Buscemi has done more acting, in movies such as in “Interview”, “Tree Lounges” and “The Sopranos”, and has also been involved in the soundtracks of several Hollywood productions.

It’s unknown exactly what Lucian Buscemi is doing nowadays.
