In the spirit of the day, and for those who may remember and want take a stroll down memory lane to this place, post how you learned about and discovered Randy's music.

Long Live RR, RIP.

Long live Randy Rhoads.
I first got into him in summer of 83 I was 13 at the time.

Started playing guitar in 86, have been a fan since.
Can honestly say that he is one of my favorite guitarists/musicians to this day and still get that feeling when hearing or trying to play his work.

It's upsetting that there aren't lots of posts here today on this sad day.
This was once a place that was very busy.
I would like it to always be here and will do whatever I can to help going forward.

Lets please continue our tribute site and more importantly, preserve the memory of Randy Rhoads. *r*

Right on, I miss it too. There's got to be a way to make our more "Web 2.0" I'll look into perhaps some social integration options and maybe a responsive mobile UI and run some options by Smirn'.

For me,my brother was a Sabbath fan and got me into them at an early age. When Jamie (my brother) told me about Sabbath splitting with Ozzy,I was a bit pissed. Time went on and reading,hearing word of mouth and radio talked of Ozzy going solo. My brother and I through around names (most sounded good) but,we weren't even close. I heard a snippet of Blizzard on one of the radio stations and thought wow.....but,never got a good grasp on it. Next thing I know,my brother comes in and say's "Paul,you gonna freak". Then he shows me a copy of Blizzard he bought downtown. Hell yeah. I said "Put it on,crank it up".....not before we blazed. Next thing I know,I hear this freight train roaring and said "Oh sh*t"! BOOM!!! "OMG.....NO WAY.....LET ME SEE THE ALBUM COVER" I said. The rest is history. By the way,I was sold at freight train. Rest in peace Randy. God bless my (our) Superman. *r*

I discovered RR back in '89 when a friend of mine gave me the Tribute tape. Since that day Randy has been with me through all the good and bad times.

Likewise P C M, rrguitar and Metal Matt I also miss discussions that took place here back in the day. I remember the time when I couldn't wait to log in and read all the new posts that RR.tk bros posted while we in EU were asleep.

Awesome ! I remember all of you guys btw. Nice that we logged on here at the same time.

I was thinking the same thing about maybe the site being not up to the 2.0 thing myself :lol:

That could be one of the few reasons.
In any case, I see no reason why this forum cannot rise again.

Are all the other Mods besides yourself Matt, still onboard?

I'd love to be part of this going forward !!
Anything to help the rising.
