There's a series of articles in the new Guitar World titled "Exit Stage Left" that all are about the last concerts by famous musicians -- including Kurt Cobain's last show, Cliff burton's last show, Slash's last show with Guns N'Roses, and Randy's last show with Ozzy.

The Randy article takes up most of a page and has the famous photo from the Tribute album cover.

My copy (it has Dragonforce on the cover) just arrived in the mail today. 8)

Not much, really. There are quotes from Rudy, and it reallys plays up the idea that Randy had already said he was quitting and that he and Ozzy were on the outs and that maybe they were just finally starting to get along again when the plane crash happened. Seemed to me like they were trying to add extra drama in the story to some already dramatic facts, in my opinion. :?

I thought the "It's Curtains For You!" at the top of the article was very inappropriate given why these were the last gigs for Randy, Stevie Ray and Cliff Burton.

I did enjoy reading how Rudy approaches each gig since then and his attitude. An event like that makes you realize you gotta appreciate every day as if tomorrow may not be there for you or someone you care about.

The quality of GW has gone down a lot in the past few years. It's really more like People Magazine now except with more tattoos and Les Pauls.

Next time Randy is going to be mentioned in a magazine they should send it to TK so we can check it for mistakes before they make total asses of themselves. :lol:

Yeah, not that this matters much, but the big picture of Cobain playing on his last tour was reversed, too. Cobain was playing right-handed???? I don't think so. Oops, noob in the editing room...
