Randy Rhoads Honored by Frank Hannon & Rudy Sarzo with Incredible Tribute Performance of Ozzy Classic “I Don’t Know”

SANTA ANA, CA — Randy Rhoads was honored by Frank Hannon and Quiet Riot bassist Rudy Sarzo on Thursday for the 2019 BONZO BASH & RANDY RHOADS REMEMBERED concert at the Yost Theater, Santa Ana, CA. The RRR and Bonzo Bash has become an annual tradition during NAMM week and a star filled lineup of some of the greatest musicians in Rock-N-Roll.

The TESLA guitarist and solo artist / vocalist mesmerized the audience as he gave a blistering note-for-note performance of the Ozzy Osbourne classic “I Don’t Know” from Ozzy’s ’80 debut album “Blizzard of Oz.” Randy is credited with having written much of the album including the timeless riffs on “Crazy Train“, “I Don’t Know“, “Suicide Solution” and many more. Rhoads and two others were killed on March 19, 1982 when the small plane they were flying in at Flying Baron Estates in Leesburg, Florida struck Ozzy’s tour bus, then crashed into a mansion. Rhoads was 25 years old.

Thank you Daniel Kurywchak for capturing this live performance!

Randy has been one of Frank’s most early influences. Frank had the honor of interviewing Randy’s mother, Dolores Rhoads, in 2014 when he travelled to the Musonia School of Music in North Hollywood, California. Frank also got a chance to speak with Kelle Rhoads, the brother of Randy Rhoads. Randy and Kelle’s 89-year-old mother, Delores Rhoads, a former public school music teacher founded Musonia in 1948.
