Phil Demmel Confirmed For "Randy Rhoads Remembered"

Machine Head

"Randy Rhoads Remembered: A Celebration Of A Legend" is scheduled to take place on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California.

From the creators of "Bonzo Bash" (the celebration show for LED ZEPPELIN's John Bonham), Brian Tichy and Joe Sutton bring you yet another celebration for an icon!

Tichy and Sutton, in conjunction with Randy Rhoads' brother Kelle Rhoads; the Rhoads family; "Bonzo Bash" guitarist/former student of Randy's, Brent Woods; as well as one of Rhoads' dearest friends, rock bass legend Rudy Sarzo, have come together to put on the ultimate tribute celebration in honor of one of the the most influential and brightest stars the world of rock guitar has ever seen; Randy Rhoads, the legendary guitarist who revived Ozzy Osbourne's career with two iconic records! Sadly, Randy's future was cut short on March 19, 1982 when he died in a plane crash. He was only 25 years old. His songwriting, solos, technique and tone on the albums "Blizzard Of Ozz" and "Diary Of A Madman" permanently placed him at the top of rock's most influential guitarists polls.
