I am a big fan of Randy Rhoads. I did not really know about him until after his death. I had the first LP, but never really listened to it much in 1981. In June of 1982, while learning songs in a band, someone played "Diary of a Madman." I was hooked. I wish I could have gone to Musonia, his mom's music school, when I was in Los Angeles. Hopefully I will have more time on the next trip out.
Here are a few pictures that a co-worker took in January of 1982, as they played the Met Center, now the site of a Mall of America parking lot.
I never got to see Randy play. All I have are these pictures. Enjoy.
