Randy Rhoads was a hurricane force of talent who was lost way too soon. Musicians like this are poster children for folks that are born to do what they are known for. Although he's known very well in the musician and music appreciation scholar circles he never got his recognition in society's general knowledge of him due to a short career unlike EVH, SRV, etc who had extended public exposure and influence to be included in daily reminders of his existence. Like every other fan out there I wish RR was still with us because who knows what he'd be giving us from his guitar but thankful they did this documentary right to give RR the recognition he rightfully deserves. If you are music fan this is a must see. You are missed, Randy!

RR fans will be happy

This was a surprisingly polished film, overdue and deserving for such an important and somewhat overlooked artist of the hard rock era. It focuses mostly on his pre-Ozzy days in LA, struggling with Quiet Riot. It's a story that's never been told this comprehensively before - the filmmakers did a kind of miraculous thing by interweaving found audio against many rarely seen images of that time, along with thoughtful commentary by contemporaries. It really elevates Rhoades as an artist worthy of this kind of consideration, and hearing people reminisce about what it was like to watch a young Randy Rhoads mesmerize the crowd in those LA clubs is a highlight. Missing here is any in-depth analysis of the actual music, especially the two masterful Ozzy albums - we can assume they couldn't secure the rights - so you never hear any of those great recordings, but it almost doesn't matter, this thing is eminently watchable. If you grew up in the 80s in awe of the music, and before our social media age where we know everything about everyone, you will love this. It really captures the humble and endearing quality of this young guy before his brief moment of superstardom and heartbreaking end, which is still hard to believe. Rock forever, RR.

Well Done!

It was well done and long overdue! Had to be a challenge finding old footage and photos, interviews and such - but they really did a good job piecing all this together. Randy was a phenomenal player - his loss is a tragedy. I enjoyed the show and respective thoroughly! Again - long overdue!

Guitar God ?? Are u kidding me, he was an ok guitar player, nothing special. If you want to see GREATNESS, check out the guitarist that made Eddie VanHalens jaw drop,,,DOYLE DYKES on u tube. I have been in the music biz for 55 years and never seen anybody like Doyle,,,he also teaches and is very humble

An astounding guitarist, and from what I've heard and read, a wonderful human being. I've been playing for 50 years and I'm not even close to where he was at. Such a HUGE loss. R.I.P. Randy.
