Birthday Tribute for the Late Randy Rhoads Being Held This Weekend
By: Mike Bober

The family of the late, great, Randy Rhoads would like you to join them to celebrate the guitar legend’s birthday.

The Randy Rhoads birthday tribute weekend starts Thursday (December 6th) and ends on Saturday (December 8th) while being open from 3pm to 9pm at Kathy Rhoads D’Argenzio and husband Richard D’Argenzio’s wine tasting room in Burbank, CA.

Those in attendance will be able to meet the whole Rhoads family, taste the Randy Rhoads wine and see personal memorabilia that has never been displayed for public viewing.

The D’Argenzio family has been producing the special Randy Rhoads wine for several years; all proceeds go to funding for the Randy Rhoads Foundation, which assists kids in learning music.

Randy’s family added a special note in the announcement, “The Rhoads family wishes to thank you all for all the heartfelt support and love for Randy. We also thank you for keeping his memory alive.”

Rhoads tragically passed away on March 19th, 1982 in a plane crash. He is best known for his incredible guitar riffs (“Crazy Train”, “Mr. Crowley”) behind Ozzy Osbourne in the group, Blizzard of Ozz.
