It’s been fully 35 years since we lost Randy, but his reputation as one of rock’s most technical, yet emotive guitar players lives on. Our 14-page special includes brand new interviews with his first ever roadie Harold Friedman, and with the guitarist who replaced Randy in Ozzy Osbourne’s band, Bernie Tormé. We’re also publishing one of the last interviews Randy ever did, as Rock Candy Mag plays tribute to an incredible talent…
