Welcome to Diary of an Axeman, an unofficial Randy Rhoads website. This page is to serve as a place to find out as much information as possible on the late great Mr. Randall William Rhoads. This page would not have been possible without the help of many great people who were willing to donate so much in the collective attitude of “sharing the wealth" to keep the flame alive and burning.
This is actually the second incarnation of the site. From 2003 - 2010 were were located at randy-rhoads.com
Speaking for myself (Matt), and I'm sure many others, for many years before the internet really hit its stride in the mid 2000's, Randy Rhoads info was hard to come by. Unless you knew someone, or knew someone who knew someone, it was hard to find anything Randy related. If you had an old magazine, or a 4th generation bootleg tape it was like gold. Along came the internet and that helped immensely in the spread of knowledge and interest. There are many great pages out there, as well as an excellent forum that gives all fans, no matter where they are, the opportunity to meet together in a friendly, almost family like environment. Hopefully this page will help continue to keep the memory alive, and carry on the legacy for generations to come of one of the most underrated, influential, virtuoso of our time.
