A lover of classical music, Rhoads had taken initial steps into rock 'n' roll as a 16-year-old when he formed a band, that soon became QUIET RIOT. Rhoads was vaulted to the limelight in 1979 when Ozzy Osbourne chose the relatively unknown guitarist to help shape a new future for him via his band, BLIZZARD OF OZZ. The result saw Rhoads co-script two of the most famous albums in hard rock history, "Blizzard Of Ozz" and "Diary of A Madman", and rapidly ascended the stairway of fame and recognition for his virtuoso playing and writing. Famed for the way he fused classical flavors with technically excellent hard rock, Rhoads became one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock.

When he tragically passed away on March 19, 1982 in a plane accident, Rhoads was only 25 years old, but thankfully, the legend of his work, ethos and their continuing influence on a whole new generation of guitarists, has never dimmed.
