Let me just say... I started playing guitar in 1985 because of him. In high school I was the kid known as the one who could play Randy's solo's. What a rush. Any guitar enthusiasts or RR fanatics out there.. or ? One of my favorite solo's is the one in Revelation: Mother Earth... followed closely by Mr. Crowley, Over the Mountain and Diary of a Madman. In a word "Masterful".
