Randy Rhoads White Jackson On the Way to The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Randy Rhoads white Jackson Guitar is now on the way to honor him ahead of his induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this fall. The induction ceremony is scheduled to take place October 30th in Cleveland.

We recently spoke with Kathy Rhoads Dargenzio, Randy’s sister and head of the Randy Rhoads Trust along with Randy’s brother Kelle Rhoads.  We takled about Randy and how happy the family was with our new Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz Statue. During that call she told us one of Randy’s axes would be going to the hall, but they were still going back on forth on which to send. Glad they picked the White Jackson. We think it’s the most striking of Randy’s guitars he played on-stage.

Our 1st project when we founded KnuckleBonz 18 years ago was Randy Rhoads with his white Jackson from the Diary of a Madman era of Ozzy Osbourne. The great folks at Fender/Jackson actually sent us one of the reproductions they had done to help us nail as many details as possible. That was great, with only one problem. When we were getting down to final approvals and production, one of the head guys in the custom shop at Fender called to tell us the guitar we had not an exact match to Randy Rhoad’s original. The big difference was the body. Randy’s White Jackson has a wider body and slightly different shape that the more sleek reproduction. So…that part of the sculpt was a complete re-do….it happens.

The shot in the Blog here is one of the most coveted in the KnuckleBonz studio. It’s from a sound check taken by the great Neil Zlozower. Neil has helped us with photo research over the many years. He was kind enough to sign this print from his original negative…so cool.

Our Randy Rhoads 3 Rock Iconz Statue is super hot and now on Back-Order on it’s way to a SELL OUT. Order Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz Here…No FoMO!

QUEEN’s “Frank” the Robot Coming to KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl®

If you have been paying attention, you might have caught glimpses of this since we announced our QUEEN Rock Iconz® Limited Edition Statues for Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon some weeks ago. The beloved metal behemoth that graces the cover of QUEEN’s News of the World album sparked by Rogers’s love of Sci-Fi and the cover of Astounding Science Fiction’s story by Tom Godwin, “A Gulf Between” is coming to our 3D Vinyl Series® this Fall.

We decided that this particular design would be better served by a full statute figure, rather than the 12X12 format we have used for other 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statues like Ozzy Osbourne’s Diary of a Madman or Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power. Excited to share that the statue is well into production for a very limited run in 2021. #staytuned here and via our email list for launch specifics.

Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz® Ltd. Edition Statue from KnuckleBonz® 1st Wave of Production is complete and on way to KnuckleBonz USA Warehouse. 

This 1st wave of the 3000 unit Rock Iconz Limited Edition Statue production went well with only minor Covid disruptions. This our 3rd production of Randy Rhoads working directly with the Rhoads Family and Randy Rhoads Truest. The shot here in the Blog is from the very first days of performing live with Ozzy Osbourne  1981. The design has Randy in his red leather stage outfit w/ white shoes and almost still can see him looking at back for ques from Tommy Aldridge at Day on the Green at the Oakland Coliseum. Most of the Blizzard of Oz was played during these live sets. There were of course s smatteri9ng of Black Sabbath era songs to close the set.

Pre-Orders are super crazy on this one so it looks like we might have to go right on “back-order” after the 1st production wave hits our warehouse and goes out the the Randy Rhoads Superfans that have already pre-ordered.

You can pre-order here to make sure you will own Randy Rhoads III Rock Iconz Ltd. Edition Statue: https://knucklebonz.com/product/randy-rhoads-rock-iconz-statue/

Rock Iconz Randy Rhoads (1956 to 1982) “Hard to Believe It’s Been 39 Years”

Hard to grasp it’s been 39 years since we lost guitar virtuoso Randy Rhoads. Can still remember the lingering effects of the damage we did from the partying  at the Ozzy Osbourne Dairy of a Madman concert at the Omni in Atlanta March 17th, 1982. We got to see Randy Rhoads ablaze that night. Ozzy lifted Randy high over head, we cheered and head banged with no hint at what was to come. March 18th it was on to Nashville for what would be Randy’s last performance. On March 19th, 1982, he was gone…

Randy Rhoads was the inspiration and the engine for Ozzy’s first 2 solo records, “The Blizzard of Oz,” and “Diary of a Madman.” It’s fair to ask, how would Ozzy’s career would have progressed if Randy was not there for that critical, but all too brief time?

We have included a short video here from the KnuckleBonz® production floor. Our work on the Randy Rhoads 3 Rock Iconz® Ltd. Edition Statues continues and is going well. Still on track for the May/June ship date. This is one of the fastest sellers in the 18 years of KnuckleBonz. Pre-Order now to be part of not more that 3000 Superfans to own this limited edition collectibles. This production is officially licensed with the Rhoads Family and the Randy Rhoads Trust.

Ozzy Osbourne with Randy Rhoads on the Blizzard of Oz Tour

Here’s s great shot of Ozzy Osbourne on the tour for the initial solo album “The Blizzard of Oz.” Stage left of course is the great Randy Rhoads ripping his signature polka dot, harpoon-headed V-guitar. Photos of this period that have both Ozzy and Randy in frame are so precious. Ozzy was just beginning to emerge as a major solo headliner on the strength of the Blizzard of Oz and the “Crazy Train single at this point.

We were fortunate to see Randy Rhoads w/ Ozzy live at the 2nd to last show before we lost him in 1982. That show was in Atlanta, GA on the Diary of a Madman Tour.

Production continues on our Randy Rhoads III Rock Iconz Limited Edition statue. All is going well with not major production hiccups or Covid-Distruption so far. Things are still on track for the original May/June ship date. Sales are hot on this one so decently pre-order if you want a chance to this limited edition.
