Rock Iconz – Black Sabbath on the Rock Walk of Fame

On this day in 1992 Black Sabbath was inducted in the the Rock Walk of Fame in Hollywood, CA. Unlike the other walk of fame in Tinsletown, this is reserved for all our rock music heroes.

Our Rock Iconz Statue Series has been fortunate enough to work with Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi on limited edition designs.

Tony’s statue is from the Black Sabbath era circa 1972 with him in one of the flowing silk tops. This was before going to the signature black stage wear. That Rock Iconz is in stock. Ships today, order here.

Ozzy’s Rock Iconz designs have been more from his solo era. Those designs are long since SOLD OUT, but we do have Ozzy Osbourne Diary of a Madman and Bark at the Moon 3D Vinyl is limited supply. Don’t miss out, once the are SOLD OUT, they are gone forever. We have never rereleased any SOL OUT design in the history of KnuckleBonz. Order Here

We still hold out hope to create a set for the band adding Geezer Butler and Bill Ward. But, as you know, licensing for bands that are no longer performing together can be a challenge. KnuckleBonz only created officially licensed work.

Rock Hard this Holiday Season!

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!

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.
