Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz – “One Step Forward, Two Steps Back”

Here’s a quick update of Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz® Production and Shipping.

The 1st wave of production actually wrapped at the end of March and began making it’s way to our USA warehouse. Sadly, it has been sitting on the container ship off the San Francisco Bay now for over a month waiting for a slot at the port to off load. Each day, we hope for a notice that we are cleared to doc at the port of Oakland, but we continue to wait. This is the frustrating part of our business, and especially so in the Covid-World as it’s the one thing we have no control over. All we can do is promise if to keep you updated the second it  is released to go through US Customs and begin the short trip to our US warehouse.

The 2nd production wave of Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz Ltd. Edition Statues  is also complete, but we got some unhappy news earlier this week about International ports. There has been a new Covid outbreak and work slow down there, so these Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz are now waiting there for our turn to load onto our Container ship to come to the US. This is why the title of this blog entry is “One step forward, two steps back.

We know that all are exciting to get these new Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz and we will do everything we can to expedite the shipping process once we get the initial inventory checked in to our US warehouse. Make sure you are signed up for email alerts to get all the news.

As always…thanks for supporting KnuckleBonz and all the great music artists we work with.

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.
