I recently wrote a column about Randy Rhoads and his music school where he began taking classes at age 6 and taught classes up to his tragic death in an airplane crash. It’s at http://www.nohoartsdistrict.com at L A Music Scene.
I have enough info to write another story on Rhoads, but I am wondering what you readers would like to see. Rhoads’ music? His penchant for learning new riffs and learning new techniques?
One fan of Rhoads wrote a comment at the end of story where he asserts that Rhoads’ estate is badly managed by Rhoads’ older brother Kelle Rhoads. I’ve put out feelers concerning that burning issue. Is it another case like Jimi Hendrix’s
I would love to see a film documentary done on Rhoads and I have the perfect person picked out for it. This person has a strong background in filming music acts for AOL’s Behind The Scenes, MTV and Fremantle Media. I enjoy his current work. It’s not sentimental, sappy, idolish and done in a choppy manner.
Problem is that in order to do that, the Randy Rhoads estate needs to be managed by someone who knows what they are doing…such as Jeff Jampol/Jampol Management. Jampol manages dead acts and makes them profitable. Jampol’s client list includes The Doors, Janis Joplin and Michael Jackson. This is the most logical choice. I cannot help but feel that the people running Rhoads’ estate are looking at thousands of dollars instead of generating millions of dollars.
There is so much more that could be done.
Want to make the school a historic landmark? Would you like to see Randy Rhoads stamps? How about a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? The possibilities are limitless.
As I’ve stated, I am in the process of hashing out some of my burning questions, what do you all think?
