Here's a new one for you guys, your favourite stolen riff or lick?

Mine has to be the main riff to "Burn" by Deep Purple. Direct lift from Gershwin's "Fascinating Rythm" (just slow it down and put some swing into it). Love to hear yours.

I'd have to say the intro. riff to "Diary of a Madman."  Randy lifted the classical riff from a cat named Leo Brouwer. 

And David McNaught can play the sh*t out of that song, by the way!

A little off topic, but I agree with everybody here that Randy Rhoads is one of the best rock guitarists ever.

Of course, aside from "Mr. Crowley" and the live solo to "Suicide Solution," I'd have to say that "S.A.T.O." is by far and away my favorite Randy Rhoads song.  The fills in the last verse give me chills and make me snarl every time I hear them!

Razor,

You have great taste. S.A.T.O is definitely one of my favorite Rhoads songs as well. I would love to see what Randy would be doing today. Such an amazingly talented guitarist/musician!

Don't feel bad Leon, I was the same way years ago. I was looking for a progressive rock band to join ala Genesis meets King Crimson, kinda like  a Spocks Beard thing, and wound up joining a meteal band. They were randy fans big time. I was a DiMeola and larry carlton nut. I got into randy. Never learned his toons, but he is one of rocks premier guitarist....

He's not very good is he (only joking)! Easy to spot the classical influences. In some respects it's from the same school of thought as Blackmore and Malmsteen but with a heavy metal edge.

I've got the first couple of Ozzy albums on order just as a result of these vids and the forum so many thanks guys.
