TESLA guitarist Frank Hannon last week travelled to the Musonia School Of Music in North Hollywood, California, where he got a chance to speak with Kelle Rhoads, the brother of legendary OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Randy Rhoads, and Randy and Kelle's 89-year-old mother, Delores Rhoads, a public school music teacher who founded Musonia in 1948. You can now watch a 17-minute video recap of Frank's visit below.
As previously reported, fans are invitied to celebrate Randy Rhoads' birthday with his family this week at Kathryn Rhoads D'Argenzio and her husband Richard D'Argenzio's wine-tasting room in Burbank, California.
The Randy Rhoads Birthday Tribute weekend starts Thursday, December 6 and ends Saturday, December 8 — open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
This will be a weekend to remember for all fans and friends alike. You will get to meet the whole Rhoads family, taste the Randy Rhoads wine, and see personal memorabilia that has not been shown for public viewing.
