Randy Rhoads died on March 19, 1982 in a plane crash in Leesburg, Florida while on tour with Ozzy Osbourne. This year marks the 40th anniversary of his death. Rhoads is considered a central figure in metal music, credited with pioneering a fast, technical style of lead guitar that largely defined the metal scene of the 1980s. Randy was only 25 when he died.
