    Default Article - What Randy Rhoads really thought about Black Sabbath

    https://metalheadzone.com/what-randy...black-sabbath/

    Not exactly a revelation but worth a read/listen. “Black Sabbath was like a church of evil to us”. Ugh, gimme a break.

    Funny how people think, I had a devout Christian upbringing and never though as Sabbath as a Church of evil or them as Satanic.

    I know he didn't like them because he thought they were so basic, but I never read where he said they were so "evil." If anything, he thought they were corny from what I read.

    Not to get too much into religion, but he was Lutheran, as I am, so we would have had similar ideas...and obviously I never felt Black Sabbath were evil, obviously, since they are my favourite band.
    He is not here. He has risen!

    WOW, Randy thought Sabbath were basic? Never knew that.

    He did.

    I have a 1984 book put out by Guitar Player magazine and there is an article on Rhoads with several quotes. He really dances around the Sabbath issue by saying things like "I was never a Black Sabbath fan. They were good at what they did, and let's leave it at that."

    Dana Strum and Rhoads' brother Kelle said that Rhoads thought Sabbath were "stock and basic."

    I have met Dana Strum (when he was in Vinnie Vincent's band) and wanted to ask him about Rhoads, but never got the time.

    I really don't care what he thought. Listen to the first two Quiet Riot albums. They was terrible. If it had not been for Bob's writing experience he would have never been any good

    I honestly like them. I have them both and I spin them once in while

    From what I have heard of them, they were very basic LA glam rock with an exceptional guitar player.

    I listened to them on YouTube once, not bad, but nothing like what they became afterwards with Metal Health, I use to have the mask when I was young.
