Randy Rhoads Photo Book: Intro by Ozzy, Epilogue By Tom Morello!

May 12, 2021

Photographer Ross Halfin is legendary. Most classic rock pictures, it was probably Halfin. And now he’s working with Rufus Publications to release “Randy Rhoads By Ross Halfin”!

The book is a 280-page coffee-table book with lots of the well-known pictures and, as you might expect, some you’ve never seen of Rhoads (during his time with Ozzy & Quiet Riot).

Ozzy Osbourne does the book’s intro and there’s an epilogue by guitarist Tom Morello.

You can get the book in three editions:

* The standard book
240mm by 340mm, 280-page hardback book with printed cover and cloth slipcase.

* The Deluxe Signed Leather Edition
240mm by 340mm, 280-page hardback book with blue leather cover, lenticular and white leather slipcase. Numbered 1 to 500. Personally signed by Ozzy Osbourne and Ross Halfin.

* The Super Deluxe Edition
Measuring 297mm by 420mm, this 280-page hardback book with blue leather cover and 3D lenticular comes in a special blue slipcase and outer presentation box with three numbered giclee prints. Numbered 1 to 150. Personally signed by Ozzy Osbourne and Ross Halfin. 

Pre-orders start today, Wednesday, May 12!

Rhoads’ bandmate in Ozzy’s group, bassist Rudy Sarzo tweeted, “@RossHalfin was not only our unofficial band photographer but also a tour bus mate, a trusted confidant and an awesome Hang. He had photographic access to Ozzy’s world like no one else. I’m really looking forward to his book.”

Rhoads and two others were killed on March 19, 1982 when the small plane they were flying in at Flying Baron Estates in Leesburg, Florida hit Ozzy’s tour bus, then crashed into a mansion. Rhoads was only 25 years old.

Is Rhoads Ozzy’s best guitarist of all-time? One thing’s for certain, his legend lives on!
