Videos of Randy Rhoads are few and far between and, since his tragic death in 1982, his myriad fans still clamour of evidence of how great a guitarist he was.

RIP, dude.

Simon Bradley is a guitar and especially rock guitar expert who worked for Total Guitar magazine and has in the past contributed to world-leading music and guitar titles like MusicRadar (obviously), Guitarist, Guitar World and Louder. What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
