VOTED FOR BY THE USERS OF UG!
Made to house the Great and the Good of Rock and Roll, as voted for by you!


RANDY RHOADS

Son of a music teacher from L.A., this promising young guitarist spent years hitting small bars in Hollywood with his band Quiet Riot. In 1979 he was suggested to Ozzy Osbourne as Guitarist for his solo band. He was almost immediately signed up, and proceeded to slay live crowds across the world, and write some of the greatest riffs of the 80's. Unfortunately he was taken from us before his time, as a victim in a tragic airplane crash, but his music will forever make our ears bleed pure awesomeness.




FRANK ZAPPA

This true legend changed the face of music through a career spanning over 30 years. Releasing over 60 albums through his life, he was regarded as a pioneer of Avant-garde, Experimental Music, and Progressive Rock. He was also a figure-head for important political movements such as free speech and the abolition of censorship. He was lost to Prostate Cancer in 1993, but to this day, he is still regarded as the benchmark for eccentricity and progression in music for forward-thinking musicians everywhere.



Watch out for the nomination threads. A new vote will take place each week!

I didn't vote for this shit
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

You didn't mention he wrote some of the most beautiful solos of all time, and could shred while still serving the song

I didn't vote either.

But I demand the entry of
-Frank Zappa
-Alex Chilton
-Brian Eno

I respect Rhode's talent. But his influence has pretty much been lost.

Zappa was either tied for second (which was one vote less than Randy) or a close third, I know Gilmour was second but can't remember if Zappa tied him or came just behind

On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:

In Which I replied.

But he was the biggest douchebag in rock! He was such an egomaniac!
