zakk did not learn it from Randy, its just a song of his that he plays.
Randy's is much better, zakk leaves stuff out and throws in pinches too much and his tone sucks.
but hey, i still love you zakk!

Never heard of Crazy Train?

After I clicked the link, I recognized the song, but I never matched the name with a guitarist.

I liked more the intro of Randy, and liked more the solo of Zakk.

I voted Zakk. I just like his overall sound. The pinch harmonics bring new things to the song, and I love his tone for the solo.

Randy's version is better. I mean, we all know Zakk can do crazy pinch harmonics. He doesn't need to sh!t up the song just to prove it.
#23
He just made it all pinch harmonics instead of playing it right.

Randy plays the solo so much cleaner.

Randy's version. Zakk isn't as good of a guitarist as everybody says. I havent seen anything by him that actually impresses me.

Randy will always be better than Zakk IMO.
But whatever happened to no vs. threads?

Randy FTW. He's a rare example of how a guitarist probably would have become even more famous had he not died.

And can Zakk play the riff without chucking in harmonics? I swear he didn't play the entire riff once.
