Postcars from a guitar hero...

The bulk of my life has been spent playing guitar as well as teaching it. My inspiration for teaching was a guitarist who died before I was even playing. His name was Randy Rhoads and he died in March of 1992 in a plane crash at the age of 25 while being the guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne. Here is a postcard he sent someone.

About a decade ago I actually called his mother who still owns the music store he taught at. I expected to get an answering machine. Instead I spoke to her. I was nervous and totally off center, but I did thank her for what her son gave to me as well as her support for his talents.

This should be an interesting autumn...
