Ozzy Osbourne tarjoaa 25 000 dollarin palkkion ratkaisevasta tiedosta, jolla Randy Rhoadsin varastetut instrumentit saataisiin takaisin ja tekijä kiinni

Ozzy Osbournen kitaristina tunnetun Randy Rhoadsin instrumentit varastettiin kiitospäivän iltana Kaliforniassa sijaitsevasta Musonian musiikkikoulusta. Edesmenneen kitaristin sisko Kathy Rhoads-D’Argenzio kertoi asiasta sosiaalisessa mediassa:

“My heart is BROKEN. Some one broke into Our beloved Musonia …. And’Stoled History’ 😪😪😪😪😪😪 everything is being assessed and under investigation. So no post as yet to exactly what was taken. I’m just at a loss for words right now. So very sad. Musonia was totally ransacked and suffered major damage.”

Myös The Randy Rhoads Society julkaisi asiasta Facebook-sivuillaan pian tapahtumien jälkeen.

Nyt Ozzy Osbourne on ottanut kantaa tilanteeseen tarjoamalla 25 000 dollarin palkkion ratkaisevasta tiedosta, jonka avulla ryöstäjä saataisiin kiinni ja varastetut tavarat palautettua musiikkikoululle. Musiikkikoululla on vahva side kitaristiin, sillä Randy Rhoadsin äiti pyöritti paikkaa ja Randy opetti siellä kitaransoittoa.

Pitkäkyntisen mukaan lähti paljon arvokkaita ja musiikkikoulun historialle merkittäviä tavaroita, muun muassa Randy Rhoadsin ensimmäinen sähkökitara Harmony Rocket vuodelta 1963 sekä Randyn äidin Delores Rhoadsin ensimmäinen trumpetti. Lisäksi rosvolle kelpasivat kaikki perhevalokuvat, fanituotteet sekä sekalaiset instrumentit.

Ozzy Osbournen päivityksen asiasta voit lukea tästä:

”As many of you have heard, the Musonia School of Music in N. Hollywood, CA (the school where Randy Rhoads famously taught guitar) was viciously robbed on Thanksgiving night. Musonia was run by Randy’s late mother, Delores, and after his death 37 years ago, the school became something of a pilgrimage to his fans from all over the world. It is a place where the Rhoads Family happily opened their hearts to share the life of Randy. As you can imagine, the items that were stolen, including Randy’s first electric guitar, are irreplaceable to the Rhoads Family. I am heartbroken that these treasured physical memories of Randy and Delores have been taken from the family so I’ve decided to personally offer a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction and/or return of all stolen items. For information regarding the theft or return of these items please contact: Nick D’Argenzio Phone: 818-281-7893 E-Mail: nickdargenzio@gmail.com
Here is a list and images of the items that were taken:
· Randy Rhoads’ First Electric Guitar Owned, Harmony Rocket Est. 1963
· Randy Rhoads’ Original Quiet Riot Gear – Peavey Amp Head, 1970s
· Randy Rhoads Series Marshall Head, Rare Protoype No. 1 or 2 given to the family by Marshall Company.
· Delores Rhoads’ First Trumpet, a Prewar/Great Depression Era Silver Fresh Besson Trumpet. This was given to her as a child by her medical doctor father in exchange for medical services as a barter during the great depression. This subsequently sparked Delores Rhoads long lived music career.
· 40 years of fan gifts to the Rhoads Family, memorabilia, all photos of Randy Rhoads, the Osbournes, Delores Rhoads, and miscellaneous instruments were taken. The photo shown in the main room was cleared out.”
