For our feature story on the new Marshall 1959 Randy Rhoads Signature amp, which is in the August issue, on sale now, Guitar World was granted special access to a private area of the Musonia School of Music--the music school owned by Randy's mother, Delores. As you can see from the pix in the August issue, reporter Alan di Perna was shown such Rhoads artifacts as his very first guitar (a Gibson Army & Navy flattop acoustic), a set list from the final Rhoads/Osbourne tour, his Super Lead head and more. Present at the photo shoot were Randy's mother, as well as his brother Kelle and sister Kathy.
As photographer Travis Shinn took so many photos throughout the day, I figured this would be a good opportunity to show you some of the ones we didn't use in the issue. Click on any of the thumbnails to see a larger version.
Thank you to Mrs. Rhoads and Kelle for helping us put this story together...we are forever grateful.
Ever wonder what went into the making of a Guitar World magazine cover? Wonder no more, because this special gallery takes you behind the scenes of the cover shoot for our latest issue, featuring Disturbed's Dan Donegan in a classic Maiden-esque pose!
