100 Greatest Guitar Solos: No. 28 "Mr. Crowley" (Randy Rhoads)

“I’d have to say that ‘Mr. Crowley’ is my most memorable solo,” said Randy Rhoads.

“I had spent hours trying to figure out a solo for the song, but wasn’t getting anywhere.

"I finally put something down. Then Ozzy came in and said, ‘It’s crap—everything you’re playing is crap.’ He told me to get in there and just play how I felt. He made me really nervous, so I just played anything. When I came back to listen to it, he said it was great, and I had to agree.”
