On Thanksgiving, music equipment belonging to Randy Rhoads was stolen from the Musonia School of Music in North Hollywood, California, the lesson studio founded by Randy’s mother, Delores Rhoads, more than 70 years ago.

Randy's sister, Kathy Rhoads-D'Argenzio, first broke the news, reporting on her Instagram page, “My heart is broken. Someone broke into our beloved Musonia and ‘stoled [sic] 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.”
