Rock Candy Magazine is a bi-monthly physical mag, with a free digital download for those who buy online. Yes, it’s actually printed on actual paper!

It’s the brainchild of Derek Oliver, Howard Johnson and Malcolm Dome, three Kerrang! writers who lived it all in the ’80s.

It’s aimed at the discerning fan who wants to wallow in nostalgia and relive the glory days of classic rock.

Rock Candy Mag is available from UK retailers and in shops around the world via distribution from industry giant Marketforce. Also available direct from us at www.rockcandymag.com

It’s 100 pages of the purest classic rock from the ’70s and ’80s, with no room for punk, new wave, skinny tie pop or post-industrial claptrap! And it’s all treated with respect and illustrated with the finest photography of the era.

Please help us spread the word.

A lover of classical music, Rhoads had taken initial steps into rock’n’roll as a 16 year old when he formed a band, that soon became Quiet Riot. Rhoads was vaulted to the limelight in 1979 when Ozzy Osbourne chose the relatively unknown guitarist to help shape a new future for him via his band, Blizzard of Oz. The result saw Rhoads co-script two of the most famous albums in hard rock history, Blizzard Of Oz and Diary of A Madman, and rapidly ascended the stairway of fame and recognition for his virtuoso playing and writing. Famed for the way he fused classical flavors with technically-excellent hard rock, Rhoads became one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock.
When he tragically passed away on March 19, 1982 in a plane accident, Rhoads was only 25 years old, but thankfully, the legend of his work, ethos and their continuing influence on a whole new generation of guitarists, has never dimmed.
Celebrate the life and legend of Randy Rhoads with Immortal Randy Rhoads – The Ultimate Tribute.
