Randy would have been 55 yesterday. Awhile after he was killed I stuck a note up over my desk: RANDY RHOADS WAS 24. DO IT NOW. I was wrong about his age (he was 25), and it hadn’t occurred to me that the note would frighten people. I tried to explain: I wasn’t suicidal. Been there, done that. I put the note up to remind myself to stop wasting time, to work harder at the things I wanted to learn and accomplish. I don’t remember when I took it down.
