Motley Crue’s Mick Mars Reveals Truth About Randy Rhoads

Mick Mars recently recalled seeing Randy Rhoads perform live with Quiet Riot, and argued that “no one” can replicate Eddie Van Halen‘s playing.

It has been noted that the grounded team player, Mick Mars never displayed the flashy licks or trailblazing techniques that would earn him the reputation of an ’80s electric guitar patron saint like the two aforementioned legends, but his sound and spirit nevertheless played a key role in shaping the decade’s sonic footprint.

Moreover, being years older than his Mötley Crüe bandmates meant that Mick had plenty of practical experience before making it big, which also meant that he could look at what the younger players were doing with a keener eye. During a recent interview on “Rock Of Nations With Dave Kinchen And Shane McEachern”, Mars, a Sunset Strip veteran, reflected on witnessing Randy Rhoads’ talent at a Quiet Riot gig (transcription via Blabbermouth):

“Randy [Rhoads] and I didn’t know each other, but I went to see him a few times at Starwood when he was with Quiet Riot — right before Ozzy [Osbourne] stole Rudy [Sarzo] and Randy. I saw him a couple of times, and I went, ‘That kid’s really, really a good player.’ So I went to see him a couple of times. And I wasn’t surprised that he got there with Ozzy, but it was cool to see that.”
