Houses Of The Unholy: Phil Demmel, Machine Head

HOW DID YOUR RANDY RHOADS OBSESSION BEGIN?
“I saw him in my very first concert, back in 1981. It was Bill Graham’s Day On The Green, which was a festival up in the Bay Area. Ozzy was scheduled for 10 in the morning, so we were there at 5am so we could get up front! I saw this little guy onstage just owning it and playing with such passion and conviction, believing in every single note that he played. It’s what I had always wanted to do.”
