Ozzy Osbourne Offering $25,000 Reward For Return Of Randy Rhoads’ Stolen Gear

As previously reported, music gear that used to belong to late Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads has been stolen from the Musonia School Of Music in North Hollywood, CA. Osbourne has since commented on the situation, saying that he is offering a “$25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction and/or return of all stolen items.”

Osbourne said the following:

“As many of you have heard, the Musonia School of Music in N. Hollywood, CA (the school where Randy Rhoads famously taught guitar) was viciously robbed on Thanksgiving night. Musonia was run by Randy’s late mother, Delores, and after his death 37 years ago, the school became something of a pilgrimage to his fans from all over the world. It is a place where the Rhoads Family happily opened their hearts to share the life of Randy. As you can imagine, the items that were stolen, including Randy’s first electric guitar, are irreplaceable to the Rhoads Family. I am heartbroken that these treasured physical memories of Randy and Delores have been taken from the family so I’ve decided to personally offer a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction and/or return of all stolen items. For information regarding the theft or return of these items please contact: Nick D’Argenzio Phone: 818-281-7893 E-Mail: nickdargenzio@gmail.com

Here is a list and images of the items that were taken:

· Randy Rhoads’ First Electric Guitar Owned, Harmony Rocket Est. 1963

· Randy Rhoads’ Original Quiet Riot Gear – Peavey Amp Head, 1970s

· Randy Rhoads Series Marshall Head, Rare Protoype No. 1 or 2 given to the family by Marshall Company.

· Delores Rhoads’ First Trumpet, a Prewar/Great Depression Era Silver Fresh Besson Trumpet. This was given to her as a child by her medical doctor father in exchange for medical services as a barter during the great depression. This subsequently sparked Delores Rhoads long lived music career.

· 40 years of fan gifts to the Rhoads Family, memorabilia, all photos of Randy Rhoads, the Osbournes, Delores Rhoads, and miscellaneous instruments were taken. The photo shown in the main room was cleared out.”
