- Randy Rhoads
Rhoads made his mark on metal history as a guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, but met a tragic end in a plane crash in 1982. After a tour date in Tennessee, a pilot friend talked him into a short plane ride despite his fear of flying. Little did he know, the pilot was jacked up on cocaine and tried flying dangerously close to Ozzy’s tour bus to freak out its inhabitants. For the third time they tried pulling this dangerous stunt, the left wing clipped the bus and sent the passengers to a fiery death.
