89: The one with Quiet Riot's Rudy Sarzo


Rudy Sarzo is a bass playing hero. With a career spanning over 40 years, he’s headlined worldwide tours with Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, and Dio, recorded multi-platinum albums, and appeared in numerous MTV videos.  But, without knowing what he’s been up to for the better part of his life, you’d never tell he’s one of the most fierce bass guitarists hard rock ever boasted by talking to him alone. Charming company, entertaining and interesting, there’s a great depth to him that reflects the power behind the many, familiar, classic records he’s been part of.

Music Matters with Darrell Craig Harris

Listen in on my insightful and moving chat with Bassist Rudy Sarzo which really impacted me! Rudy and I spoke about many things including why connection through music is part of the vital life-blood that musicians can give to their audiences as well as receive from the audience with gratitude. Also, Rudy shared his feelings about the tragic unexpected passing of Ozzy’s legendary guitarist Randy Rhoades, and the last moment's Rudy spent with his long time friend and bandmate from Quiet Riot Frankie Banali! It was very honest, real, and very emotional! I hope you get a chance to hear what Rudy has to share. Rudy’s a very spiritual guy which he talks about in our chat, he made it clear that both Randy and Frankie were family to him! photo credit: © 2014 Chris Brody So...make sure you connect with Rudy Sarzo through his Social Media Channels links below: -- - Rudy Sarzo - The Dash project A Big thanks to our friends at #AudioGeer and the team @shure for their awesome support! #Shure #MV7 #podcast mic!
