Guitar World: Premiered exclusively by Guitar World, a new clip from the upcoming Randy Rhoads documentary – Randy Rhoads: Reflections of a Guitar Icon – has been released. The clip contains archive audio of Rhoads discussing his six-string influences, as well as an exploration of the “cross-town rivalry” he had with Eddie Van Halen.

In additional archive audio, Eddie Van Halen can be heard discussing Rhoads himself, saying,

“He was one guitarist who was honest, anyway. Because he said everything he did he learned from me.

“He was good, but I don’t really think he did anything that I haven’t done. And there ain’t nothing wrong with it. I’ve copied some other people, you know?”
