Jackson White Concorde

Randy Rhoads not only influenced how metal is played—he also had a profound impact on how metal guitars look, thanks to the Jackson guitar that he helped design. As legend has it, in late 1980 Rhoads approached Grover Jackson, then with Charvel’s Guitar Repair, with a sketch of a radical new guitar body design. The resulting white ax, dubbed “the Concorde” because of its futuristic, angular shape, established a new aesthetic for metal guitar design. It also marked the first time the now-famous Jackson logo appeared on a guitar’s headstock.

Although many photos of Randy performing with the Concorde exist, the instrument was eventually replaced by an even sleeker-looking black model based on his refinements to the original design. While that guitar has become known and revered as the Jackson Rhoads, many fans still consider the Concorde the Randy Rhoads model.

In celebration of the company’s, and the guitar’s, 30th anniversary, Jackson is producing a limited edition of Rhoads’ Concorde that replicates every nuance of the original, right down to the wear and tear the guitarist inflicted on it. Just 60 examples will be made, each handcrafted by Jackson White Concorde master builder Mike Shannon, with relic work done by Chip Ellis, the craftsman responsible for the critically acclaimed limited-edition Eddie Van Halen “Frankenstein” relics.

Rhoads’ Concorde has been recreated in the past, but never to this exacting degree. And with good reason: Jackson’s new relic model marks the first time the Rhoads family has allowed the original to be painstakingly examined and measured. The resulting Randy Rhoads Tribute guitar was unveiled at the 2010 winter NAMM show by Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian with Randy’s brother, Kelle, and sister, Kathy.

Buyers may find the guitar’s $12,619.56 price tag unusual, but it’s symbolic—Randy was born on 12/6/1956. Should you be among the exclusive group to own one of these instruments, you’ll be celebrating in more ways than one.

Jackson Concorde Randy Rhoads

Randall William “Randy” Rhoads (December 6, 1956 – March 19, 1982) was an American heavy metal guitarist who played with Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot. A devoted student of classical guitar, Rhoads often combined his classical music influences with his own heavy metal style. While on tour with Ozzy Osbourne, he would often seek out classical guitar tutors for lessons.

Rhoads started playing guitar at age 7 on his grandfather’s old Gibson “Army-Navy” classical acoustic guitar. According to Rhoads’ mother, he learned to play folk guitar, which was a popular way to learn guitar at the time, although he did not take lessons for very long. Rhoads was always evolving toward a hard rock/metal lead guitar style, but he was heavily influenced by classical music as well. This can be heard on Ozzy Osbourne tracks like “Dee” (an instrumental he named for his mother Delores), “Mr. Crowley”, “Diary of a Madman”, “You Can’t Kill Rock And Roll”, “Crazy Train” and “Revelation (Mother Earth)”.

Aged 17, Randy formed Quiet Riot with his best friend, Kelly Garni. Quiet Riot initially played in small bars in Hollywood and local parties in Burbank, eventually playing at the two main L.A. music clubs of the day — the Whisky a Go Go, and The Starwood. While the band had a strong following in the L.A. club scene, they were unable to secure a major recording contract in the United States. Eventually, however, the band was able to land a record deal with Japanese label CBS/Sony Records and Quiet Riot and Quiet Riot II were released in Japan.

But Randy Rhoads’ big break came when he was drafted in to play guitar for Black Sabbath legend Ozzy Osbourne.

Michael Jackson Concorde Hotel

While the King of Pop may no longer be among us, there is no doubt he will have eternal life in the memory of his fans and the fortunate few who had the chance to meet him in person.

One such lucky fan was Badrul Hisham, 46, food and beverage manager of Michael Jackson Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur. In 1996, when Michael Jackson performed in Malaysia, Badrul was the butler assigned to the star’s suite.

“He was a quiet but beautiful and polite man,” recalled Badrul.

Based upon his observation during the star’s week-long stay, Badrul remembered Jackson for wearing a “Do Not Disturb” sign around his neck and generally spoke very little. This demeanour changed when Badrul’s boss, Tan Sri Syed Yusof brought 15 children aged between five and seven to his suite.

“He was very happy to see them. He and the children made a mess of the place by spraying silly string all over the place and by popping the hundreds of balloons that we had put in there. You could see that this was a man who loved children,” said Badrul.

Badrul also confirmed the star’s playful nature.

“Jackson had a toy police car which he’d push around the suite. He would shoot at balloons with a pop gun. I also remember him sending his staff out to get video tapes of Tom and Jerry and Mickey Mouse,” he recalled.

Randy Rhoads Jackson Concorde

Grammy-winning producer, virtuoso musician, hit songwriter, legendary A&R executive and, of course, lovable American Idol judge – Randy Jackson has called upon every aspect of his staggering career to produce Randy Jackson’s Music Club, Vol. 1, his first solo album on his new label, Dream Merchant 21.
The album includes a stellar ensemble of artists and features the return of fellow Idol judge Paula Abdul who’s track “Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow” is her first release of new music in over a decade. Other guests on the album include Idol standouts Katherine McPhee and Elliot Yamin, U.K. phenom Joss Stone, country trailblazer Travis Tritt, pop-rock hitmaker Jason Mraz, ace country songwriter-producer John Rich (of Big & Rich), R&B luminary Sam Moore and Bon Jovi guitarist-harmonizer Richie Sambora. Randy also works once more with the incredible Mariah Carey who guests on the gospel track “Understand” along with Bebe Winans and Hezekiah Walker, Kim Burrell & Rance Allen. The collection also features major up and coming talent such as the wonderful Barbie Esco on the track “My R&B” and Kelli Selah on “Who’s Gonna Love You Now” among many others.

“I’m really pleased that a bunch of wonderful, talented people showed up,” Jackson said of his experience producing Randy Jackson’s Music Club, Vol. 1. “I’m really blessed by the way it all came together.”

“I love people who break boundaries and always create something new and fresh,” he points out. “I’m still true to my Southern roots.” The disc’s Tritt-Sambora collaboration, “Willing to Try” and the producer-musician’s work with John Rich underscore this restlessly inventive Southern sensibility.

Randy describes Randy Jackson’s Music Club, Vol. 1 as “a great way to announce my new label, hear from some great established and new artists, and share a little musical history,” adding “in a way, it’s autobiographical – it covers a lot of my life experience.”

“After everything I’ve done, I wasn’t dying to make a solo album,” the tireless music maker admits. “But this was an opportunity to bring together an amazing roster of artists and make a kind of potpourri of all the things I love. At the end of the day, I’m a song guy – and working on these songs has been a way to express my passion for music, which has never been stronger.”

Jackson Concorde Relic

Randy Rhoads’ Original Jackson Concorde Relic
Although Rhoads was often photographed with his first Concorde V, some players may be surprised to learn it has a 3-way pickup selector that was usually out of view in concert photos. Jackson’s Mike Shannon isn’t certain whether Rhoads made specific electronics requests, but the Tribute Relic features Duncan SH4 (bridge) and SH-2N humbuckers and Les Paul-style controls.
