|ROCK SUPER BOWL XIV
TANGERINE BOWL - ORLANDO - FLORIDA
MARCH 20, 1982
|After playing a gig at The Knoxville, Tennessee Worlds Fair on March 18, The
Ozzy Osbourne Band headed to Orlando, Florida to play Rock Super Bowl XIV
with Headliners, Foreinger and support bands UFO and Bryan Adams. The tour
bus stopped in Leesburg, Florida just North of Orlando at a Ranch Home
with a private air strip. The tour bus driver "Andrew Aycock" was also a pilot,
so Andrew, Randy, and the bands hairdresser "Rachel Youngblood"
boarded a single engine, 4 seater Beechcraft for a Joyride.
The pilot Andrew Aycock buzzed Ozzy's tour bus 4 times trying to wake him up.
The planes wing clipped the bus and the plane crashed into a house
and all 3 passengers were killed instantly.
March 18, 1982 The Knoxville Worlds Fair would be
Randy Rhoads last show. A memorial was built at the spot of the
plane crash in Leesburg, Florida.
Ozzy and the rest of the band had to cancel the next 8 shows including
Orlando's Rock Super Bowl XIV on March 20th and the Miami Orange Bowl show on
March 21st and was replaced by Orlando native Pat Travers.
The Diary of a Madman Tour resumed on April 1, 1982 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
with new lead guitarist Bernie Torme of The Gillan Band.
Despite the plane crash and the loss of Randy Rhoads, OZZY was back up and
touring only 12 days after the crash.
