Kelly Garni's 'Randy Rhoads' Eight String Bass
« on: October 28, 2009, 10:50:59 PM »
Built a bass for Kelly Garni (Quiet Riot) earlier this year. We went to the US to hand deliver it, meet Kelly, and the Rhoads family. Had a great time! Met some other muso's over there, including Vinnie Paul, DJ Ashba (GnR guitarist), Joey Belladona, etc etc

Kelly was the original bass player in Quiet Riot with Randy Rhoads.

Still under a media embargo until Dec 17th 2009 (so no full photos and details yet), but here are some sound bytes ABOUT the bass...
Partial interview from Rockstar Weekly, a Canadian zine.

You mentioned that there is going to be a famous bass. Can you tell me more about the guitar?

What does this bass mean to you?

I can see how it would remind you that he?s always with you.
