I've just heard the sad news that the ex-Budgie guitarist John Thomas has passed away last night. As RR fans we know the connection and friendship they made when out on the road together touring in 1980. RIP J.T

""When John was in the band, we were touring with Ozzy [Osbourne], and John was big friends with [Ozzy's then-guitarist] Randy Rhoads. And Randy used to stay up at his place in Birmingham and all that, and they were mates. It's all about guitars, isn't it? [Laughs] They were guitar mad, weren't they? And they were good friends, and they even messed around and taped a few things together."

Who'd not love to hear those tapes?

Sad news about big John, a very talented yet underrated guitarist. Had the pleasure of seeing Budgie supporting Blizzard of Ozz in 1980, also saw them supporting Ozzy on his 1982 UK tour. Also seen them a couple of times headlining over the years. I can still remember when i first heard about Randy's death on the Friday Rock Show, and Tommy Vance played Budgie's Superstar in a tribute to Randy.
