Default Randy Castillo

Ok guys, unless the search engine messed up it doesn't seem that this name was on. What are your opinions on this talented drummer who passed away too soon ?

Frankly speaking I haven't heard anything from him besides with ozzy, but I just loved the power and showmanship of the guy, and not talking about all the fills he put in old ozzy songs when playing live (I don't know, mr. Crowley etc)

I got to see Randy play at this "after hours" club here in L.A. and he was awesome. Playing a single kick, 1 rack and 2 floors, it was 1/2 of his tour kit and he was just a monster on it.

I enjoyed Randy's playing.

I have never seen him live, but I have a couple concerts on bootleg of Ozzy with him. He was very solid.

I would have liked to see or hear some of his work with Motley Crue. I am not quite sure that he had the style to fill Tommy's shoes. Tommy is truly underrated.

randy is a big influence on my playing....his power and skill were awesome...i went to see motley crue in 2000 on the maximum rock tour, hoping to see him play, just to find out samantha maloney was playing....not to bash sam, but i went to see RANDY.....

loved his playing on the ozzy material.....he was a very tasteful player, and very skilled showman.....he passed on way too early.......

rest in peace, drum brother......

I listed Randy in the "Favorite Drummers" thread. I like his style and he is a very powerfull player. And I loved his drum sound; different and very big. I have seen Ozzy twice. I saw him in 96 expecting to see Deen Castronova ( another one in my favorites list ) but saw this bald guy. About 30 seconds in to the first song I could tell it was Randy. Last month was 4 years ago that he passed away.I was shocked when I found out.

Randy is already listed on the Drummerworld Wishlist. It's a list of drummers that Bernhard will consider putting on the site at some time.

One of my favorites. I always have named him as one of my top 6 influences. Great heavy, powerful player w/a cool style. I always liked how he accented a lot w/snare and hi-hat as opposed to snare/crash or snare/china only. It is very cool and different.
No Rest For The Wicked is probably my favorite drumming album from Randy. I love the Ultimate Sin dvd w/Randy's solo. The solo is on Youtube. Great rock drummer. Loved his drum sound also.

Yes I have Budokan. It may be me but I am not crazy about Mike Bordins drumming. Nobody's perfect but he seems to rush a lot.
Just not in to it. Sorry.

The more I think about it, I cant understand how drummers from bands that have been around 5-10 years are on this site. But Randy, one of the best hard rock drummers of the 80's & 90's, the drummer that played on the most cd's (3) and did the most cd supporting tours (4) and was the drummer to play the longest (15+ years) w/Ozzy Osbourne gets no recognition? That I dont understand.

I really liked Randy's playing. But, without a doubt, I enjoy Mike's playing better. Definitely more GROOVE!

Again, I am a huge fan of Randy's. I am not bashing him at all.

There are a lot of drummers that don't get recognition on the site. I'm still trying to figure out how none of the Motown drummers from the 50's and 60's like Benny Benjamin, Uriel Jones, and Richard "Pistol" Allen are missed too, but I have to remember that doing a site like this is an undertaking and to add all the drummers that deserve to be on it would take some time.

I have the Budokan dvd and to me Mikes playing seemed very rushed at times. Not consistent at all it seemed. I just could not get into his playing at all. Just opinion obviously, but he just didnt excite me when I saw him play.

I thought Randy's playing was very smooth. He was a great entertainer in my book. You don't get hired to play for Ozzy if you have nothing to offer the band. Let's be real.

I miss Randy very much. Got to know him very well through the late 80's
and 90's. His passing was awful... he's greatly missed.

(Will post some pics when I can...)

An underrated drummer.

I met Randy when I was 18, and he did a drum clinic at the store I was working at after school.

He was really nice guy. He may not have had the chops of more well known drummers, but he did a great job with Ozzy. I love his playing on the "No Rest for the Wicked" album. I saw him numerous times with Ozzy, and he always was very solid, tasteful fills, he could play for the song, and yet still throw in some chops when appropriate.

I did see a video of him with Motely Crue, and even though it was well before he was diagnosed with cancer, you could tell something wasn't right about him, His playing was off, and it wasn't the same great groove he had with Ozzy. I'd have to think the cancer was affecting him long before he knew it was there.

So sad when he died.

I was able to go to the memorial concert for him they had in Hollywood. It was pretty cool how many drummers and musicians came out to pay tribute to him.

Randolpho Francisco Castillo - well known as Randy Castillo!

I was listening to Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears - very good album. Randy was a powerful groover, played for the song with such feel, fast and heavy fills. I donīt mind if Randy was or not a technical drummer...he did the job and dead right!

Rock In Peace - Randy!

I always like Randy's playing. Very different to that of other players from that era. Listen to his work on Lita Ford's "Dancing On The Edge".
