Competing with the almighty Randy Rhoads is no picnic. It’ll take a truly special guitarist to defeat the late, great Rhoads, for the Ozzy Osbourne / Quiet Riot shredder has already eliminated Iron Maiden’s Adrian Smith and Between the Buried and Me’s Paul Waggoner by substantial margins.

Tool guitarist Adam Jones just scored a massive win over one of the world’s most beloved guitarists, Slash. Jones’ experimental style has helped mold Tool into a group of the highest accolades, and because of this, Jones was able to defeat Slash, along with Machine Head’s Phil Demmel in Round 1.
