Legendary musician Randy Rhoads recorded his greatest ever electric guitar solo on Ozzy Osborne track Crazy Train, it has been claimed.

In honour of the arrival of the newly-released Randy Rhoads 1974 Les Paul Custom, guitar manufacturer Gibson has listed what it considers to be the axeman's finest moments.

It named his performance on Crazy Train as being marginally better than classic electric guitar solos performed on songs such as Flying High Again, Revelation (Mother Earth) and Mr Crowley.

"What makes Randy's solo on Crazy Train so brilliant is that it not only captures the song's message of uncontrollable mayhem - it actually amplifies the hysteria," the Gibson website explained.

Gibson is not the only manufacturer to have been inspired by the influence of Rhoads - Jackson has also produced electric guitar models named after the heavy metal icon.

Its range includes the Jackson Rhoads RR3, an electric guitar which is available in transparent blue.
