GuitarWorld.com has learned that former QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow has refused to participate in an upcoming documentary about his former friend and QUIET RIOT bandmate Randy Rhoads.

DuBrow had originally agreed to be interviewed for the as-yet-untitled Rhoads film, according to director Peter Margolis, and even provided private photos and videos.

"Four days after this great conversation in which he was enthusiastic and funny, I get this e-mail that was almost like a form letter," Margolis tells Guitar World magazine. "And it reads, 'Thank you for offering to have me in the movie, but I am going to have to decline to participate. I wish you and the Rhoads family the best of luck.' It was so impersonal. I really don't know what made him change his mind."

With the blessings of the family of late OZZY OSBOURNE / QUIET RIOT guitarist Randy Rhoads, Dakota Pictures and director Peter Margolis began filming the "Randy Rhoads Documentary" on March 19 at the Mountain View Cemetery. In hopes to fully capture the significance of the 25th anniversary of Randy's passing, the filmmakers interviewed as many of Randy's fans as possible.

For more information, visit the film's MySpace page.

In 1982, Rhoads, the then-lead guitarist for OZZY OSBOURNE, and two others were killed at Flying Baron Estates, just outside Leesburg, Florida, when their small plane struck Osbourne's tour bus, then crashed into a mansion.

Peter Margolis, the director of the Randy Rhoads Documentary, is a stand up guy. Peter was a student of Randy's and his resume' reads like a list of every award show and TV show done over the last 15-20 years. Peter truley, is not in it for the money. He's highly respected in the Entertainment Industry and Peter's only intent behind this Documentary is to remember Randy Rhoads. Kevin Dubrow needs to get over himself. While others fight to remember Randy Rhoads, Kevin just fights. Hey Kevin, you might as well face it your a d*** with a rug.
