Documentary About Late OZZY OSBOURNE/MÖTLEY CRÜE Drummer RANDY CASTILLO To Premiere In Beverly Hills

September 4, 2014

"The Life, Blood And Rhythm Of Randy Castillo", a rock documentary produced by Cinema 1 Film & FX and 18 Lights Pictures, has been selected to open the Red Nation Film Festival in Beverly Hills, California on November 4.

"The Life, Blood And Rhythm Of Randy Castillo" is the story of the late, legendary drummer who played with Ozzy Osbourne, MÖTLEY CRÜE, Lita Ford and other rock and roll icons of the 1980s and 1990s. The film features superstar interviews, concert footage, home movies and behind-the-scenes video of this bigger-than-life Apache musician whose unshakable passion carried him from the wrong side of the tracks to the top of the charts — only to be taken by cancer at the height of his career.

The film is narrated by Lita Ford.

Said director Wynn Ponder: "It's been a magical journey, working with Lita and interviewing Randy's bandmates, family and friends, but the real story is about how Randy's generous spirit never changed, even when his formidable musical talent made him the first internationally famous Apache rock and roll drummer."

He continued: "Randy Castillo was that rare creature known as a 'good man,' a confidante and close friend to many ... compassionate and caring with everyone he met. Some interviewees tell stories of Randy's supernatural powers, which they attribute to his Native American spirituality."

Part musical legend, part personal journey and part shamanic mythos, "The Life, Blood And Rhythm Of Randy Castillo" ultimately reveals a seldom-seen layer of humanity behind the glittered walls of the rock industry.
