Any settings? Like crazy train, grainy distortion. Can the jvm do this? Btw I'm using the jvm2 so keep that in mind. I've tried the unorthodox tone settings but there still wasn't that grainy sound that randy is so well known for.

Randy Rhoads used an MXR Distortion + and Marshalls.
When I think of his album tones its actually multi-tracked playing the same thing 4 to six times and panning the tracks. Yet he used wah, talk box, EQ, chorus, reverb, flanger, phaser, octave harmonizors but his main secret to his album tones is layering, sometimes the same guitar other times using various guitars.

Personally I don't try to nail his exact tone but just dial in some high gain and go for it.

Hmm. That would definitely explain a lot. I knew he triple tracked solos but didn't know he tracked riffs so many times.

Each rhythm guitar track was 4 tracks in unison, sometimes 6, then the solos were layered as well.
Off topic but Marilin Manson's;
"The Beautiful People" guitar riff was layered 32 tracks all playing the same part, its a tried and true way of creating a huge sound but you gotta play tight or it gets messy.
