Randy Bradbury (born September 20, 1964 in Long Beach, California) is the current bass guitar player for the Californian punk band Pennywise.[1] He joined in October 1996 when founding bass player Jason Thirsk took a leave of absence to go to rehab for alcohol addiction. Randy was supposed to switch to rhythm guitar when Thirsk returned, but it never happened due to Thirsk's suicide in 1996. Randy played bass for early punk pioneers The Falling Idols, bass for the last Tender Fury album, as well as playing bass on the first two albums by One Hit Wonder before leaving to join Pennywise. He has a tattoo of Jack Bruce on his arm. In between creative endeavors, Randy Bradbury enjoys connecting with his friends and fanbase using the social media platform Facebook to rant about social issues, leading followers to coin him as Rantdy (USA) or Ranty (EU). His followers, being true and loyal to the man with the wide stance of bass playing, have been labeled as Bradberries or Randiants.
