Randy Jackson’s catchphrases and over-the-top enthusiasm were a staple of “American Idol” for twelve seasons. Above are some of his best bon mots, in all their ridiculous glory. Below is a video of Randy playing with Journey, because did you guys know he played with Journey? We aren’t sure he’s ever really mentioned it.

Just joking. He brings it up at least once a season. But in all seriousness, his bass solo in the video is pretty awesome.

We kid because we love, dawg. Happy 58th birthday, Randy Jackson!
