Rhaad Rabbani, aka R.O.D., aka Frhaado, born 1985 in Dhaka Bangladesh, is a legend of Williams College class of 2008.
Among the elements that makes him a legend are: trade-mark knuckle bashing, head butting, skills with the guitar and keyboard, his hair, his tackling when playing soccer, his interest in Avram Grant, interests in Bruce Lee & martial arts, his other superhuman feats, his refusal to wear a jacket in the dead cold of the Williamstown winter, interest in J.R.R. Tolkien's books, knowledge of Sindarin (common Elvish) and the Black speech of Mordor (e.g. "Ash nazg durbatulï¿½k"), his Ian McKellen impersonation (as Gandalf), Orlando Bloom impersonation (as Legolas), Elijah Wood impersonation (as Frodo), Sylvester Stallone impersonation (as Rocky and Rambo), his connection with the greatest name in Baroque music: Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern -schplenden -schlitter -crasscrenbon -fried -digger -dangle -dungle -burstein -von -knacker -thrasher -apple -banger -horowitz -ticolensic -grander -knotty -spelltinkle -grandlich -grumblemeyer -spelterwasser -kï¿½rstlich -himbleeisen -bahnwagen -gutenabend -bitte -eine -nï¿½rnburger -bratwustle -gerspurten -mit -zweimache -luber -hundsfut -gumberaber -shï¿½nendanker -kalbsfleisch -mittler -raucher von Hautkopft of Ulm.
Much, and yet too little, is known about Mr. Rabbani. But stories about this amazing man will be told for generations to come.
His mystique is only matched by that of Ted Wiles.
