Randell Young, small-business owner and blues guitarist, got angry about the power abuses and waste that he believes typify many large companies. So, about six years ago, he attended a meeting in Palm Desert to hear oilman and corporate financier T. Boone Pickens speak. Young joined Pickens' nascent United Shareholders Assn. and has never looked back. He has become a fixture at annual meetings of companies his association has targeted as light on shareholder rights.

Blues guitarist and singer Randell Young, owner of Randell's nightclub and restaurant in Santa Ana, says he was optimistic about the kind of club scene he would find in Orange County when he moved here from Washington in 1982.

Blues guitarist, restaurateur and stockholders' rights activist Randell Young became the first announced candidate for mayor Thursday. Young called the City Council's unanimous vote to increase the utility tax to fund a new jail "the last straw" in his decision to shift from a full-time entrepreneur and musician to a candidate. "I'd rather not be a politician per se," Young, 39, said. Incumbent Mayor Daniel H. Young, who is no relation, has said he will not run for reelection in November.
