Biography

Biographyby Barry Weber

Though many bands have succeeded in earning the hatred of parents and media worldwide throughout the past few decades, arguably only such acts as Alice Cooper, Judas Priest, and Marilyn Manson have tied the controversial record of Ozzy Osbourne. The former Black Sabbath frontman has been highly criticized over his career, mostly due to rumors denouncing him as a ... Read more in Amazon's Ozzy Osbourne Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock guitars greatest moment!! 5 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
At last Ozzy and Randy's albums have been released with some added extras and the original bass and drum tracks from Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley put back in the mix. Finally youger rockers can hear these classic albums how they where supposed to sound and its about time too!!! The bass and drums sound so warm and the guitar feels more prominent than I remember on the original recordings but I am not complaining about that, it is Randy Rhoads after all!!! I love this album so much and Randy's playing is stellar throughout and the fact that Ozzy still plays many of these tracks live is testament to the brilliance of the playing and writing throughout. Too many favourites too mention here and there is no such thing as a bad Randy Rhoads song or solo the man was a genius. How can you argue with Mr Crowley, I Don't Know, Suicide Solution, Revelation Mother Earth, Dee and Goodbye To Romance. The extra tracks are great too - Looking At Me Looking At You was on the last remasters of these cd's but sounds so much better with the original bass and drum tracks. A real gem is the extra track is Goodbye To Romance guitar and vocal mix which is a version of this song with just Ozzy's vocal and Randy's guitar and this highlights what a gorgeous song this was, and the solo remains one of my favourites of all time!! The last extra track is called RR and is a recording of Randy playing some solos and riffs in the studio. This was very illuminating and a real treat for Randy fans like me. If you have never heard this cd or Diary of A Madman then this is the time to buy them. Thanks Ozzy for writing the wrongs of the previous versions of these releases and finally doing justice to rock musics greatest ever guitarist!! Ps my only gripe is that the expensive box set edition of these releases is the only one with the dvd documentary included and as any stuff by Randy is very rare I would love to see this released seperately!! RIP Randy

1.0 out of 5 stars RE-RECORDED not Re-Mastered 6 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Let's get one thing straight. Blizzard of Ozz, as recorded by Ozzy's original post-Sabbath band of Randy Rhoads, Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake is a truly classic Metal album, and one that deserves a place in any Metal fan's collection.
This abomination masquerading as that album is not the same thing.
As is now common knowledge, the bass and drum tracks were re-recorded for the latest reissue of both 'Blizzard' and the follow up album, 'Diary of a Madman' due to ongoing legal disputes between the Osbournes and the former bassist and drummer, Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake respectively. It is bad enough that the Osbournes did this just to punish their ex-colleagues, but what is totally unforgivable is that these albums are packaged as though they are the original recordings, when they are nothing of the sort. You only find out the truth once you have opened the CD booklet and there, on the inside back cover, in *small* letters, the deed is revealed.
No disrespect is intended to the musicians who were asked to perform the impossible (bassist Rob Trujillo and drummer Mike Bordin) but you cannot go back to a twenty year old recording, overdub parts of it and expect people not to notice! Does Ozzy really think his fans are that daft? Whatever dispute he has with his old bandmates why should we, the fans who supported him for years, be insulted in this way? Furthermore, the fact that they have chosen to dub new musicians on the album insults the memory of the great Randy Rhoads, whose guitar parts now sit uncomfortably alongside those of players he never met!

1.0 out of 5 stars Ozzy values his cash more than his albums. 14 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Why?
I for one cannot believe that the Osbournes have taken this classic album and ruined it like this. I'm not sure what is worse, them attempting to pass this new recording off as the original, allowing the TRUE album to vanish from existance or for the petty way and reasons for which this was done. Removing Daisley and Kerslake and then including a credit for them is very childish.
I think it is a tragedy that this was allowed to happen. No doubt Ozzy and Sharon would say that the music is their's to do with as they please....true, but it's the fans who buy it. It's a great shame that future fans of Ozzy who come to buy this album will be forced to listen to this version, and not hear the definitive original. .
Please buy the previous release of this album and enjoy it as it was meant to be.

1.0 out of 5 stars LIKE taking a leak on Randy roads grave! 17 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
Shame on you Ozzy and Sharon! god knows i love ozzy for his musical stature, but this remake/remix is a terrible mistake.
For money, Drums and bass tracks were re-recorded with ozzy's actual band, susbstituting Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake's tracks , both ex Uriah Heep rythm section, nothing less. These guys sued ozzy for not giving them royalties on this cd, and it has been a years long legal trail. I believe Ozzy is rich enough and should give them their royalties.
Daisley and Kerslake's sound is far superior in technique, uniqueness, and licks . Just listen to the original lp's or the first two editions of this cd! they are an amazing rythm section. Also, producer Max' norman's production was butchered on this remake/remixed frankenstein.
This brutal massacre has also been completed on Ozzy's second solo gem, and the last studio album with Randy roads: Diary of a madman.
Doesn ozzy say that Randy is his great beloved friend? this remake is like taking a leak on Randy roads' grave! . Find and buy the first 2 editions of this cd cause they will dissapear from stores for good.
