For serious fans and collectors, the limited edition 30th Anniversary deluxe boxed set houses the restored and remastered vinyl and CD editions of Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman, the “Ozzy Live” compact disc
This new “Thirty Years After The Blizzard” DVD chronicles Ozzy’s years with Randy Rhoads features previously unseen footage of Ozzy and Randy filmed in 1981 & 1982; it incorporates rare archival photos and films;
lol. Maybe it wasn't about him in the title, but even the OP starts to change directions by the time you get to the bottom.
I know this thread wasn't started about Randy. But, Randy was a huge calming influence on Ozzy.
yeah, he makes it look too easy.
the notes just roll off his guitars like they are coming straight from his fingers. His playing was effortless.And he was a real down to earth guy too from everything I have ever read.
