Randy Rhoads Gone Too Soon : Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Randy Rhoads

“LIFE WON’T WAIT”               OZZY OSBOURNE

This Tuesday, Ozzy will release the DVD, “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne” produced by his son, Jack.  Teenagers nowadays picture Ozzy as “that guy from the MTV Show” or see him acting silly in commercials with Justin Bieber.     Ozzy has been making incredible music for the last 40 years and he’s STILL going strong.  This single from 2011’s Scream CD is full of positive energy.  “Life Won’t Wait” sounds current, relevant, and another great song in Ozzy’s illustrious career.


Every second you throw away
Every minute of every day
Don’t get caught in a myriad
Because life won’t wait for you
No, life won’t wait for you, my friend.


Stay strong stay true be brave – it all comes down to you

“CRAZY TRAIN (AFTER HOURS)”          OZZY (FT RANDY RHOADS)

An awesome extended version of Ozzy’s anthem that features   Randy Rhoads’ guitar magic.    Randy played lead guitar for Quiet Riot before joining Ozzy’s band.   His style influenced by his classical guitar background changed rock music.   So many classic riffs in such a brief career.   Randy was reportedly “afraid of flying” and tragically died in a plane crash outside of Orlando.



“LONELY IS THE WORD”            BLACK SABBATH

Keeping on the Ozzy theme, Black Sabbath, along with Led Zeppelin, started the Heavy Metal genre.    When Ozzy was dismissed from Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio was brought in and they released “Heaven & Hell” in 1980.    The CD went multi-platinum and featured  “Lonely Is The Word” as a beautiful power ballad highlighted by Tommy Iommi’s finest guitar solo.
