Ozzy Osbourne (Blizzard Of Ozz) 1980
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_10star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1980BlizzardofOzz.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1980BlizzardofOzzBack.jpg)

Blizzard Of Ozz is the debut album of Ozzy Osbourne fresh off from his stint with Black Sabbath. It's also the debut of Guitar God Randy Rhoads who left then, little known Quiet Riot to join up with Ozzy and company. Rounding out the album is Bob Daisley on Bass and on Drums is Lee Kerslake. For the tour, Rudy Sarzo (Quite Riot) would take over on Bass and Tommy Aldridge on Drums.

Blizzard is loaded with instant classics from top to bottom from I Don't Know to Crazy Train to Goodbye To Romance to Mr. Crowley to Revelation (Mother Earth). And Randy gets to shine on the acoustic gem Dee, which is a tribute to his Mother Delores. Also on Blizzard is the very controversial Suicide Solution, which has been blamed for the suicide of a 14 year kid who shot himself after listening to Ozzy records.

It's strange, but I wasn't so much a fan of Ozzy, as I was of Randy. I worshiped him when Blizzard and Diary Of A Madman came out. I think I worshiped Randy more than I did Eddie Van Halen at the time. There are so many great riffs on this record courtesy of Randy. This is one of the earliest albums that I literally tore apart learning as much as I could on the guitar. I have to point out that now days, I prefer the live version of Crazy Train found on the Tribute album. One listen to that and you will hear why Randy was such a great performer live and that it just makes the studio version pale in comparison.

I absolutely recommend this to anyone that has never picked it up. But be wary, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne pulled a fast one on unsuspecting fans for the 2002 reissue wherein they replaced the Bass and Drum parts with then bandmates Robert Trujillo (Metallica) and Mike Bordin (Faith No More). Did they really think that fans wouldn't object to this? Not cool at all.  Ozzy has said that he had nothing to do with removing the parts. I tend to believe him because Sharon is the puppet master and most likely the one lay all the blame on.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. Co-MVP goes to...Crazy Train and Mr. Crowley. Album cover is classic. Somebody actually put some thought into the making of this one. I can't say the same for his next 2 album covers though.

Final note: It's mind boggling that this album is not on Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Not only does it belong on the list, I personally have it in the Top 20 of all time. This is just further proof that Rolling Stone is clueless about all things music.

Ozzy Osbourne (Diary Of A Madman) 1981
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_10star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1981DiaryOfAMadman.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1981DiaryOfAMadmanBack.jpg)


Diary Of A Madman is a fantastic follow up to Blizzard. Even though Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge were in the touring band at the time, they did not play on the album, even though they are credited as so. It's still the same lineup for Blizzard performing on here. This is also the last album with Randy Rhoads before his life was cut short to a freak plane crash while on tour. He accomplished so much, leaving a lasting legacy with both albums. Amazing guitar player and musician.

As before, both the Bass and Drum parts were removed and replaced with Robert Trujillo (Metallica) and Mike Bordin (Faith No More) for the 2002 reissues.

I highly recommend picking up Diary Of A Madman. It's an amazing record. If you do decide to actually give this one a shot, keep in mind that they are re-releasing both Diary and Blizzard as a 2 disc Deluxe 30th Anniversary Editions with demos, rarities and previously unreleased live material sometime in 2011.  The good news is that the Deluxe Editions has the original masters, with both Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake's Bass and Drum parts reinserted.

Fave Songs: Over The Mountain, Flying High Again, You Can't Kil Rock And Roll, Tonight , S.A.T.O. and Diary Of A Madman. Co-MVP goes to Diary Of A Madman, Flying High Again and Tonight. The outro guitar solo in Tonight is one of my all time faves ever. The harmonic squeals are goosebumps inducing.

The album cover is not one that I'm too fond of. It's too cartoonish to my liking. Yes, it's classic in the sense that it's identifiable as an Ozzy album. Clearly he is having fun and it's showing his sense of humor. But I seriously doubt that if he were to make this album today, they would not go in this direction for the cover.

Ozzy Osbourne (Bark At The Moon) 1983

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1983BarkattheMoon.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1983BarkattheMoonBack.jpg)

This is NOT a review

Yep. It's true. I don't have Bark At The Moon. I know some of the songs from here, but I never got the album back when it dropped and I have never bothered picking it up in Secondhand stores, even though I see the CD's in the bargin bins all the time.

Only thing I know about this one is that it's Jake E. Lee's first album with Ozzy since the passing of Randy Rhoads. But he wasn't the first to succeed him. That honor goes to Brad Gillis (Night Ranger) who took on guitar duties during the same tour that took the life of Randy.

Another very interestintg story that I've heard for years is that Jake wasn't even Ozzy's first choice for Bark At The Moon. He actually had 2 choices, Jake and George Lynch (Dokken). He chose George initially and then later decided to go with Jake. The rest is history. I've always wondered how differently things would have been had George stayed with Ozzy .....We will never know.

Rounding out the band was Bob Daisley on Bass, Tommy Aldridge on Drums and Don Airey on Keyboards.

First time my Mom ever heard the song So Tired, she was like "that's Ozzy?" She liked the song and gave me her approval to listen to him whereas before she was against it because of the satanic connotations of Ozzy's personae.

Ozzy Osbourne (The Ultimate Sin) 1986
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1986TheUltimateSin.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1986TheUltimateSinBack.jpg)


The Ultimate Sin, originally titled Killer Of Giants, is the last album to feature Jake E. Lee on guitars. On Bass is Phil Soussan and on Drums is the mighty Randy Castillo, with Mike Moran on keyboards.

I picked this album up for one reason and one reason only: Shot In The Dark. It was the best f*cking song I had heard in a long time when it hit. The main riff and the little bridge before the solo was so damn cool with the slides. The entire song just kicked ass and I found a new guitar god to worship in Jake. I was aware of him with Bark At The Moon, but because I never picked it up, I was still in the dark about him as a player.

The album as a whole is definitely in the mold of Glam Metal, very pop-centric and in line with other Hair bands of the day (KISS, Motley Crue, Poison, Ratt, etc...). The production/mix I think fails in large part because of Producer Ron Nevison. It's no secret how much I hate the guy and what he did on KISS (Crazy Nights) 1987, which I consider to be one of the worst KISS records ever.

I have to clarify that I don't hate the songs on The Ultimate Sin. And the guitar playing by Jake is nothing short of f*cking awesome. My bone of contention is in the production, sound wise. So, do I recommend this one? It's hard to say. If you want rip roaring solos and tasty riffs, then hell f*cking yeah pick it up. But a Pop-Ozzy may be a bit much and the mix is something you will have to consider in the long run. The man himself has disowned the album all together, to the point of actually removing it from his catalog. So, take from that what you will.

Jakes ferocious guitar playing gives this a much higher rating than it should get with Nevison's horrid production.

Fave songs: The Ultimate Sin, Lightning Strikes and Shot In The Dark.

FYI, that's Dweezil Zappa in the Shot In The Dark video for those that have never seen the video before. And if you don't know who Dweezil is, then I suggest you turn in your music credentials at the door on the way out. The album cover ftw!!  I've always loved the artwork for this one.

Tribute is a Live, double album featuring Randy Rhoads. Normally I wouldn't add Live albums to a Poll that's asking what the Greatest Album of All Time is, as it's usually for studio releases. But Tribute absolutely belongs in the Poll for 3 reasons. 1) Randy Rhoads. That alone is enough to get it onto the list of Greatest Of All Time. 2) It's the best Live album ever. 3) This album is the reason why Jake E. Lee quit Ozzy's band.

The first 2 are self explanatory. Now, about the Jake-quitting-the-band-over-this-album story. It really depends on who is telling the story. For years it's always been quoted as fact. But I can't really say with certainty if it's actually why he quit. But the story I keep hearing over and over is that immediately after The Ultimate Sin tour wrapped, Ozzy and company were set to start their follow up album, only for Ozzy to get sidetracked with putting together Tribute, in honor of his best friend Randy Rhoads.

Ozzy became so consumed with doing it right ,that pretty much everything else was put on hold. Jake apparently didn't like this and got increasingly frustrated with trying to work with Ozzy on their own material, eventually just throwing in the towel and walking away. It's unfortunate that he chose to leave, because this was the pinnacle of Jake's career.

As for Tribute the Live concert, it's just an amazing performance by everyone involved, including Rudy Sarzo on Bass and Tommy Aldridge on Drums. Like any concert release before and after, it's not "complete". This album isn't from 1 show, but taken from 3 different shows. Personally I could care less if it were from 20. It's just f*cking awesome.

And rounding out the album is a studio outtake of Randy working on his soon to be classic song Dee. For me this was the first time I had ever heard the man speak. So to hear him making suggestions about the song was pretty cool for me to hear.

Steal Away is for you drummers out there. Tommy's drum solo is f*cking wicked cool. The double bass work is unparalleled. Fancy feet indeed.  But the highlite for me is the extended guitar solo from Randy on Suicide Solution. Unf*ckingbelievable.

I mentioned before that to me the best version of Crazy Train is found on here. One listen to this one and it's very hard to go back to the original studio version and something that still holds true for me to this day.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. Co-MVP goes to.....Crazy Train and Suicide Solution. Duh.

The album cover f*cking kicks ass!! The back cover kicks ass! The Gatefold kicks ass! The inner sleeves kick ass! And if you try to take this particular vinyl off my hands, be certain I will kick your f*cking ass!! (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_biggrin.gif)

Ozzy Osbourne (No Rest For The Wicked) 1988
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_04star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1988NoRestfortheWicked.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1988NoRestfortheWickedBackCD.jpg)


No Rest For The Wicked is the debut of Ozzy's longest tenured axe slinger Zakk Wylde. Returning on skins is Randy Castillo and long time Ozzy collaborator, Bob Daisley on Bass. Rounding out the album is John Sinclair on Keyboards. Geezer Bulter (Black Sabbath) would take over Bass on the accompanying tour as well as making appearances in the videos.

I like Zakk and this album, but it's not perfect. I think the problem I have at times with No Rest For The Wicked is that a few songs are interchangable because of how Zakk plays. By that, I mean he has a certain style of playing that resorts to certains licks and riffs over and over. Add that to a couple of songs that aren't strong to begin with, gives it a lower rating. If you have already listened to Zakk's playing style previously, you will know what I'm talking about. I think as great as songs like Miracle Man and Crazy Babies are, Zakk really gets to shine on the "slower" songs like Fire In The Sky and Hero because it forces him to change his approach to playing.

As for Ozzy, his voice sounds amazing here. He definitely needed to step up his game after going "pop" with The Ultimate Sin. The production of the album is also a huge step up with it's aggressive and crunchy sound.

The 2002 Remastered Edition comes with 2 bonus tracks: The Liar and Miracle Man (Live)

Fave Songs: Miracle Man, Crazy Babies, Breaking All The Rules, Fire In The Sky and Hero. MVP goes to Fire In The Sky

Album cover is cool.

Ozzy Osbourne (No More Tears) 1991
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_10star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1991NoMoreTears.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1991NoMoreTearsBack1.jpg)


Ozzy has peaks and valleys just like anyone in the business. But he seems to consistently come up with masterpieces at will. First there was Blizzard Of Ozz and Diary Of A Madman. Then there was Tribute. And now here, he gives us another masterpiece.

No More Tears is just that...a masterpiece. To me this is the last great album that Ozzy put together. It's perfect from start to finish and the tracklist is spot-on. It mirrors his career of peaks and valleys taking you on a musical journey throughout. Ozzy has never sounded better. His voice is strong and full of gutso. Zakk Wylde's playing is blistering and full of tasty riffs that you can build a house on. Bob Daisley returns on Bass as well as Randy Castillo on Drums.

It's a weird thing about the making of this album. Even though Bob played on the album, Mike Inez was technically a member of Ozzy's band as the Bass player. And on top of that, he wrote, hands down, the greatest f*cking Bassline ever for the song No More Tears. Am I wrong? Hell to the f*cking no. I rank it right up there alongside that of Under Pressure and Eyes Without A Face. So, even though Mike wrote his signature riff, the entire album is all Bob on Bass. Crazy.

This album has so many great songs that it's really more like a Greatest Hits record than anything else. All the songs are tight and sound great. This is definitely Ozzy's best sounding album from a writing and production standpoint. I can easily put this along side that of Blizzard, Diary and Tribute.

Fave Songs: Every last f*cking one of them. Picking a MVP is just absolutely pointless and an exercise in futility if you ask me. Can't just choose one...or two...or three.....I can try though. Mr. Tinkertrain. Mama, I'm Coming Home. No More Tears. S.I.N. Hellraiser. Road To Nowhere. ****, this is hard.

That's what she said. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/rimshot.gif)

Album cover is just so cool. Simple, yet effective in setting a mellow mood that's nowhere indicative of what's inside on the disc. Misdirection. Nice. That's what I was expecting when I picked it up and got something else all together.

Ozzmosis. Ugh. I'm not really a fan of this one at all in spite of what other fans say. Only Ozzy and Zakk return from their last album. On board for Bass duties is the one and only Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath) and Deen Castronovo on Drums. On Keyboards is Rick Wakeman (Yes). Yes, THAT Rick Wakeman (pun soooooo not intended).

There's really only a few songs that are worthy of my time and yours. The best of course being See You On The Other Side. This song has all the trademarks of vintage Ozzy. Everything you can ask for is here. Perry Mason is a fantastic song to open the album up with. And I just Want You is another great song. Rounding out the best is Old LA Tonight. After that, the pickings are pretty slim. Most of the songs just feel incomplete for one reason or another. Also, the production seems lifeless and cold here. And I think the mix for the bulk of the album is pretty bad as well.

The 2002 Reissue comes with 2 additional bonus tracks for Whole World's Fallin' Down and Aimee.

Fave Songs: Perry Mason, I Just Want You, See You On The Other Side and Old LA Tonight.

Album cover is meh. Don't like it. Never have.

Ozzy Osbourne (Down To Earth) 2001
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/2001DownToEarth.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/2001DownToEarthBack.jpg)

Down To Earth sees yet another all new line up. This time with Ozzy and Zakk returning, Robert Trujillo (Metallica) takes over on Bass and Mike Bordin (Faith No More) takes over on Drums.

I think this is only slightly better than that of Ozzmosis due in large part because it's heavier than that of the Ozzmosis. But it's still a step down from his best stuff. Overall, Down To Earth is poorly mixed and lacking in the songwriting department and I think the tracklist should have had a different order. And You Know...(Part 1) should have been dropped all together as it's pointless. The majority of the production does tend to sound muddy at times with the bass and guitars stepping on each other's toes. And Ozzy's voice at times gets buried too far in the mix to the point where he sounds non-existent. This one may have the same rating as The Ultimate Sin, but I would say that Sin is better than Down To Earth and I would definitely recommend Sin over this one.

I originally picked this album up specifically for Dreamer. But now, I can't really even listen to that song anymore. It's...ugh. I don't know what it is. I just haven't enjoyed the song at all for the past few years. With all the flaws on this album, it does have a few good songs that I find myself listening to over and over.

Fave Songs: Gets Me Through, That I Never Had and Running Out Of Time

Under Cover is a tribute album full of cover versions ranging from John Lennon to The Beatles to The Rolling Stones and a handful of others. I don't have this and really don't care to either, so, I can't give a proper review. I will let Mac take this one as I know he has it. What I do know is that any album with Kelly Osbourne on it has failure written all over it.

This is NOT a reveiw

Scream. Don't have it. But from the videos, it does look and sound interesting enough that if I come across it in a bargain bin I just may pick this one up. Really not sure what to make of the album cover. Meh.

Ozzy Osbourne (The Ozzman Cometh) 1997
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_02star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1997TheOzzmanCometh.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Ozzy%20Osbourne%20500%20x%20500/1997TheOzzmanComethBack.jpg)

The Ozzman Cometh is a Greatest Hits set. This is probably one of the weakest GH sets ever, for any artist. There are so many omissions here that you are better off just buying his biggest albums instead, or going with Prince of Darkness, a 4 Disc Box Set, which I don't have btw, so I can't review that one specifically. All in due time, my friends.

As for this one, there are 2 different pressings. The Original 2 disc set (which I have) comes with Shot In The Dark on Disc 1 and on Disc 2 is an Ozzy Interview that takes place in 1988. The second pressing comes as a 1 Disc set with the 2002 Remixed version (you know, the ones that suck) as well as replacing Shot In The Dark with Miracle Man. So, if you intend to buy this GH set anyways, go with the least sucky one: #1. The set comes with 1 Unreleased track from Ozzmosis: Back To Earth.

Under Cover is a tribute album full of cover versions ranging from John Lennon to The Beatles to The Rolling Stones and a handful of others. I don't have this and really don't care to either, so, I can't give a proper review. I will let Mac take this one as I know he has it. What I do know is that any album with Kelly Osbourne on it has failure written all over it.

Mac, take it away..........

Well, actually it's not a very kind review because quite frankly, it's pretty bad. I have no intention of ever listening to it again.

I borrowed this and thank gawd I didn't buy it. I'll take it away alright... and throw it right in the file => time wasted.

Love ya Ozzy, but this is nothing but fail. Horrible in concept. Horrible in execution. That's why I was kinda giving the back head slap to the upcoming Christmas Album Black Christmas.

W-wh-why?

Oh, I know... Sharon  >:(

This is the kind of stuff I like to see. It's one thing to see a performance when he is expected to be in top form putting on a show for the crowd, but it's another thing to be a fly on the wall and witnessing him just tuning the guitar and riffing. This is gold to me.

The Ozzy Osbourne Story: Wreckage Of My Past

Documentary Trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx0OttCdqNU&feature=player_embedded

I was doing research to see where they were at with the Randy Rhoads film that's been in the works for 3 years, I came across Ozzy's Trailer for his impending film, which I had no clue about. It's suppose to be released in 2012. They better get on it as time is running out. As for Randy's film, what I found wasn't very promising, regarding the films "Director". This seems like it's going to amateurish at best, which would be a shameful way to honor Randy's memory. I'm not confident at all. Read for yourself about Bob Daisley association with the Director here...

Randy Rhoads Documentary - Bob Daisley Speaks Out (http://www.bobdaisley.com/content/randy-rhoads-documentary-bob-daisley-speaks-out#bob_section)

At the bottom of the page of the above link, it takes you into a more detailed account of the shadiness of the people behind the Randy Rhoads film. This sucks.  Can't find anything else regarding when this "film" is coming out.

Tribute to Randy Rhoads
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_04halfstar.gif)


I just got finished watching the Tribute to Randy Rhoads Documentary, an 80 minute special made specifically for the Japanese market. This was the first I've heard of this doc. I stumbled upon this while researching the current film being put together. I seriously doubt the American version will be able to match the Tribute doc. The only way I can see it being better is we get to see the actual stuff that Bob Daisley mentions in the previous post regarding the "Holy Grail" that he has in his possession.

As for this particular doc, I was really impressed with how well it was put together. I came away from watching this completely satisfied in spite of not knowing Japanese. I wish they added English subtitles so I would know what the narrator was saying. This is the sole reason why it only got 4 1/2 Stars instead of 5. I highly recommend you guys watch this. Watching them pull out Randy's Polka Dot V was chilling to see. I had always wondered where it was. Now I know.

P.S.

I think this is turning into the Randy Rhoads Discography thread now. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/headbang.gif)

OZZY DOCUMENTARY TO MAKE CABLE DEBUT IN JULY


God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, the documentary about the life of the legendary heavy metal icon, will premiere on cable on July 13th when it airs on the Showtime network.

The film had a brief festival and theatrical run last summer before arriving on DVD last fall.

The film, co-produced by Ozzy's son Jack, features never-before-seen Black Sabbath footage and recent solo tour clips, along with interviews with fellow musicians and the Osbourne family.

Ozzy Osbourne Steps Out with Eldest Daughter Aimee (and Still Wearing His Wedding Ring) Amid Split from Wife Sharon

Ozzy Osbourne stepped out with his rarely seen eldest daughter Aimee Osbourne in L.A. on Tuesday.

Ozzy was seen with his silver wedding band still on his left hand.

The sighting comes days after news of his split with wife of 33 years Sharon Osbourne.

While Ozzy has been supported by his daughter Aimee, his younger daughter Kelly posted an Instagram snap the same day with a cryptic message that read: "Guess who's turning (lemons) into #lemonade?" with many assuming the post was in support of her mother Sharon.

A source has told PEOPLE that Sharon "has clearly been emotional since the news broke but is maintaining that confidence everyone knows her for," adding: "She's dealing with a lot but she is not distraught."

News of their split broke Saturday amid rumors of infidelity on Ozzy's part. Sharon addressed infidelity rumors on Tuesday's The Talk, telling her co-hosts: "I'm 63 years of age, and I can't keep living like this."

She also said that she's "been avoiding looking at any pictures or reading anything."

"I know what's going on. I don't need to read about or see about it," Sharon said. "It's like putting salt in a wound. I don't need to."

Sharon said she kicked Ozzy out of their house, but he has moved back in and she is staying elsewhere.

Sharon and Ozzy have three children together Ė Aimee, 32; Kelly, 31; and Jack, 30.

Axl Rose Explains Why Izzy Stradlin Isnít Part Of GNíR Reunion, Izzy Calls Bullshit (https://www.yahoo.com/news/axl-rose-explains-why-izzy-104149833.html)


Ah. This is definitely eye opening. I just figured that Izzy was never contacted about rejoining GNR. Well, reading between the lines of what Izzy said via Twitter, apparently he was asked, but would not be paid equally. This sucks. We have a chance for a full-on Reunion and it comes down to money standing in the way. Axl, you're f*cking this up. How much money do you really need?

I don't see why Izzy would get an equal cut.  I understand him asking for it obviously seems to make perfect sense from his POV....but the fact is
he is long gone....and the tour can easily go on without him...which it has.

so he sort of lost any leverage he thought he had.

of course I'd like him there...but this might be an easy way for him justify him not wanting to do it regardless.

and I agree wrong thread El Chipo.

but one thing for sure...you can hear the excitement in Zakk's playing and how happy he is to be back with Ozzy.

His playing sounds full of joy and almost like youthful exuberance.  Very cool and interesting to hear that level of excitement come through.
