Ozzy Osbourne (Diary Of A Madman) 1981

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.
