    yea he was bouncing out bro.
    Zakk was encouraged to leave on occation as ozzy couldnt stay busy enough to keep zakk happy.
    thats why zakk formed BLS, he wanted to keep playing and touring. make no mistake though, hes
    on call 24/7 believe that. zakk gives huge credit to ozzy and sharon for the success he still has today.

    I shouldn’t turn this in to a Randy vs Eddie thing but Rob Trilljio says he gave Eddie a run for his money is understated. I don’t think many people truly can see Randy’s playing ability for what it is. Kind of how most choose Michael Shcenker over Uli Roth. Uli has technical skill but everyone loves UFO kind of like Van Halen. I sad before I was done after the first release. I wanted to hear more from Randy. Tragically we lost him to the rock lifestyle.

    yes...the way he played live completely struck me...I had never seen anyone play like that...the one word I have always used to describe Randy live is..ferocious

    but, his bounce was because he wanted to go more classical guitar & less rock/metal, not because he hated the Osbournes...

    RR was an AWESOME talented guitarist, and he seemed like a sweet guy, but in all fairness I don't believe he 'gave EVH a run for his money'... Sorry. Just sayin'... :cool::cool::cool:

    I agree. Go back and listen to both especially live recordings. Evh was light years ahead of Randy in every way. I cringe now when I hear the tribute live solo. Sorry but ... my .02. And I was a huge fan of both.

    What strikes me is that I now listen to Randy and I can hear the era in the playing I never really heard before. There is a real early '70s style influence I never got from it when I was younger and learning his riffs. I started playing guitar at 13. was introduced to Randy when I was 15 from school friends, but back then the only way to learn or know was either magazines, school friends, the MTV friday night power hour, and of course the badly tabbed out books.

    FFWD 30 years and I've been playing Crazy Train so long, I've put my own touch on it, my own little fills, my own little licks, etc. Realized this the other day actually when my current covers band singer suggested it, so I revisited to refresh and ya... I play so different lol. Thankfully I convinced her it's not really a dance song that fits in with our set, but still, it was an eye opener.

    Not sure what you all are arguing about with the "vs" thing, I never understood people that think music or being a musician is a competition. I guess that's why I don't get along with most "musicians."

    Quoted:
    and of course the badly tabbed out books.

    Ugh no kidding. Even as a beginner I could still tell they werent even close.
    I remember Metallica "Justice" was not even close. I heard they updated them since.
    That tabber should have been horse whipped for those overpriced tab books. The lyrics were even incorrect.

    Agreed,
    Diary and Blizz...after that I was done too. Some future concerts were decent though.
    I was never really an OZZY fan. The band member were good, but never saw Ozzys talent......not even with Sabbath.
    his voice was bad,and lyrics were worse...absolutely no content.
    This is only my opinion of course. :D
    Sorry guys, I know yer fans.

    being since he hardly wrote any of the lyrics, it's hard to hold that against him... :shrug:
