'Blizzard of Ozz' & 'Diary of a Madman' & 'Speak of the Devil' plus the old Black Sabbath albums are the only Ozzy I ever cared about. After that, he became sort of 'the Benny Hill' of heavy metal. When I saw him dressed as a werewolf on that 'Bark at the Moon' LP cover, I was DONE with Ozzy.
I HAVE over the years enjoyed listening to some of Jake E. Lee's guitar work while blocking Ozzy's vocals out in my head...
Kinda HAD to do the same thing with Van Halen after the first (and best) 4 albums. Once a band starts going 'commercial' it starts to get weird... I guess you can't blame people for wanting to 'stay in the game' & make tons of money before it's all over, though. It even showed it in the 'Ray' Charles movie...
Never knew Ray shot Heroin til after he died. Same with Belushi.
