A founding member and guitar player of the 80's band Night Ranger, Brad Gillis was enlisted to complete Ozzy's tour immediately following the death of R.R. Live performance recordings were aired on local radio stations, one song of note was "Never Say Die". The version that was aired was of good quality, but I haven't found that exact version on YouTube. The song featured Gillis on guitar for that tour, and there is a part in it where he had made a mistake with a quick recovery. If I recall the source correctly, it was either a Bio by Ozzy, or perhaps the one by Rudy Sarzo, that explained Sharon's disappointment that night when Brad made that mistake, whereafter, at the following show, she said to him before he walked out onto to stage, "...and oh - by the way, Brad? Don't f*ck up again tonight".Who is Brad gillis?
Enquiring minds want to know.
that’s pretty much my feelings.Personal pref of course, but for me, I thought Randy had the most interesting vibe, harmonically speaking anyway. Jake had the smoothest/cleanest playing (lead and especially rhythm) and by far the best tone and probably was my fav overall looking back. Zakk's playing just never spoke to me although I respect his savage live performances and staying power with Ozzy lol (not a lot of band members seem to stay around terribly long).
As afar as the pinch hitters go, Brad Gillis was great on such short notice, especially considering it was live, but Joe Holmes was a monster, especially the tones he brought!
