It was 30 yrs ago this week that Randy Rhoads died..as the plane he was on-board crashed while it was buzzing Ozzy's tour bus. Then...25 yrs ago this month...Ozzy joined me in studio, as we played the just-released Tribute album in its entirety--on a turntable! I KNOW it was Ozzy, cuz he had O-Z-Z-Y tattooed on his knuckles. Ozzy expressed genuine sadness over the loss of such a talent as Randy, my fave Ozzy guitarist because of his classically inspired metal riffs. BUT...what I also felt from Oz..was a sincere sense of FAMILY as he chatted on about his 2 small kids...Jack & Kelly. SO..it was no surprise to ME that the Osbournes was such a strangely compelling TV show, some 20 yrs later. I wonder if the new cartoon the F*n Osbournes will have the same appeal??
