Ozzy Osbourne, New Years Evil, 1981

Recommended Posts

New Years Evil, 1981, Los Angeles Sports Arena

Just 40 feet away from Randy Rhoads, this was one of the greatest moments of my young life.

The amazing thing about Youtube is that I found Ozzy live from Long Beach, CA just six months earlier.

I went to both shows. Stayed out all night long and had the greatest time at both concerts.

 

Here's one from the Long Beach show.

I saw the Blizzard of Oz and the Diary of a Madman tours from the front row in Cardiff - at the tender age of 13. Happy, happy days. And las year found audio for one of the gigs and the warm up on a fan site. Amazing interwebz...

I saw Ozzy and Randy in Atlanta. One of the most incredible displays of guitar playing I have ever seen/heard.

A few days later, as I was driving to Daytona Florida for Spring Break fun, I heard an announcement on the radio that Randy was dead.

I could not believe I had just seen one of the last concerts he ever performed.

I have always considered myself very fortunate to have been there that night. :)
