Your Favorite Guitarists
I have noticed a lot of comments lately trying to put Gus G down. It's terrible that you'd even say something like that, as he is a wonderful guitar player, and I doubt half of you can even play.
I have created this topic to discuss which of Ozzy's guitarists is your favorite (discuss other favorite guitarists, as well, if you so desire):
-Randy Rhoads: Ozzy's first guitarists for his solo career; A revolutionary guitarist ahead of his time who especially did well with the freedom of a live performance
---Career w/ Ozzy ended March 19, 1982 due to his death in a plane crash
-Jake E. Lee: An excellent guitarist especially well-known for performing with bands such as Ratt and Dio (R.I.P. Ronney)
---Career w/ Ozzy ended 1987 because he quit due to his belief the Tribute album was a waste of time
-Zakk Wylde: Career with Ozzy spanned longer than any other player; A great guitarist capable of playing many musical moods and a good friend of Ozzy's
---Career ended w/ Ozzy 2009 because he wished to quit to spend time with his own band and take care of his recently-discovered blood clots
-Gus G: A great guitarist and member of Firewind; He has so far proven himself a worthy guitarist for Osbourne with excellent riffs and short solos in every song, each vary greatly showing his capability to play many styles of music
Personally, Randy is my favorite, and I was born over 13 years after his death! He was an amazing, revolutionary guitarist, and I especially love the songs released on the Tribute album. He was a good guy and one of Ozzy's closest friends, and he literally learned something new for the guitar in every city he went to. If he was still alive today, he would undoubtedly be viewed as the greatest guitarist living today, or ever, for that matter (Sorry, Eddie van Halen, but I honestly believe he was much better than you--that could just be my opinion, though).
