He discusses studio work with Randy and Lee from 26:00 on. Then at 29:00 he discusses his songwriting. Although acknowledging Randy's riffs and Ozzy's melody for the song, he claims he wrote the song. He said he wrote all the lyrics. And for Suicide Solution he says he wrote that song about Ozzy, who was heartbroken and drinking himself to death as a solution to his pain over being fired from Black Sabbath. He said Ozzy claims he wrote it about Bon Scott, but that Ozzy didn't write it, he only wrote the first line "Wine is fine but whiskey's quicker." He talks about Flying High Again.
"Daisley, who played bass on the first two solo albums by Ozzy Osbourne, said in a recent interview with his web site that he has not been contacted about the 30th anniversary editions of those records being released in early 2011. The tracks played by Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake on both albums — 1980's "Blizzard Of Ozz" and 1981's "Diary Of A Madman" — were replaced on a previous reissue after Daisley and Kerslake sued Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne over royalties.
Daisley told the web site, 'Neither Lee nor I have been contacted, considered or consulted in the decision to re-release the original recordings. I haven't a clue as to what the 'bonus material' might be. As for royalties, we have not been approached for a reconciliation and have been offered and promised nothing.'"
