The Metal Den: RANDY RHOADS – Stills From The Long Awaited Live OZZY DVD? [November 22, 2010] | The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site

The Metal Den: RANDY RHOADS – Stills From The Long...

****UPDATE*** TMD has learned that these still shots are NOT from the upcoming Ozzy DVD, instead these stills are from unreleased film footage owned by the Phoenix brothers, who have still not chosen to release front row footage they once shot to the public. When we were first sent the screen shots this information was not included. We have now been informed of this via a member of TMD is not in the business of deceit or trying to take credit for something that we don’t have right to. TMD is a news outlet… we report news, and sometimes when reporting a whole lot of news during the day, false facts can and will be involved. In terms of Randy Rhoads, there are a ton of people who think they own Randy Rhoads and his legacy. No, ALL the fans have right to their love for the guitarist and trying to discover the true facts in his life story. TMD is not any different. We are the ultimate metal fans, without a doubt… and simply try to put it all out there, any little story tidbit to an overall subject matter, like Rhoads… for good or bad, that’s called journalism… it – like mostly everything in this world – is not an exact science. TMD watches other metal news sites steadily rip off the others news stories (literally copy/paste text verbatim) to post on their site without giving the original news source credit. It happens to TMD all the time!! Yet, we are a site that operates outside of that… giving credit when it’s due…and try to deliver ‘new, fresh stories’… even if sometimes we ourselves get pie on our face. It’s the danger of being in the news business. Period! With respect to Randy Rhoads, TMD will NEVER stop its pursuit of promoting one of the greatest electric guitar players ever… and helping expose his music to a new generation and for the future generations after that. If Sharon and Ozzy had their way, nobody would ever celebrate and talk about Randy. Hell, Sharon and Ozzy didn’t even care enough to attend Randy’s 25th death anniversary in 2007… and they continuously have shamed Randy’s legacy in many other ways, like replacing the bass and drums on the first two Ozzy albums, over money. So before any of YOU try to point fingers at TMD for being some scandalous operation… who apparently is ONLY trying to get 15 minutes of fame…take a step back and realize we are only the ‘messenger’… why in the hell shoot us? We did phrase our headline with a question mark, didn’t we? So TMD never all out claimed these were authentic Ozzy DVD stills, did we? No, we did not! TMD will still continue its pursuit of the facts in Randy’s story from a historical perspective… and around the time of his birth and death date every year, TMD will pay tribute to his musical legacy any way we see fit!!!

The Metal Den has obtained a couple still shots reportedly taken off footage that is from the long awaited OZZY OSBOURNE live DVD that features late great guitarist Randy Rhoads!

In November of 2010, Sony Music Entertainment was set to unleash re-releases of the classic Ozzy albums: Diary of a Madman and Blizzard of Ozz, featuring Randy Rhoads, with the original bass and drum tracks restored. These are said to be 2 disc Deluxe 30th Anniversary Editions with demos, rarities and previously unreleased live material. A limited Super Deluxe Edition of Blizzard of Ozz will be released in the U.K. only and features a newly designed DVD sized Digipak case with the 2 CD’s, a 65 minute DVD featuring never-before-seen live concert footage & interviews with Ozzy and the band, 3 Fender guitar picks, stickers, a faux invitation to the resurrection of Alistair Crowley and an 18cm by 12cm glossy 58-page booklet.

However, it’s now being widely reported that these releases apparently won’t see the light of day until 2011.

Ozzy Osbourne claims the disc boasts never-before-seen footage of his band performing in 1981. At that time, late guitarist Randy Rhoads was in the group and Ozzy even updated his Twitter page after watching the material, saying, “I’m speechless.” Again, no word yet on when exactly the Ozzy re-releases and DVD will hit shelves but you can bet a ton of Randy fans eagerly await to see the historic footage.

seems to me like it’s Randy’s family keeping all Randy footage from the public is what I am getting at. given they own the rights to his name and image and all.

Sharon? maybe. Ozzy? I don’t think so.

Now why would you say that about Ozzy. Obviously he loved Randy. That is so unkind. Sharon has brewed black waters time and again for Ozzy, and his own oblivion in excess is no excuse. I’m sure if he felt that he would have been welcome there he would have gone. How do you think it would feel to attend a tribute for Randy given the kind of loathing and hostility that has been the perpetual state of things for him by the press with respect to anything Randy?

All I ever hear is how Ozzy raped Randy, how he screwed over this and that person. Frankly, I think Ozzy loved Randy, deeply, and was as much a pawn in the big game of life as anyone else. Like Howard Stern says, Ozzy needs to take a far more active role in his life and interests. Having allowed his wife to do so in his stead has resulted in many people hating him instead of his manager and choices she made in his name. Is he culpable? Yes, in-as-much as he has remained immature and dependent on someone clearly akin to a cobra to make all the key decisions on things that matter and affect his public image.

If you think Sharon loves Ozzy, think again. Buy a used copy of Extreme. That will give you a strong dose of how she clearly “loves” the man.

Truth is, for whatever the reason (unresolved issues from childhood? chronic drug abuse and years of her domination as the enabler?) Ozzy is terribly dependent on Sharon for everything. In a very sick psychological sense. Even Kelly parrots off Mommy’s thrilling knowledge that “Daddy would not survive a day without Mommy.” That is sick.

What surprises me is that his daughter Aimee and son Jack don’t help him to step away from that insanity and be on his own. They seem like good people. The furthest Aimee has gone is to say something to the effect of ‘her dad is always worried about everyone else’s happiness and doesn’t seem to understand he deserves some for himself.’

I’m sure the threats from Sharon would be tremendous, but in the end he would have half their assets. Hell, even if he had a tenth and got away from her it would be worth it. How many millions does he need to enjoy life peacefully with a woman who would really love him? I’m sure he could find that person if he looked around carefully.

End of subject.
