I miss Blizzard, but especially most of all Diary of a Madman and some of his mid-career stuff (No Rest, No More Tears) too. I miss that sound big time. NOBODY does that sound like Ozzy did. I stand in line with my candle for that stuff too. Ozzy really drifted from his style in the 80's and early 90's into a much darker, harder, more contemporary metal sound which to me was disappointing to, though I am the LAST soul to say Down to Earth and Black Rain are not of the highest calibre of music and that I don't love them too.

I miss Hellraiser, Road to Nowhere, SATO, Tonight, Breaking All the Rules, Fire in the Sky, and most of all Diary. They aren't songs he often plays...we hear Crazy Train like he said way too much. Ozzy isn't just that song, you know?

But I hear you. I miss that sound too. It would be beautiful if Gus G could "get" that sound, tone down the technical elements and go for the fluid and ethereal like Randy did, the more melodic and beautiful and classic, for a future album of course.

I can't seem to see you baby ... although my eyes are open wide ... but I know I'll see you once more ... when I see you, I'll see you on the other side
