Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 3rd December!Ozzy Osbourne

Happy birthday to John Michael Osbourne, who is better known as „Ozzy„! The also called „Prince of Darkness“ was born on the 3rd December 1948 in Birmingham, UK. In the seventies the singer joined Black Sabbath, whose unique and very dark, heavy sound has been considered as one of the developers of the Heavy Metal genre. Until his leaving in 1979 he recorded many milestones with Black Sabbath, like „Paranoid„, „War Pigs“ (both 1970) and „Iron Man“ (1971).

Ozzy started a very successful solo career and until today he released eleven studio albums including the milestones „Blizzard of Ozz“ (1979 – featuring the classics „Crazy Train„, „Suicide Solution“ and „Mr. Crowley„),  „Diary of a Madman“ (1981), „Bark at the Moon“ (1983), „No more Tears“ (1991 – featuring the hit „Mama, I’m coming Home„) and the cover album „Under Cover“ (2005). Over the years he reunited with Black Sabbath, like in 2011 to record the comeback album „13„.

His biography „I am Ozzy“ gives a perfect insight in his outstanding life including many and funny episodes behind the reality show „The Osbournes„.

Black Sabbath (2011)

Black Sabbath (2011)

On the 11th November 2011, the four original members of Black Sabbath (Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Ozzy Osbourne and Bill Ward) announced that they are going to reunite. And it was also announced that a new record followed by a world tour in 2012 will happen. But the plans and the schedules were crossed because of Tony Iommi‘s health issue and Bill Ward’s contract problems – so the tour had to be postponed. Finally, the first Black Sabbath show since 2005 took place on the 21st May 2012 in Birmingham at the O2 Academy. Tommy Clufetos filled in for Ward playing the drums.


On the 10th June 2013 the comeback album „13“ was released and went straight to number one in many countries like USA, UK and Germany.

On the 19th March 1982, guitarist and former Quiet Riot member Randy Rhoads died. The musician was killed in a plane crash.


Randy played that time in Ozzy Osbourne’s band and the whole entourage was touring through the USA. On the way to the next show in Orlando (Florida), they stopped on a property where on an airstrip some small helicopters and planes were parked. Andrew Aycock, the bus driver, took a test flight with keyboarder Don Airey and tour manager Jake Duncan. After a safe landing, Andrew took another flight – this time with guitarist Randy Rhoads and makeup artist Rachel Youngblood. During that flight the tragic happened: The plane buzzed over the tourbus, where Ozzy and the other band members were sleeping. After a second close pass the third didn’t succeed and one of the wings clipped the bus, broke and the plane was out of control and crashed into a near garage and bursted into flames. All three people were killed instantly and the bodies were burned beyond recognition. Randy Rhoads died at the age of only 26 years.
