Hello Music lovers,
My cube-mate Zack has been listening to Crazy Train nonstop for the past 3 weeks. I can hear him jamming out even through his headphones! Im certainly not complaining, the main riff was probably one of the first few things I wanted to learn on the guitar, and is still one of the coolest sounds in rock n roll.
I did a quick search looking for the best live footage of the song, and this one really stood out. It features Ozzys original guitarist (during his solo act), Randy Rhoads before his tragic death at just 25. Though he was with the band only for a short time, he was clearly a huge influence. While Ozzys voice makes it sound very much like Black Sabbath, it was Rhoads distinct guitar that gave it that extra twist into unique perfection.
Since Rhoads was only around for a few years during the birth of Ozzy Osbournes solo act, there really is not too much live footage. This energetic version was recorded in 1981, and sounds amazing.

This is some of the best early footage of Ozzy's solo act, featuring Randy Rhoads in 1981.
