Third remastered re-release of the second full-length album by the legendary “godfather” of Heavy Metal.
This album is Osbourne's personal favorite of all his releases. This is the final album recorded by guitarist Randy Rhoads, who perished in an airplane crash in early 1982. It also represents drummer Lee Kerslake's final appearance with Osbourne. Although bassist Rudy Sarzo and drummer Tommy Aldridge are credited in the liner notes and pictured on the inner sleeve, it was bassist Bob Daisley and drummer Kerslake who performed all bass and drum parts on the original release.
Osbourne sure delivered a message with this trail of thought. The little above average playing of the guitar God Rhoads did work for the relatively young Ozz fanbase. Recorded back to back alongside with the solo debut “Blizzard Of Ozz”, “Diary Of Madman” concealed the unseen talents of the bassist Bob Daisley. Madman rages through with some dramatic and tragic guitar passages all toward the mad, doomy and sadistic dimensions of this album. This album was done with passion!
To date, the album has sold over 3.2 million copies worldwide.
