That is an excellent performance...I wish we had more pro-shot videos of Randy playing with Ozzy.

In the mid/late 80s in Buenos Aires I'd go to this record shop where they also copied music videos to blank VHS tapes on request. I was a huge Ozzy/RR fan and when I was told they had a live performance (the one the OP posted) I got money and ordered a copy. I worn that tape to the ground. Just 4 songs for TV if I'm not mistaken. It always left me wanting more.

Since I had about 2 free hours on that tape I also paid to have copied Ozzy's "The Ultimate Sin" tour. My friends and I were a bit put off by a fat Ozzy with huge hair and sequined dresses. I remember someone saying "He looks like one of our moms if they had money for that kind of clothes" ;D

Time passed by and I moved from heavy metal to different types of music. But I don't think there was a guitar player that blew me away like RR did. Maybe Prince did. Even today, when I hear some of RR's solos I still feel that awe and I can't wrap my head around how he played and wrote some of his stuff.

my first concert was Ozzy on the Ultimate Sin tour. until then my image of Ozzy was from Speak of the Devil then he comes out like a big sequined bumble bee.
