Ozzy Osbourne- Flying High Again- Memphis 4-28-82

Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads‘ recent recognition by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the Musical Excellence Award is a reminder that Rhoads was killed in a tragic accident while on tour in support of his second album with the rejuvenated and reinvented Osbourne, Diary of a Madman , which had its fortieth anniversary recently. Five weeks after the deaths of his trusted guitarist, his tour bus driver, and the band’s wardrobe seamstress in a single engine plane crash, Ozzy Osbourne summoned the courage to honor a commitment to perform a live national radio broadcast from Memphis’ Mid South Coliseum, with Night Ranger’s Brad Gillis doing a commendable job of guitar grace under pressure, ripping through “Flying High Again”. –Redbeard
