Ozzy Osbourne- Paranoid- Memphis 4-28-82

In April 1982 Ozzy Osbourne honored an agreement to broadcast his sold-out concert live nationwide from the Memphis Mid-South Coliseum, in spite of the fact that his guitarist Randy Rhoads, his band seamstress, and his tour bus driver had all died in a single-engine plane crash about six weeks earlier. Ozzy, who had not spoken publicly since before the accident, earlier that afternoon chose  my ROCK 103 Memphis  radio show  to give a harrowing account of  how the tragic accident occurred. Here is a thunderous performance of  Black Sabbath‘s “Paranoid” with last-minute guitar stand-in Brad Gillis of Nightranger doing a remarkable job under very difficult circumstances .-Redbeard
