Ozzy Osbourne’s Diary Of A Madman was Ozzy’s second solo album. Released in November 1981 and recorded with the same band that had made Blizzard of Ozz such a success, Diary built on its predecessor, delivering another set of songs that set the bar for 80s metal.
Proggy, frequently nightmarish, but with a depth that its cartoon-horror movie album cover possibly failed to convey, Diary was blessed with big tunes and genuine guitar heroics from Randy Rhoads. Sadly, Rhoads never got to enjoy its success or the indelible mark he left on guitar playing: he died in an aeroplane crash just four months after the album’s release.
That tragedy and Ozzy’s subsequent descent into bat-biting tabloid notoriety, meant that Diary Of A Madman has often been overlooked as an album. Recently reissued digitally as a 40th Anniversary Expanded Edition, now is your chance to discover (or re-discover) the album AND win a vinyl edition of the album, signed by Ozzy himself.
