Are there some bootlegs/shows where Brad plays some of Randy 's songs. SOTD was the last Ozzy cd I've got and I never realy listened much to it. Mainly because I was expecting at least a few of the songs from Randy on it. I've always had the idea that Brad did all the Black Sabbath covers because he could handle the Randy's songs. So if there's some shows like that I would like to hear him.
*? Brad only played 2 shows where they played the Sabbath stuff...the gig where they recorded SOTD and a practice gig a night or two before. Every other show he did with Ozzy from the time he joined the band in April '82 until he left to rejoin Night Ranger in Dec. '82 where full of Randy songs.

I just posted a full show:

thanks
Josh

Hey Josh! Long time no talk! Depends on which link you are referring to. The link you quoted is a full show from Memphis, TN that was aired on radio. The other link I posted is just one song from the pre-Speak Of The Devil show.

I have to agree the Speak of the Devil album is a great album, not as good as Blizzard but it's a great album.

He was in the band for about 8 1/2 months. His first show being April 13, 1982 (taking over for Bernie Torme' on the US Diary tour) and his last gig with Ozzy was at the later part of December 82 on the short UK leg of The Diary tour. There was a good bit of time off between those months, but yeah, played with the band over almost 9 months. Got to record a live video concert (that should have been with Randy) during the Diary tour (misleadingly titled "Speak Of The Devil" in circles) and recorded the double live "Speak Of The Devil" album in late September 82.

cool to hear the Symptom of the Universe Mp3.
i was at the first night of the two Speak of the Devil shows
in New York City at the old Ritz, which i believe was September 19th, 1982.

in November that same year when the album came out,
we were never sure which night was used for the recording.
i just assumed that both were mixed together with also rehearsals.
i also noticed a tuning change on the album for a song or two
if i remember correctly, which may or may not, divide the two nights.
plus they did not play 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath' on the 1st night.
if anyone has any info on this, please share.

Are you refering to his "fluttering"? If so, then there was a thread that was all about it :wink: ...

I always thought Brad was a great player. But after reading Rudy's book "Off the Rails" I have even more respect for his playing. To be able to play like that after the way Ozzy treated him night after night is just showing how much of an outstanding musician he was at a young age in "82".


I agree 100% but he stuck it out and now he is well respected among the ranks.

#-o I knew that. I forgot. :P Its been a bit since I thought about SOTD. But yeah, sorry, I knew he played those. Like I said, I'm looking forward to listening to it! 8)

The "fluttering" has always been known to me as the "Gillis Growl". I actually use that technique from time to time, it's good when your bar is pointing to the back and you can just smack it with the meaty part of your palm while trilling.

SOTD was a awsome album. Does anyone know what pick up Brad was using on Symptom of the Universe? The crunch in that song blows me away. I think I seen pic of Brad's strat and it had a humbucker in the bridge, not a single coil like most strats I see.

Also was there a song book with tabs and such for that album? I havent been able to find one.


Thanks again!

Jeff
