Ozzy Osbourne Wife Posts Swimsuit Photo With Guitarist


Beloved Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhodes played a huge part in Osbourne’s career as the founding member of Quiet Riot would go on to perform on essential Osbourne tracks such as ‘Crazy Train’ and ‘Mr. Crowley’. It goes without saying that ‘Crazy Train’ remains one of the most inspirational riffs in heavy metal guitar music to this very day. Ozzy Osbourne was booed for this performance.

Recently, taking to social media via Instagram, Osbourne’s wife – the ever-so-topical Sharon Osbourne posted the vintage photograph of herself, Ozzy, and Rhodes with the caption. “Feels like yesterday….we miss you every day”. Rhodes would tragically die in a plane crash while on tour with Osbourne in Florida in 1982. Sharon’s tribute to Rhodes’ where the three are seemingly on a boat together enjoying simpler times can be viewed below.

In related news, Rudy Sarzo played with Randy Rhodes and Quiet Riot pre-fame in the late 1970s. In addition, he would also be recruited to play bass for Ozzy Osbourne in the early 1980s. In a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Sarzo talks about auditioning for Osbourne’s band and how he originally didn’t want to take the opportunity, to begin with.

“It was a very different Randy back then before he joined Ozzy,” Sarzo explains. “He did not even want to [audition for Osbourne’s band]. He was still living at home. He was teaching about eight hours a day. He had a pattern. He had a girlfriend. He was comfortable. He still had a love for Quiet Riot, but his mom knew how much Quiet Riot was struggling to get a deal and make it. And she’s the one who advised him and said, ‘Listen, Randy, this might be your only opportunity to become a recording artist. If you don’t take this offer from Ozzy, it might never come around again.’”
