Previously Unheard Joint Randy Rhoads and Ozzy Osbourne Recordings Surface
To mark the 32nd anniversary of the tragic loss of Randy Rhoads, a series of previously unheard recordings of the guitarist with Ozzy Osbourne has surfaced online, Hennemusic reports.

Rhoads was killed in a plane accident at the age of 25 on March 19, 1982 while on tour with Osbourne.

The tracks have been made available by bassist Bob Daisley, who recorded more than seven hours of material during the writing, rehearsing and recording sessions of the "Blizzard of Ozz" and "Diary of a Madman" albums.

Daisley refers to the tapes, which were recorded between December 8, 1979 and March 23, 1981, as "the Holy Grail" for "Blizzard of Ozz" fans due to the rarity of the material.

The bassist explains the sessions in more detail and answers questions from fans, as well - check it out below (via bobdaisley.сom).

Originally a member of Quiet Riot, Rhoads shot to fame as the groundbreaking guitarist for Ozzy after playing on his first two solo albums.
