In a recent conversation with Guitar Player‘s, iconic guitarist Zakk Wylde talked about Black Sabbath, where he also mentioned that late Ozzy Osbourne guitarist, Randy Rhoads, actually didn’t like Black Sabbath.
“Yeah, totally. It’s kind of crazy that Randy didn’t like Black Sabbath, I thought everybody liked Black Sabbath. But then again, I think that’s the reason that Randy worked so well because he came from a completely different direction and a completely different set of influences.
”I was always a Sabbath freak, and I still am. What is hilarious is that when I was 15, I was playing Sabbath songs at keg parties, and now I’m 54 years old and I’m still playing Sabbath songs at keg parties. Though I guess the crowds are a little bigger. “
