BOB DAISLEY SAYS CLASSIC ROCK SHOULD BE “ASHAMED” AFTER GIVING SECRET AWARD TO RANDY RHOADS

Daisley published a statement on his personal Facebook page early this (Monday 8th December 2015) morning which is self explanatory. You can read the statement in full below.

“In this year’s recent Classic Rock ‘Roll of Honour Awards’, Ozzy Osbourne was presented with the ‘Classic Album Award’ for our ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ album. After the ceremony, Randy Rhoads’ brother and sister, Kelle and Kathy, were taken aside and secretly handed a paper bag containing an award for Randy, for his contribution to the album.

“I find this insulting and disrespectful to the Rhoads family and, in particular, to Randy. I’d like to know why Randy’s award wasn’t presented ‘publicly’ to the Rhoads family members, and why drummer Lee Kerslake and I weren’t even mentioned.

“That album was not a ‘solo’ Ozzy Osbourne record, as many have been wrongly led to believe, it was a work of art made by four people, the band called The Blizzard of Ozz.

“I co-wrote the music with Randy, I wrote more than 90% of the lyrics, and the four band members played on and co-produced the album together, so why did ‘Classic Rock’ choose to acknowledge only one member of the band?

“I do not begrudge Ozzy receiving his award, but I’d like to know why Randy wasn’t acknowledged ceremoniously and why Lee and I weren’t even mentioned, let alone given an award for our significant contributions to that album.

“‘Classic Rock’ should know better, and they should be ashamed!”
