Check out this video of Ozzy listening to a Randy Rhoads solo found on the master tapes for the "Blizzard Of Oz" album. After 30 years Ozzy is still mesmerized by Randy's playing. Ozzy and Randy were opposites when it came to their personalities but they fit together like puzzle pieces. Ozzy attributed the success of the first two Blizzard Of Oz albums to Randy's patience:
"They [Black Sabbath] never had the patience to try and listen to where I was coming from. Randy Rhoads was the first guy who ever sat down with me and listened to my humming and worked with it.
I fell in love with Randy as a player and a person the instant I saw him. He had the best smile in the world. Randy was the best guy in the world to work with. There is no comparison between him and Tony Iommi, and I can only compare the two because they were the only guitar players I had ever worked with. I was attracted to Randy's angelic attitude towards the whole business. I didn't have to teach him anything; all that he was lacking was guidance. He listened to every word I spoke to him, and we had a great rapport together.
"Some nights Randy would give me a spine chill. His playing was so unpredictable live. He wouldn't think about it, he would just go for it. He wouldn't wonder if it would fit the song structure, he would just play his ideas as if they were there anyway."
Here, Guitar God Steve Vai(who has also worked with Ozzy) explains the importance of chemistry when it comes to being creative:
"As long as I'm satisfied with my work, I'm not too concerned with what any critics think. Our type of music will never be a critical favorite, but when I can stand on a stage and see a lot of smiling faces in the crowd, it makes it all worthwhile." - Randy Rhoads
