Last Updated: February 19, 2010 11:16 JAKE E. LEE Jamming In Las Vegas; Video Footage, Photos Available - A short video clip of former OZZY OSBOURNE/BADLANDS guitarist Jake E. Lee jamming at a Las Vegas, Nevada bar in November 2009 can be viewed below.
According to the All Music Guide Lee helped Ozzy Osbourne score two of the most commercially successful releases of the singer's long and illustrious career — 1983's "Bark at the Moon" and 1986's "The Ultimate Sin". Lee eventually joined up with another former BLACK SABBATH singer (albeit briefly), Ray Gillen, and formed BADLANDS. Subsequently, Lee played briefly with a band called WICKED ALLIANCE before setting off on his own, issuing his solo debut, "A Fine Pink Mist", in August of 1996.Jake E. Lee's "covers" album, "Retraced", was released in the U.S. in April 2005 via Shrapnel Records.

I'm a huge fan of his work with Ozzy. I never even knew

about the solo album he did with Bogert -- can anyone tell

me if it's any good?

Makes me think back to the mid-80s when Jake and

George Lynch were both in their prime. Those were some

good times...

is a good cover album. they played james gang, free and

some other old songs. jake is sounding very bluesy on this


The worst thing on the album is the terrible vocalist...but

the instrumental part (bass, drums & guitars) is perfect

Other than Randy Rhoads, THIS MAN is where Zakk

Wylde took his playing from. THose SQUEALS and vibrato

things Zakk takes credit for?? THAT IS JAKE E. LEE.
Listen to Bark at the Moon or if you can find it, OZZY live

at the US Festival.
All you little Zakk Wylde kids out there, this is where he

took it from.

Nice to see Jake again.I saw him with Ozzy on the Bark at

the Moon tour.Followed his work for a couple of Badland

cd's and haven't heard of him till today.Taking over for

Randy Rhodes was no small task.But he did it with class

and some awesome guitar licks.

I read that Jake hadn't even touched a guitar in a long time

before the latest covers solo album. Such a shame.

Great to see him out there and having fun with it. One of

my all-time favorite rock guitarists.

Please come back Jake! Put together a band that can do all

your Ozzy stuff, along with the Badlands material. I would

fly anywhere to see that show.

It would be nice to see Jake get a good vocalist and hit the

road to do some of the vintage Ozzy and Badlands stuff.

Badlands first CD was really good melodic rock stuff.

Bark At The Moon is an incredible album. In my opinion,

right up there with Blizzard and Diary. The riffs are

amazing. Of course the title track, rock 'n roll rebel, center

of entirety, waiting for darkness. Such a good album.

Ultimate Sin was great too. Love the songs secret loser and

thank god for the bomb.

I saw Jake on the The Ultimate Sin tour(along with

Metallica opening with Cliff).....

I also saw Jake with Badlands right when their first album

came out at the Cat Club. A great show.

He should tour. Get a good band a good vocalist and tour

on the Ozzy/Badlands material.

BUT....maybe he just isn't up to it.........or doesn't want to...

you pretty much want to try to get a copy of the "Ultimate

Sin" tour. I think it's out of print but out there,

somewhere; God that guitar on there is Mind-Blowing.

Solos / extended solos (ala DIO) Heavy crunchy riffs. O.K.

that's all.

Killer of Giants... what a song. especially the live version

on the Ultimate Sin tour Video; the guitar solo he does

after the about blazing shred. and Thank God

For the Bomb is also a great song with tons of cool riffs.

Both albums he did with Oz are just the greatest. Zakk was

good on NRFTW but he never had the compositional song

writing talent that Jake had with ozzy

Total respect for this man and his playing! Saw him many

years ago in Chicago where he was so sick he could barely

stand and was literally leaning against his stacks! Still

played a blistering set. Many others would have said I can't

do it.

he should reform Badlands or get another band going at

Good to hear from this guy again, his work with Ozzy has

been AWESOME, I loved the way he played and the

feeling he put to the songs. This guy and Randy have been

the BEST axemen Ozzy has ever had in his solo career with

their distinctive styles. Conclusion: when I listen to Ozzy´s

albums I cannot help ignoring Zakk. I cannot stand that

guy. Ozzy is dead for me since he came.

Zakk Wylde learned harmonic "sqeals" from listening to

Billy Gibbons.

Also, for anyone who has played guitar and followed these

guys for a while.....there is very little similarity between

Zakk's and Jake's playing.
Totally different approach, feel and tone.

I would like to hear him make some more of that style of

John Corabi. That would be a good touring band.

I heard Ozzy contacted him to play on "Black Rain" along

side Zakk but Jake turned him down. Jake still has a hard

on for Ozzy after he read in Metal Edge that Ozzy said he

was a Randy wannabe. He quit the band and we got Zakk.

Ultimate Sin is my fav. Ozzy album really wish they would

join forces again.

Jake ought to put something together and come back. And

to the guy asking about Jake's solo CD "A Fine Pink Mist,"

the CD is a must have if you're a fan, and there are a few

stand out songs, but a lot of it is way different than what

you would normally associate with Jake. But hey, it's an

instrumental album and that's normally the case. If you're

a fan you ought to get it, but is you expect it to be more of

the same, then...

How come every time Blabbermouth mentions Badlands

or Jake E. Lee, they copy that same text about the "power

trio format"? Badlands was never a power trio. Singer,

guitarist, bassist, drummer -- does that add up to 3 or 4?

Idiots. Jake E. Lee's Retraced album also had those same 4

positions. Power trio? Are you stupid?

Having typed that, great to see Jake playing live again,

somewhere, and smiling about it. Will he ever join a band

again for real, or reform Badlands -- seems unlikely at this

point. Treasure the music he made and be glad for that.

I like BLABBERMOUTH.COM alot they really put a "zero-target" on all those Master-Music Artists & Bands: both up & coming and legends. Nice to see they finally "zeroed-target" in on Rebel guitarist/musician JAKE E. LEE most recent new music quest(s) endeavors performing "live" in Las Vegas, Nevada/Nov. '09!!! What a "sweet" surprise that was/and still very much is for we all know how Elusive & "work earnest" Mr. Lee is with all that awesome new music material ever since "A Fine Pink Mist" etc.,. to let loose on stage in which JAKE did with gritty raw-zeal, charm & Rebel flair! Love the new pix and live onstage footage of JAKE E. LEE jammin' with his music friends/it was "nice" to see these new Classic gems of a "awesome" Master Musician that kicked mega :twisted: buns & Trailblazed with passionate Heart N Soul w/OZZY OSBOURNE, BADLANDS, WICKED ALLIANCE and his SOLO Music works and other Music endeavors. I look forward to "more" new Music quests from JAKE E. LEE his a real-geniune Rebel "groove-twister" musician all the way & "continues" to be! Thanks BLABBERMOUTH for putting this vital latest JAKE E. LEE Music gem info on your fine established Music News Website/for Feb 19th, 2010! And "thanks" alfamy1 for bringing it to our ultmost attention. :D THANKS!!!
