He probably played it atleast 3-4 times


You sure ?


I said probably because jake made his debut on 1-12-83 while still supporting Diary on which tour Brad, Bernie and randy all played that song quite a bit so I'd imagine Jake played it a few times that's why I said probabyl though because I've never heard it. But it would be cool to hear.

Yeah but that was only 45 minutes long. I'm still searching for it. I've wanted to hear that for a while aswell. I want to hear Jake play any song I haven't heard him do before. All of his Blizzard and Diary covers were well done even though I think that when he played some of them note for note it was limiting to a player as good as Jake.

What are you talking about? He sounds exactly like Randy on those solos.

I'll have to agree with Metalhead on this one. I think Jake played excellent versions of the songs, but they certainly weren't note for note live. Most of the rhythms and solos were very close, but Jake was known for putting his own spin on everything he did. Not to say Jake didn't have the chops that Randy had, they were just different chops. Listen to any live version of "I Don't Know" with Jake playing. You can actually hear him inject extra notes, harmonics and alternate timings in the song.

Ozzy didn't mix up the set list very much on all the tours with Jake, so I can't blame Jake for taking some of his playing in different directions at certain venues. Actually, I think mixing it up from time to time makes you a more well-rounded player.

Yeah, Jake didn't play Randy's guitar parts note for note. It is a good thing, too. It really shows Jake as himself. :P

Zakk Wylde sounds more closer to Randys original solos than Jake though.
but he also manages to fit in his own style.

On the latest Ozzy DVD, Zakk plays Bark At The Moon closer to the album version than Jake. It sounded just like it.
