Ozzy's treatment of Jake onstage?

Postby Uglogirl » Thu Apr 26, 2007 5:57 am

Hi all, new here. Jake E. Lee is at the top of my list of the best and IMO the most underrated guitar player around. I've been playing/gigging since I was a kid... late 70's until '93 (I'm OLD lol).

One thing I have always been curious about was the way that Ozzy would really land into Jake onstage sometimes... I've never seen any video of him doing that to Randy Rhoads or Zakk Wylde. Now, showmanship is one thing, it was certainly neccessary with a band like that, especially in the 80's I think ha ha. I've certainly been the target of some pretty wild antics by singers but it was understood, it was part of the act. Was this so does anyone know of Ozzy's relationship with Jake or was it more a side effect of Ozzy's increasing addiction as the 80s went on? I do feel bad for Jake watching some of those videos, he's not a big guy, but then again I get goosebumps every time I watch him on his knees onstage, head back and bending feedback all over the place. omg yeah!

welcome to the forum, good to have you here..

the only thing from the "stage" i remember is, Ozzy grabbing Jake's hair & pulling him to the ground, at first Jake was probably surprised but went along with the act, i thought it looked pretty cool, reminds me of that Angus Young thing, sprawling on his knees in pain.....cool!!!


cheers

Matty.... :wink:

I think it was just part of the show. If there was any underlying meaning behind it, I'm sure magazines would have exploited it back then.

Ozzy pulls Zakks hair pretty violent on the
Budokan-dvd. Can't remember which song though
but it's one of the early ones.

Oh I'd never seen that, but Im not really a Zakk fan. Yeah, I see it's theatre - it's just sometimes it seemed to me a little over the top. Well that's Ozzy for ya. hah.

thanks all.

Live at the Budokan 2002 with Zakk was pretty brutal too. That's no wig on Zakk's head!!!!

One of those guys should have or in Zak's case should go up behind Ozzy and yank on his hair for awhile! :lol: Oz is so fried he'd probably think it would feel good!
