eyes

I have read several statements about Jake's eye sight being bad. And now some are saying he is almost blind! Any truth to it? God I hope not. Of course his eyes will get worse with age no matter how well someone can see when they're younger. Its the "my arms not long enough" stage.

don't buy in to the rumours ;)
I won't believe anything until Jake himself confirms it,
but then again, we're only here for the music, correct? 8)

There was an interview from way back where Jake talked about Ozzy loosing his temper with Jake because he said he was playing out of time. Jake said Ozzy said to him....'Are you deaf as well as fuckin blind'

The interview was from about 1983 with loads of black and white photos. I had it years ago but dont know the name of the magazine.

i guess it was a kinda metaphore for Jake having his own idea of musical concept/structuality which has had not being the same as Ozzys thoughts inmost of the time, likely too weird or too commercial

THAT BASTARD :evil: Ozzy not Jake....God knows I know what it is like to have bad eyes.....I wasn't hired for a job this past week because my eyes were too bad with out my contacts in. I've worn glasses/contact since I was 6 years old...When Ozzy has Sharon leading him around by the balls :roll: ...someone with poor vision must not deserve any respect from him...Please excuse the grammer.

His eyesight might be bad but who knows. All I know is he was able to see clearly enough to give me an autograph :D

That's funny!! Yeah, JAKE's eye vision is not very good...'that's why he wears spectacles/shades. Maybe contact lenes, too. All in all I'm sure, Mr. Lee has his vision checked & well taken care of.

Yeah, your eye-sight is nothing to play around with: I myself have pretty fuzzy vision (I'm near sighted) and wear eye-glasses. I have to drag myself to the Optometrist when it comes time for an eye check-up. All those gadgets they have to do with the eyes in all. But it's for the best vision possible. So get your eyes checked, everyone!! 8)
