I have never heard that, from the phot's I have seen from the show he had no stage set and the venue was very small indeed.

This is something I've always been curious about, as far as I know I've never seen any photos from this show. The shots on the album weren't taken at the show as far as I know, but I could be wrong.
This album was recorded in September 1982 and I know Ozzy shaved his head baldthe month before, at the begining of August, so did he have a bald head, never seen any photos of Ozzy playing an indoor gig with a bald head, on the UK Tour a few months later his hair was very short but had just started coming back ( see photo)
I have read that Ozzy wore a wig at certain shows but not sure if he did at the Speak shows, any photos out there.

Ozzy onstage in December 1982, a few months after shaving his head completely bald.

I am going to hunt the photo's down, i had forgoten that I hadn't posted them into this thread. I am However, at long last uploading this show along with others for the additional audio section. I was on the phone to Joe earlier tonight arranging it :) The boot audio for the 'SOTD' album has different versions to some of the tracks that made the released album and the sound quality is pretty good as well :wink:

Every time I see Ozzy with short hair, I shudder.

Here are some Youtube videos of Brad Gillis playing during the Speak Of The Devil Tour. This would of been an awesome show to see for sure.

I remember reading that Ozzy had a book of Sabbath lyrics set up on a little lit table he would reference while rehearsing for the show, but, never heard of him sitting and reading during the actual shows.

Ozzy re-recorded the lyrics to some if not all the tracks later, so he might well have been reading them as he sang because with the benefit of re-records he had the time to tighten it up.

Just re listened to Speak of The Devil and it has reminded me I seldom put it on. I find Brad's over use of the whammy bar and his macho approach to Randy's music completely missing the point.

Thinking further on the subject. I think a lot of guitarists; famous and unknown, approach the music with the same muscle bound mind set. Jake E Lee in my opinion was different in this respect because he added a real finesse and style to the RR's solos, while making them his own too.

I think one of the most common flaws, in many of the RR Tribute guitarists in particular, is they use a very vibrato which Randy didn't have. He used a very unique vibrato and like everything he did, he used it carefully and tastefully, not on every opportunity.
