Before anyone shoots me down - I have found this on the web,

Never seen Randy and the original line up with a Black Les Paul before - anyone?!

It looks to me as if the photo was taken on tour but not at The Plough Inn which was the pub they went to when recording at Ridge Farm. Lee's wearing a back-stage pass so it was probably taken at some venue before a gig, hence no drinks on the table. Randy looks as if he's already dressed to go on stage but he didn't use a black Les Paul on the UK tour so who knows where that came from?!

That guitar is one of John Thomas's guitar's that he had on the 1980 UK tour. Randy was getting used to playing it as he had it on stage as a second guitar in case he snapped a string. I mentioned this guitar a while ago but the thread must of been lost when the site went down a few years ago. I had a conversation with JT about this guitar a few months before he died. Its a '68 LP which has recently been sold by a guitar shop that collects guitars from the stars. I seen a photo from the Hammersmith odeon and you can see this guitar and the PDV on stands at the side of the stage. But i cannot find the photo, it was one of Ross Halfin's.

I would say that the black & white photo is from Glasgow looking at what clothes the band are wearing here viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8609&hilit=Glasgow+apollo ...coincidence or not but Lee's pass is clipped on in the same position. Both Bob and Ozzy have the same clothes on. A bit detective work on my behalf and i have this photo wrapped up ;-) I must admit i did originally think it was taking in the Plough pub while recording Blizzard.
