You may be right. Much to the dismay of those who don't understand humor or just plain honesty. Thanks.
ILee Kerslake’s contribution on those first two Ozzy albums can never be denied; although there was an attempt to do just that! The shameful 2002 reissues which replaced Lee’s original drum parts with new parts by Mike Bordin must go down as one of the most shameful, spiteful acts in rock history. For this reason I found Ozzy’s Facebook message particularly hard to swallow:
"It’s been 39 years since I’ve seen Lee but he lives for ever on the records he played on for me, Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman. Lee Kerslake RIP"
I’m glad that at least Ozzy granted his dying wish in 2019 to finally get platinum disc awards for those albums.
RIP Lee. ? ?
I had no idea he was on Blizzard of Oz and Diary of a Madman. Just read that Tommy Aldridge makes sure to give Lee credit always when it comes up. Crazy, but that’s how it goes. I learn something new every day.
RIP Lee Kerslake. You unknowingly (to me) were very important in helping shape who I am today. Say hi to Randy for us.
Besides the general sadness that has occurred with his death, I cannot help but to think of how $haron screwed him and did the unthinkable by recording over his parts.
