Rare Recording of Randy Rhoads' First Show With Ozzy Goes Online

The Metal Den continue to post rare Randy Rhoads content as the anniversary of his death on March 19th approaches. Today they have uncovered the historic first show Randy Rhoads played with Ozzy from September 12, 1980 at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland. It was the ultimate introduction of arguably the greatest electric guitar player that ever lived: Randy Rhoads. The actual audio recording of that concert is indeed a rarity.

Sharon Osbourne recalls the show: "We were all really, really nervous. In the days of variety, Glaswegians were said to be the most difficult of any audience in Britain, especially on a Friday night, which this was, when they got paid and got pissed. I didn't tell Ozzy � he was nervous enough already, on and off the toilet shaking with stage fright. Before the doors opened they were lining up round the block, and we were all in shock.

The show was unbelievable. At the end, Ozzy knelt down and kissed the stage. "Thank you, thank you, I love you, love you," he said, his voice breaking with emotion. And we all cried, the three of us: Ozzy, Randy and me, sobbing with tears of joy, and we could still hear voices from the auditorium calling for more� he had done it. He had f***ing done it." - Check it out here
