On This Day In 1980 Ozzy Went Solo On 'Blizzard Of Ozz'

Originally released in the UK on September 20, 1980, Blizzard of Ozz is the debut solo studio album from Ozzy Osbourne, following his departure from Black Sabbath. Ozzy's new band included guitar phenom Randy Rhoads, who co-wrote most of the album with bassist Bob Daily and Ozzy. Featuring the singles "Crazy Train" and "Mr. Crowley", as well as album cuts like "I Don't Know", "Suicide Solution" and "Goodbye To Romance", the album was both a critical and commercial success, peaking at #7 in the UK and #20 in the US, and selling over 5 million copies in the US alone.

In honor of the 42nd anniversary, check out a few videos taken from that era.
