    some may not like this song, even call it cheesy or else... but every true rocker should respect it for its lyrics let alone its partly Rhoads child

    I agree that Randy was the best "team mate" for Oz, but Jake E. Lee destroyed the US festival with Randy's songs, Zakk went note for note on the first tour and if you get your hands on the Brad Gillis live gigs when he filled in on the Diary tour Ozzy picked some pretty good fill ins. Too bad Gary Moore turned down his request to replace Randy. That would have been amazing.

    Yeah gdc i don't think Ozzy ever found that bond,connection,magic,etc. again like he had with Randy but i do think he came close with Zakk.I think the albums No More Tears and Ozzmosis were really good and those were Zakk's best work.

    "ozzy never ever found another guitarist who even came close" ???????? C'mon Mike. Are you kidding me. Randy was awesome, but have you heard the crap he put out with Quiet Riot? Zakk must have 30 albums and they ALL rip. Plus he sings like a MoFo. Jake was a child prodigy (piano), but a giant A-hole too. That being said - Diary, Blizzard and Tribute are Ozzy's best.

Lyrics

How many times can they fill me with lies and I listen, again
Twisting the truth and they're playin' around with my head O.K.
The things they will do and the things they will say
When they don't really understand
