Bob's Platinum Award Disc For 'Blizzard Of Ozz'

Bob would like to thank members of Ultimate Rhoads for alerting him to the fact that a dealer in music memorabilia was attempting to sell the platinum disc that he was awarded for his contribution to the album 'Blizzard of Ozz'. After seeing the listing on eBay, Bob made the following statement:

'That is the platinum award disc for 'Blizzard of Ozz' that I was supposed to receive from Canada but didn't. I got all the others from the US and Canada but not that one for some reason. It's rightfully mine and no one else has the right to sell it and make money from it. I would never sell, give away or part with any of my award discs.'

Bob's message was passed on to the woman selling the disc on eBay. She was informed, as was eBay, that the award disc is stolen property. The woman responded with:

'To assume that this is a stolen item is unjustified.'

The fact remains, the award bears the name 'Bob Daisley', so whoever took it did so knowing that it was awarded to and intended for Bob and nobody else. We were told that she had removed the platinum award disc from eBay. We asked if she would contact Bob to discuss the matter further but that hasn't happened as yet and our last email to her hasn't been acknowledged.

Bob's Lyrics For Three More Albums

The correct versions of the lyrics that Bob wrote for 'Bark at the Moon', 'The Ultimate Sin' and 'No Rest for the Wicked' are now on the website.

Bob's Lyrics

Over the years, I've noticed that many of the lyrics that I've written have been reproduced inaccurately, not only on the Internet but on actual album notes as well. To rectify this, I thought that it would be a good idea to have the true and correct wording as a reference on my website. Everything that I've written will gradually be documented but it seems only fitting to kick off with the lyrics for 'Blizzard of Ozz' and 'Diary of a Madman' to mark the 30th Anniversary of these two classic albums.

Randy Rhoads Documentary - Bob Daisley Speaks Out

Bob has received several messages via his website, MySpace and Facebook pages regarding insulting comments written on a Facebook page by Peter Margolis, the director of a film about Randy Rhoads.The comments were recently removed but not before they were circulated and discussed on various forums by fans wanting to know what happened between Bob and the film maker to prompt such animosity.

The following comments were made by Peter Margolis…

‘I interviewed 2 people in Australia.
One of them was one of the worst human beings that I have ever encountered in my years on this planet. The other was Scott Shelly, who was possibly the nicest person that I interviewed for the film.’

When asked if Bob and Lee were going to appear in the Randy Rhoads documentary Margolis wrote:

‘I interviewed both Lee and Bob.
Lee in England and Bob in Australia
Lee was a really great guy.
Does that answer your question?’

He was then asked..

‘Peter, I hope Bob wasn’t the other person you were talking about, when you stated that Scott Shelly was perhaps the nicest person you had ever met???????????????’

To which Margolis replied:

‘I met some of the greatest human beings while shooting this movie, and some of the worst.
People that don’t deserve to occupy space on the same planet that we all reside on.
That is all I will say on the subject until the film comes out.’

If the rumours are true, we may be in for a long wait to hear more ‘on the subject’ from Margolis. Fortunately, Bob has agreed to speak out and tell us exactly what went on during his involvement with the makers of the Randy Rhoads Documentary...
