The only Ozzy tribute you´ll ever need!

No other name in the history of music is as synonymous with Heavy Metal as Ozzy. For nearly 4 decades, this madman has been entertaining people around the planet. But he´s had some serious help along the way from a stellar cast of musicians who have surrounded him in the studio and on stage.

This CD, released by the label Magick Records (part of the Cleopatra Entertainment conglomerate), is as much a tribute to the mighty Blizzard of Ozz band and its often overlooked, but no less crucial heroes like Bob Daisley, Lee Kerslake and Don Airey, as it is to legends like Randy Rhoads, Jake E. Lee and Zakk Wylde, who have become pillars in the temple of Hard Rock guitar heroism.

While there have been numerous tributes to the music of Ozzy Osbourne over the years, this one stands above the rest in terms of sheer star power, diversity of styles and generational importance. Featuring old school legends like Motorhead´s Lemmy, Lita Ford, Joe Lynn Turner, Dee Snider, Yngwie Malmsteen and George Lynch, and even some musicians who have actually performed with the Ozzman, like Brad Gillis, Tommy Aldridge and Alex Skolnick.

Those legends are side by side with today´s rising wave of titans like Children of Bodom and Icarus Witch, who carries the Metal torch brighty into the next aeon.

With members of KISS, Motorhead, Dio, Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Testament, Dream Theater, Armored Saint, Whitesnake, Rainbow and Night Rangers, among others, FLYING HIGH AGAIN is, indeed, THE World´s Greatest Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne!
