No. 7: Ozzy Osbourne, ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

Ozzy Osbourne, 'Blizzard of Ozz'

When then-former Black Sabbath vocalist Ozzy Osbourne met Quiet Riot guitarist Randy Rhoads, we can only imagine that the clouds parted as a beam of white light illuminated the duo.

Rhoads was already respected as a guitarist, but his iconic riffs and masterful shredding within ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ turned him into a living legend. Tracks such as ‘Crazy Train,’ ‘Mr. Crowley’ and ‘Suicide Solution’ solidified as one of, if not the best, metal guitarist of his time … oh, and Ozzy’s vocals are pretty awesome too.
