💿💿💿SCRAPS...FROM THE PAST💿💿💿 Robert John Bob Daisley was born in 1950 in Australia. He was a bass player and songwriter well known for membership in top band as Ozzy Osbourne, Rainbow, Gary Moore's and Uriah Heep. The first work was Mecca's only single release "Black Sally", an underground hit and was covered by Human Instinct on their Stoned Guitar album. Then formed Kahvas Jute with Tamam Shud and with them he released one album, Wide Open, on Infinity Records in 1971. Then he was member of the English blues band Chicken Shack in 1972, before going on to play with Mungo Jerry in 1973 and on their 1974 album Long-Legged Woman Dressed in Black. After this he co-formed Widowmaker, contributing to two albums – 1975's self-titled debut and "Too Late to Cry" in 1977. The same year he joined Ritchie Blackmore's band Rainbow playing on well-known album "Long Live Rock 'N' Roll". He remained with Rainbow until 1979 before the entry of @roger glover, after his experience in Deep Purple. In October 1979, Daisley met Ozzy Osbourne in London and Osbourne suggested they form a band with Quiet Riot guitarist Randy Rhoads, drummer Lee Kerslake and settled on the band name The Blizzard of Ozz, though a record company billed the act simply as "Ozzy Osbourne". Daisley contributed bass and backing vocals as well as songwriting and co-production on the masterpiece "Blizzard of Ozz", and on follow-up album "Diary of a Madman" but both he and drummer Lee Kerslake were fired before the album was released. Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge appeared in their place in the artwork and credits of that album. Daisley continued to write and record for Osbourne, playing "Bark at the Moon (1983)" The Ultimate Sin (1986)", and "No Rest for the Wicked (1988"). He maintained his working relationship with the Osbournes up until 1991's "No More Tears" album, which featured his bass playing on all tracks. Mike Inez appeared in the album's clips. After leaving Osbourne's band the first time, Daisley joined the reformed Uriah Heep in 1981 recording two albums, "Abominog" and "Head First". During his on-off involvement with Osbourne, Daisley also recorded many albums with Gary Moore and toured with him. In 1986 he was approached by producer Jeff Glixman to play on the BLACK SABBATH album "The Eternal Idol" as the band's actual bass player Dave Spitz had personal commitments to attend to. However, Spitz was credited on the final release. Daisley was offered the bassist's spot in Black Sabbath but turned it down due to his commitment to Moore. He continued to work with Gary Moore from time to time until the guitarist's death. Since the 1980s, Daisley has contributed to a wealth of recordings as bassist, lyricist and producer, including albums by Yngwie Malmsteen, Takara, Bill Ward, Black Sabbath and Jeff Watson of Night Ranger. Daisley and Watson teamed up again and formed Mother's Army with vocalist Joe Lynn Turner and drummer Carmine Appice Himself. In 2003, following his second and unsuccessful suit against Ozzy Osbourne, he teamed up with Lee Kerslake, Steve Morse of Deep Purple and Australian rock singer Jimmy Barnes - Official to record an album under the name Living Loud. #rainbow #deeppurple #blacksabbath #uriaheep #hardrockheavymetal #hardrock #garymoore (Pics caught on FB, we aren't owners of the rights)
