1983. Bark At The Moon
It is the first of Osbourne’s solo studio albums to not feature guitarist Randy Rhoads who was killed a year earlier in a plane crash. This album features former Mickey Ratt, Rough Cutt, and Dio guitarist Jake E. Lee.
This is the only Ozzy Osbourne album on which the songwriting credits are given solely to Osbourne. However, he stated several years later in the liner notes to The Ozzman Cometh that the title track was in fact co-written by Jake E. Lee. Osbourne’s bassist at the time, Bob Daisley, has stated that he co-wrote most of the music with Lee and wrote the vast majority of the lyrics. Due to legal issues, neither Lee nor Daisley’s names were listed in the songwriting credits. Daisley has stated, however, that he accepted a buyout from Osbourne in exchange for writing credit.
