Best Ozzy Osbourne Guitarists

The Top Ten

1 Randy Rhoads Randy Rhoads Randall William "Randy" Rhoads was an American heavy metal guitarist who played with Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot. He was killed in a plane crash.

Whether Randy Rhoads followed Ronnie James Dio's advice to "Die Young" (on Black Sabbath's epic 'Heaven and Hell' CD) is debatable nonsense. When Ozzy left Black Sabbath to do his solo act, I have no doubts that Randy Rhoads was his best guitarist out of all the great musicians he's performed with (except of course, the one and only Tony Iommi with Black Sabbath).

There is no other answer. Only Randy Rhoads. Anyone who says otherwise is wrong. End of discussion.

Randy's guitar playing and his song writing are legendary. He was and still is recognized as one of the best all time.

Randy was the best, he was such a unique musician. To call him a guitarist would be an insult to his real musicianship - TermonatorT888

2 Zakk Wylde Zakk Wylde Zakk Wylde is an American musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and occasional actor who is best known as the former guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and founder of the heavy metal band Black Label Society.

Zakk needs to focus a little more on the music and a little less on the pinch harmonics

There is no best Ozzy guitarist. They are all talented but Zakk Wylde is my favorite - Sabbath

3 Jake E Lee

Jake is a very close second to Randy. Jake is so damn good and he does not over use the damn pinch harmonics that Zakk Wylde tends to play after every 6 notes. Randy had the spark that put him at number 1 but Jake deserves much more credit than he got - TermonatorT888

Randy is a legend, but I just prefer Jake, he's underrated. Great sound, rich tone, fantastic licks, musicality, songwriting, one of a kind, simply unbeatable!

Jake E Kee is supposed to be in second place, and that's being nice, he deserves to be up there at number 1 palace along with Randy.

Zakk will never even come close to how good Jake was in Ozzy’s band. Ever.
