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.

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.

Rhoads was by far the best guitarist Ozzy had.

Randy was a visionary. Of all the guitarists that played with Oz, you can assemble a timeline from the first recorded notes with Oz to the last of the final bootleg before the crash and chart his growth and development, not only technically as a player, but as a fully formed musician. Had he lived he would have certainly outgrown Ozzy. Not as a slam to Oz but Randy's desire to continue to grow and achieve as a musician would have eventually rendered his playing "off brand" for Ozzy. A brand, he single handedly created. Blizzard of Oz musically wasn't an offshoot of Sabbath (Randy despised playing the Sabbath songs). It was the music of Randy, and the Words of Bob Daisley.

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

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.

Randy was great, no doubt about it, but Jake, his music, his playing WOWS me just a little bit more!

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