The image on this button is a version of the cover art for Blizzard of Oz, the debut solo album by British heavy metal and hard rock vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. The album was released in the UK in September 1980 and in the US in March 1981, and was the first release from Osbourne since he was fired from the group Black Sabbath in 1979. The majority of the album was written by Osbourne, guitarist Randy Rhoads and bassist Bob Daisley. Rhoads recorded a second album with Osbourne, Diary of a Madman, released in 1981, prior to Rhoads' death in a plane accident while touring in 1982.
