Ozzy Releases New Video for Classic Song ‘Flying High Again’

In support of the 40th anniversary re-release of Diary of a Madman, Ozzy Osbourne has dropped a whole new video for the song “Flying High Again.”

Instead of featuring footage of Osbourne, the clip uses images taken from the Ross Halfin book Randy Rhoads, which arrived in September. “I only knew Randy Rhoads for a couple of years, but it felt longer,” Osbourne says of the guitarist, who died in 1982 at the age of 25. “I felt like I knew him for my whole life. I still think about him a lot and I wonder what he would be doing now. I owe him a huge amount — he was the beginning of me. He wasn’t just my guitarist; he was my friend.”

The expanded edition of Diary of a Madman, as well as the new video, dropped Friday.

Would Osbourne’s solo career have been successful if Rhoads hadn’t been there to help launch it?
