Diary of a Madman is an album by Ozzy Osbourne. It was released on November 7, 1981, and re-issued on August 22, 1995. An altered version appeared in 2002. This is the last album with Randy Rhoads before his untimely death in 1982. Although bassist Rudy Sarzo and drummer Tommy Aldridge are credited in the liner notes and pictured on the inner sleeve, it was bassist Bob Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake who performed all bass and drum parts on the original release. They were not given credit for their contributions.
The RIAA certified Diary of a Madman Gold (500,000 units sold) on January 04 1982, Platinum (1 million units sold) on May 10 1982, Multi-platinum (2) (2 million units, known unofficially as Double Platinum) on August 11 1992 and MP (3) (3 million units, known unofficially as Triple Platinum) on October 26 1994.
The 2002 Diary of a Madman reissue was derided by fans due to its replacement of the original bass and drum tracks by Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake. Osbourne's 90s touring band (drummer Mike Bordin and bassist Robert Trujillo; now in Metallica) replaced Daisley's and Kerslake's original instrumentations. Fans and critics generally felt the move was dishonest and resulted in a far inferior product. In 1986 (see 1986 in music), Daisley and Kerslake had pressed charges against Osbourne, eventually winning songwriting credits on Diary of a Madman. Osbourne's wife and manager, Sharon, said in a press conference that "because of Daisley and Kerslake's abusive and unjust behaviour, Ozzy wanted to remove them from these recordings. We turned a negative into a positive by adding a fresh sound to the original albums."
Fans tended to disagree: the reissue credits didn't highlight the fact that the parts had been re-recorded yet it was obvious to those who knew the original issue that something had been altered. Daisley and Kerslake deny the allegations of "abusive behaviour" and continue to battle for royalties owed them for their work on Diary Of A Madman.
