The show sucked!
Happy to know that he's putting out good stuff now. I'll buy this CD.
Must have been a bad night for Jake.
I have heard and seen numerous boots of Jake with Ozzy, Jake had no problem playing Randy's licks, in fact he made it look easy, considering he was jumping around most of the time while playing them. I even liked when he would add his own twist to some of the licks. Plus I always thought Jake's bends and vibrato were much better than Randy's, which I thought sucked...(here come the flames).
Here's some clips of Jake with Ozzy that I have posted a link to several times in the past.
Doesn't seem like he's struggling at all.
Plus I have a clip of Jake playing Revelation Mother Earth which he nails. When I have the time i'll upload that.
As for the new CD i'll check it out.
