In , Osbourne left the band for three months to pursue a solo project he called Blizzard of Ozz ,  a title which had been suggested by his father.
At the request of the other members, Osbourne rejoined Sabbath. We'd go down to the sessions, and have to pack up because we were too stoned; we'd have to stop.
Nobody could get anything right, we were all over the place, everybody's playing a different thing. We'd go back and sleep it off, and try again the next day.
Touring in support of Never Say Die! Reviewers called Sabbath's performance "tired and uninspired", in stark contrast to the "youthful" performance of Van Halen, who were touring the world for the first time.
The final show of the tour — and Osbourne's last appearance with the band until — was in Albuquerque, New Mexico on 11 December.
In , back in the studio, tension and conflict arose between the members. Osbourne recalls being asked to record his vocals over and over, and tracks being manipulated endlessly by Iommi.
Osbourne claims his drug use and alcohol consumption at that time was neither better nor worse than that of the other members. The band replaced him with former Rainbow singer Ronnie James Dio.
Conflict had existed between Iommi and Osbourne from the beginning. When Iommi saw Osbourne emerge from another room of the house, he left upon discovering it was the same "pest" he knew from growing up, as he knew of and disliked Osbourne from back in their school days.
Iommi pulled Osbourne off Butler in an attempt to break up the drunken fight, and the vocalist proceeded to turn around and take a wild swing at him.
Iommi responded by knocking Osbourne unconscious with one punch to the jaw. My thinking was, 'This is my last party, because after this I'm going back to Birmingham and the dole.
Arden dispatched his daughter Sharon to Los Angeles to "look after Ozzy's needs, whatever they were", to protect his investment.
If drummers were trying out, I played guitar, and if a bassist came along, my drummer would help out.
We felt sorry for him, basically. He was always hovering around trying to get me to join, and I wasn't having any of it. The record company would eventually title the group's debut album Blizzard of Ozz , credited simply to Osbourne, thus commencing his solo career.
Cowritten with Daisley and Rhoads, it brought Osbourne considerable success on his first solo effort.
Though it is generally accepted that Osbourne and Rhoads started the band, Daisley later claimed that he and Osbourne formed the band in England before Rhoads officially joined.
Blizzard of Ozz is one of the few albums amongst the best-sellers of the s to have achieved multi-platinum status without the benefit of a top single.
And I had a thoroughly miserable time. Osbourne's second album, Diary of a Madman , featured more songs co-written with Lee Kerslake. For his work on this album and Blizzard of Ozz , Rhoads  was ranked the 85th-greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine in Aldridge had been Osbourne's original choice for drummer, but a commitment to Gary Moore had made him unavailable.
A light aircraft piloted by Andrew Aycock the band's tour bus driver — carrying Rhoads and Rachel Youngblood, the band's costume and make-up designer — crashed while performing low passes over the band's tour bus.
The left wing of the aircraft clipped the bus, causing the plane to graze a tree and crash into the garage of a nearby mansion, killing Rhoads, Aycock, and Youngblood.
The crash was ruled the result of "poor judgement by the pilot in buzzing the bus and misjudging clearance of obstacles". The tour was cancelled for two weeks while Osbourne, Sharon, and Aldridge returned to Los Angeles to take stock while Sarzo remained in Florida with family.
Gary Moore was the first approached to replace Rhoads, but refused. After a handful of shows he informed Sharon that he would be returning to England to continue work on a solo album he had begun before coming to America.
A live tribute album for Rhoads was also later released. Despite the difficulties, Osbourne moved on after Rhoads' death. Speak of the Devil , known in the United Kingdom as Talk of the Devil , was originally planned to consist of live recordings from , primarily from Osbourne's solo work.

Osbourne's first experience with cocaine was in early at a hotel in Denver, Colorado , after a show Black Sabbath had done with Mountain.
It's like having your first fuck! Osbourne's drug and alcohol abuse have at times caused friction within his band. Don Airey , keyboardist for Osbourne during his early solo career, has said that the vocalist's substance-abuse issues were what ultimately caused him to leave the band.
When he was able to perform, his voice was often so damaged from cigarettes and alcohol that the performance suffered. Many shows on the American leg of the Diary of a Madman tour were simply canceled, and the members of his band quickly began to tire of the unpredictability, coupled with the often violent mood swings he was prone to when drunk.
Osbourne claims in his autobiography that he was invited in to a meeting with the head of CBS Europe in Germany.

Throughout his career, many religious groups have accused Osbourne of being a negative influence on teenagers, stating that his genre of rock music has been used to glorify Satanism.
Scholar Christopher M. Moreman compared the controversy to those levelled against the occultist Aleister Crowley. Both were demonised by the media and some religious groups for their antics.
