Bernie Tormé – Guitar Legend hred master/ Sleaze Rock Frontman is known for saving the day for Ozzy Osbourne in the aftermath of Randy Rhoad’s tragic death, hits, world tours & international fame as Ian Gillan’s axe-man, forming Desperado with Dee Snider, & ex Maiden drummer Clive Burr, and his own band Electric Gypsies & Torme (with Phil Lewis of L.A. Guns/ Girl).
This man was amazing. He only had two days to pretty much get the whole set complete, he did a great job. He added his own licks to Flying High again, and Mr. Crowley, the recording sounds incredible. He deserves tons of credit !
Bernie Torme played seven shows with Ozzy Osbourne over a 10-day stint with the band, then left, to be regarded as a sell-out / cash-grabber. The opposite is true of this amazing Irish guitarist, who considers this LP as one of his favourites. Oh YES!!!
