Shannon said: some of the content of this book was very entertaining and interesting. However, there was also. It is for those reasons that bassist Bob Daisley’s For Facts Sake is so special. It isn’t padded. It isn’t ghost-written. It is loaded with pictures that.

The great thing about quibbles is that they recede when over matched by the quality of the story told. In a choice between relatively equal drummers, loyalty trumped the machinations of Ozzy and Sharon to close ranks on the rest of the daiwley.

You will laugh, you will be taken aback, you will be informed, you will recognize many names and learn of new ones, you will nod your head at times, at other times call bullshit, and yes, you will weep when a death in the rock and roll family shakes us to our blues roots. The box reissues and anniversary box set could have had much more bonus material, since he has an archive full of writing sessions, rehearsals and clips of songs taking shape.


Timothy marked it as to-read Jul 22, Geez, Ace not Axe. His frank discussion of his place in the band and his feelings about the situation will curry no favor with Ozzy’s wife and manager Sharon Osbourne, and Daisley certainly slings the mud, since he feels he was wronged and wants to set the record straight.

He assaulted my childhood guitar hero Rhoads when Rhoads wanted out of the band another shocking revelation. Funny thing is, Harris and Butler are both admittedly fans of Bob Who.

Ted marked it as to-read Feb 13, There were plenty of emotional roller coasters with it. Even without these amazing images, For Facts Sake would still succeed in telling a compelling story of fatcs man who has spent nearly his entire life in the music industry.

Fool me once, shame on you. John Dorricott marked it as to-read Mar 04, Daniel Drago rated it really liked it Apr 01, saisley When I did that, he was fine. I think that is the difference between writing it yourself, and using a ghostwriter. Bob and I share similar-yet-nuanced views on all the biggies: Love the foreign film sniff test line! Trivia About For Facts Sake. Craig Swartz rated it liked it Oct 12, Saoe Bedore rated it it was amazing Nov 08, I consider myself a Randy Rhoads fan above all.

Thanks for wasting my time, Sharon, with your fickle revolving door of musicians! He was never the specialist soloist like John Entwistlenever the limelight-grabber like Billy Sheehanand for sheer bassist name-recognition, even hard rock fans would more likely cite the galloping hooves of Steve Harris or the pounding doom of Geezer Butler over the studied sturdiness of Bob Who?

I daiwley no doubt this guy is an insanely talented bassist and didn’t get a lot of money and credits he was owed.


So he is also at fault in some ways. The real facts are that his gig with Ozzy was the best and most lucrative time of his career. As much as I love Ozzy, and that’s a lot I’ve always said that there’s never been anybody in the biz that’s never really written anything make more money Ernie Pena marked it as to-read Dec 24, He didn’t need to catch us up on all his latest slights and “been done wrongs” up until the day before the book went to press; that made him seem like a whiner.

The tracks played by Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake on both albums were replaced on a previous reissue after Daisley and Kerslake sued Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne over royalties. I’m glad i read his story, I just think it could have been a better read had it been organized and written by an actual writer.

Viviente rated it liked it Oct 09, Want to Read Currently Reading Read. I sense, in reading all the details, that Daisley always wanted to believe in the anxious and unsure bloke he met when The Blizzard of Ozz first saoe, the one who dedicated his heart to his bandmates. Ace I often wondered about how the Blizzard band and others in Ozzy’s camp were paid Let me repeat that: It’s taken me over four years to complete.

All of which makes it even sadder to see how Daisley and others have been treated. Kyle marked it as to-read May 20, At least Morrison wrote his own lyrics.

I am very thrilled you wrote this book. Return to Book Page.
