    Sharon’s going to go after Jake for talking about how he wrote bark at the moon considering Ozzy wrote all those songs”NO”! Sad Jake can’t get credit for those great songs!

    I bet he got bought off for writing it. Another Ozzy buy-off for the publishing. Catch these brokesters needing loot and here comes Ozzy with the check and publishing contract sorta like Chess Records.

    That just answered the very question I would have asked had I been there.
    Thank you Jake!

    I would love to see the REAL tabs! Maybe that’s how Jake can make some extra coin! I think it’s disgusting he isn’t paid for that song. I’d argue it’s one of Ozzy’s top 3 songs.

      Agreed. Even more amazing given the circumstances for Jake. Dude just replaces Randy f’n Rhoads, the legend, and goes into a studio and composes a killer track on a killer album. Pure grace under pressure.
