Would Jimmy Page or Ritchie Blackmore have been a fit Guitar player for Ozzy Osbourne?

Iommi was good cause he was metal and his sound was very heavy and wanted the listeners to know it was metal. Randy had that classical knowledge with a rock influence which help Ozzy have 2 great albums. Jake wasn;t so sure of what was going to happen but he gave it a shot.

Jake wasn;t so sure of what was going to happen but he gave it a shot. He had the chops and it was hard to replace Randy but he was much different than Randy which is why he was so great, and it would not have worked if he tried to copy him.


Jimmy Page used open tunings, and a ot of his riffs were bluesy/rock like Custard Pie and stuff but he can get classical such as Going to California, Babe I am going to leave you, Kashmir, The Rover, Bron Yur Aur, and Randy had Crazy Train well JP wrote great riffs in Black Dog and Whole Lotta Love. Not sure how Ozzy would deal with his open tunings though.


Ritchie was blusy but was also classical. He was careful in his note choice. In Highway Star and Space Truckin he was very bluesy and kept his tone clean.
