One day back in the summer of ’83 I stopped by the Vancouver offices of CBS Records and did an interview with Rudy Sarzo, who was one of the top hard rock/metal bassists around at the time.
Sarzo was in town promoting Metal Health, the new release from his band Quiet Riot, which was the first heavy-metal album to hit #1 on the Billboard album chart.
I didn’t mind Quiet Riot–any band that covers Slade’s “Cum on Feel the Noize” is okay with me–but I was mostly keen to chat with Sarzo because of his previous work with Ozzy Osbourne and, more importantly, Ozzy guitarist Randy Rhoads.
Here’s a couple of excerpts from the interview:
