Thursday: Ozzy Osbourne - Mr. Crowley

     Hey kids, I'm back! Another weekend away from my desk means another few days of catching up to do. But you know the drill by now, so let's get to it. Your belated Throwback Thursday post this week is a classic cut from the solo catalogue of the man himself, Mr. Ozzy Osbourne.

     The song and its subject, as you may have already read above, are another gentleman, one "Mr Crowley". For the uninitiated (pun sorta intended) Aleister Crowley was, among a number of other things, an occultist and mystic once dubbed "the wickedest man in the world" by his detractors. So, in other words, a fun guy, and the perfect subject for a song by the granddaddy of heavy metal.

     "Mr. Crowley", from Ozzy's 1980 solo debut record Blizzard of Ozz, has long been one of my favourite solo Ozzy songs; where does it rank for you?
