OZZY's 1980 Record Blizzard Of Ozz Certified Quintuple Platinum In The U.S.
Ozzy Osbourne released his debut solo album Blizzard Of Ozz in 1980. The record contained such hits as "Crazy Train," "Mr. Crowley" and "Suicide Solution," and has sold pretty well over the years. Blizzard Of Ozz was certified as quadruple platinum, meaning it's sold 4 million copies, in August 1997, and now two decades later has been bumped up to quintuple platinum, or 5 million sales.
Blizzard Of Ozz was reissued in 2002 with bassist Robert Trujillo (Metallica, ex-Suicidal Tendencies, ex-Infectious Grooves) and drummer Mike Bordin (Faith No More) replacing the original performances of bassist Bob Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake. In 2011, Blizzard Of Ozz was reissued once more with the original tracks from Daisley and Kerslake.
Blizzard Of Ozz is also certified as platinum by the CRIA in Canada, meaning it's sold over 100,000 copies, and silver in the UK by the BPI, meaning it's sold over 60,000 copies.
