Crazy Train, by Ozzy (A Christian Parody) The Dragon Is Slain

Dude, I will never forget riding out to "Karma Records" in Anderson, IN. to pick up the "EX lead singer for Black Sabbath" -- Ozzy Osbourn's DEBUT album--"Blizzard of Ozz."  I had NEVER heard of Randy Rhoads.  The cover was kind of spooky... but that was to be expected coming from a guy with Black Sabbath on their resume.

To be 100% honest, I don't know if I would have gotten all that excited (at that point) about Ozzy, if my friend Paul Hickner--a Tony Iommi/Black Sabbath fan--hadn't said to me, "Dude, you gotta check this album out!"

So on my friends recamendation I bought it... brought it home... put it on ---- and became and instant Ozzy/Randy mega fan.  It was just an amazing collection of music.

Of course---the whole culture/world associated with that music led me to a very dark place.  And when God touched me with His redeeming love and delivered me out of that dark place--I was MORE than happy to say good-bye to all of it... but my appreciation for the music and musicians never faded---and when it was time to put together a collection of Christ-honoring parodies of classic metal songs from "the day"---Crazy Train" HAD to be part of it!  My goal with this song--as with every song on Storm The Gates--was to pay tribute to the song-writing & musicianship that inspired me to become a musician---and to redeem the message of each song for the glory of Christ.  I hope after listening--you think I accomplished both of those goals!
