Following his first tour of Europe as a solo artist, cut short and changed to a residency at a mental health facility in England (so ‘very Ozzy’) “On December 30, the band began the United States portion of the tour at the “The Cow Palace” Arena in Daly City, California. At this time, Rhoads received the Best New Talent Award (1981) from Guitar Player Magazine. After the opening night, the band headed back to Los Angeles for their last show at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.” (wikipedia)
