I just recently re-read a transcript of a seminar RR did about 6 weeks before he died. He plainly stated that he ran a MXR Distortion +, and except for the quiet/clean parts, it was always on. He also said he had a terrible time with the over-overdriven/cheap pickups howling/whistling feedback, and that he had to ride the volume knobs pretty hard to keep it at bay. He also had an MXR 6 band eq (the blue one without a switch) in his chain that I can only presume contributed greatly to the feedback.
Great guitarist, but the Blizzard of Ozz tone was terrible. Great songs, terrible tone. Same thing with the Tribute album; it's damn near unlistenable. But, your mileage may vary.
yeh,i just wish i could play so badly...
