Ozzy went on to a solo career, with Ronnie James Dio taking his place in Sabbath. Over the course of his solo career he continued to record hit albums, including The Blizzard of Ozz, Diary of a Madman, No More Tears, and 2007s Black Rain. Over the course of his solo career, his band has included established performers like the late Randy Rhoads of Quiet Riot, and Zakk Wylde of Quiet Riot, as well as providing opportunities to unestablished performers like Randy Trujillo, who would later replace Jason Newsted as Metallica's Bassist.In 1996 Ozzy started the heavy metal touring concert festival Ozzfest, which was held annually until 2009, during which Ozzy canceled the festival to focus on his new album. In 2000 Ozzy became a television star through the MTV reality TV show The Osbournes, featuring himself, his wife Sharon, and his children Kelly and Jack (his daughter Aimee declined to be in the program). He has also taken time to perform motion capture for the Guitar Hero games, as well as doing voice acting for Brutal Legend.
