Bob Daisley is an Australian bassist, songwriter, and author. He is best known for playing bass guitar with Ozzy Osbourne, as well as songwriting and co-production on the group's first album, Blizzard of Ozz. He also co-wrote much of the material on the follow-up album Diary of a Madman. He continued to write and record for Ozzy throughout the 1980s, playing on and writing for Bark at the Moon (1983), The Ultimate Sin (1986 writing only), and No Rest for the Wicked (1988). He maintained his working relationship with Osbourne up until 1991's No More Tears album, which featured his bass playing on all tracks.
He has also played and recorded with Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Gary Moore and Uriah Heep. Since the 1980s, Daisley has contributed to a wealth of recordings as bassist, songwriter, lyricist and producer, including albums by Yngwie Malmsteen, Takara, Bill Ward, and Jeff Watson of Night Ranger. Daisley and Watson teamed up again and formed Mother's Army with vocalist Joe Lynn Turner and drummer Carmine Appice. In 2003, he teamed up with Lee Kerslake, Steve Morse and Don Airey of Deep Purple, and Australian rock singer Jimmy Barnes to record an album under the name Living Loud. Six of the album's eleven tracks were new versions of songs from Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman. On 7 February 2003 Daisley recorded a live show at The Basement in Sydney with Australian blues band The Hoochie Coochie Men, for a live DVD and CD release. Featured were former Deep Purple organist Jon Lord and Jimmy Barnes. In 2007, The Hoochie Coochie Men released the studio album Danger: White Men Dancing, also featuring Jon Lord. In September 2014, Daisley was hired to produce the debut album of Adelaide-based hard rock band Cherry Grind. Recently, Daisley has been recording a tribute to Gary Moore album featuring much of the Gary Moore family tree, to be released within the first half of this year, 2018.
He is currently working on creating his BD signature bass featuring the KSM Foundation Bass Bridge.
Daisley's autobiography For Facts Sake was published in August 2013.
