The 2002 Diary of a Madman reissue was derided by fans due to its replacement of the original bass and drum tracks by Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake. Osbourne's 90s touring band (bassist Robert Trujillo and drummer Mike Bordin) replaced Daisley's and Kerslake's original instrumentations. Fans and critics generally felt the move was dishonest and resulted in a far inferior product. In 1986 (see 1986 in music), Daisley and Kerslake had sued Osbourne in court, eventually winning songwriting credits on Diary of a Madman. Osbourne's wife and manager, Sharon, said in a press conference that "because of Daisley and Kerslake's abusive and unjust behaviour, Ozzy wanted to remove them from these recordings. We turned a negative into a positive by adding a fresh sound to the original albums."
The "re-recorded" versions of the album released in 2002 contained no disclaimer stating anything had been changed on the album. The record company eventually began putting a "featuring re-recorded drums and bass parts" sticker on the cover.
