    So much this!

    Ozzy might be crazy, talentless, poor writer and singer, a crook, a puppet and the Lars Ulrich of heavy metal singers, but he's still fucking Ozzy. Even if you don't like his singing, you can't take him out of the equation. Like, Sabbath isn't Sabbath without him (and as much as I love Dio and the Sabbath records are better with him, etc. etc. etc. the Dio years are a total different thing for me than the Ozzy years).

    This is where I am, too.

    He's sort of the George Clinton of metal. George was a crap singer and couldn't play an instrument, but he somehow created an environment where lots of great musical things happened in the '70s. Ozzy functioned like that after he left Sabbath. Rhoads/Daisley/Kerslake didn't need him in order to write great music, nor didn't Jake E. Lee and Daisley a few years later, but it might have been very different with an involved singer, and maybe that combo never gets together without him.

    That's a good way of looking at it, considering where Sabbath went with Dio. I absolutely love the Dio era, but it's obvious that RJD was extremely involved in the songwriting process. Then, look at how Dio essentially dominated the songwriting in his solo career. I can't think of a greater contrast in solo output than Ozzy and Dio.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.
