You really fucked up now dude. Tuck your fucking shirt in, class is in session.
Talent-challenged? That's laughable. He "writes" (more like "comes up with") melodies yet doesn't even have a cursory understanding of music theory. Just the sound of his voice absolutely SCREAMS metal. He could sing Bah Bah Blacksheep and it would sound heavy.
Giving all of Sabbath's success to Iommi is fucking retarded too. Geezer and Bill Ward were just as important as Iommi and Ozzy. A few of the main riffs were originally bass riffs that Iommi just played as power chords. The song Black Sabbath is a prime example of that.
Fact is, Sabbath was a unit. There is a reason Heaven and Hell sounded so much different.
Yes, Ozzy got fired, twice. So did Bill Ward. Big fucking deal.
Right. He "wallowed in pity" for what, a year until Blizzard of Ozz was released? Yet again, you attribute 100% of his success solely to the lead guitarist. Randy was great, yeah, but was he as great with Quiet Riot? No. Ozzy must have contributed something then, right?
Ozzy's ability and his wife's management have a lot more to do with his success than any of the players in HIS band. Otherwise how is he still enduring now that he's on his 5th guitarist, 5th bassist, and 7th drummer? How did he not collapse when Iommi kicked him out, or when Randy died, or when Jake E. Lee left, etc?
Instead of saying "the guitarists made Ozzy", doesn't it make more sense to say "Ozzy made his guitarists"?
Ozzy clearly doesn't give a fuck what anyone thinks and never has. He's 63 years old, has done more drugs, drank more booze, and rocked harder than most people could ever dream. You can call it selling out, he'll call it "my wife's new Bentley in half a day's work", only it will sound like "Mmmdfdadfuckinell bloodyaadfkdlsdkfn bieverdsafokfj bestbuybddaekadd" when he says it. Besides, he's making a commercial with the fucking kid, not an album. People need to calm down with all of this "sellout" bullshit. He's endorsing Best Buy, not Justin Bieber.
