    Default Crazy thought

    I love all Sabbath (Ozzy, Dio, Gillan, Hughes, and Martin). The other day while driving down the road AC/DC started playing on the radio and I had this crazy idea that Brian Johnson could do a really good job of performing Ozzy songs.

    That would've been weird. Could work, though...

    Edit: It MIGHT work was what i should've said. Probably wouldn't...

    I respectfully disagree. I just don't see it...

    Pretty dark no? I don't care if you don't like the band, but don't make assumptions.

    Anyway, I'm a fan of both bands but I really don't think that Brian could fit in with Black Sabbath.

    To be a little more specific, I was talking about his voice. I think he would do a pretty decent job singing "Ozzy only" songs. I don't think he could pull off doing anything from Dio, Gillan, or Martin. Just thinking of different singers that have that Ozzy style of voice.

    Brain Johnson is a great singer without a doubt, but he doesn't have that dark effect within his voice range to sing those certain Sabbath songs that require it.

    Are we forgetting "What's Next to the Moon" "Razor's Edge" and some others? Razor's Edge is practically heavy metal. What's Next to the Moon is a pretty dark song in and of itself.

    The only person that I feel could do the Ozzy era justice is Billy Corigan. Listen to the track Black Oblivian on the Iommi solo CD for reference. IMO, that song sounds like a Black Sabbath song, and I feel he could pull off the old Ozzy songs, especailly the tracks where Ozzy voice is in the higher range.

    I'm aware. He commented on their "inability" to make dark music, not Brain's "inability" to sing dark music.
