  1. A line up I would have dearly loved to see in the Sabs would be Tony, Geezer, Tony Martin, Cozy, and Geoff Nicholls, and I wish to god that Cozy had been on Cross Purposes and would have been fine if he’d taken Vinny’s place in every Dio reunion. It’s a pity that Cozy and Dio did not get along. What WAS Cozy doing for most of ’94 anyway? He is one of my favorite drummer’s ever.

  2. Steve Armourae says

    Powerful drummer. Regarded as a power style drummer, Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac thought his playing was too loud for his Splinter Band. True Cozy was a hard rock and metal drummer, Peter’s fault for hiring him into a blues band
