  • Gillan singing Ozzy/Dio: live favorites

    There was a thread like this a while back for which Ozzy songs people preferred to hear, as they were sung by Dio. This is a similar thread.

    Personally, I prefer Gillan singing "Rock N' Roll Doctor", "Black Sabbath", and "Heaven And Hell". I know, this might sound outrageous, but Gillans voice combined with his eerie screams really add a lot to the music. Heaven and Hell especially. Gotta love those high-pitched screams during the chorus:

    "...its HEAAAAVEN AND HEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLL!!!"

    Most of them, Supernaut was wild with Gillan. His take on Black Sabbath has yet to be bettered IMHO.

      Is it possible to get some Gillan's live stuff with Sabbath on internet? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif[/img]

          Gillan is just the best performer of "Rock'N'Roll Doctor" IMO, and I think he did a great job on every Ozzy era songs (especially "Black Sabbath"). But I really dislike the way he did the Dio era material. He didn't manage to make it sound right (his renditions of "Neon Knights" were just plain awful).

          I think I remember an interview with Gillan where he said he had difficulties with the Dio material and felt more confortable with the Ozzy material. And he was explaining that by saying that he and Ozzy were more rough rock'n'roll singers while Dio had a more operatic quality in his voice, which also explained why Dio never managed to make some the Ozzy songs sound right.

            Fair comments. But I actualy like his takes on Neon and H&H. He did not have that 'operatic' alsmost spoken effect that Dio had but his versions sounded good to me.

              I love Gillan's version of Heaven And Hell.

                  Yeah I agree. Ian added a really cool evil quality to Black Sabbaths songs.

                    Yes, I saw Gillan w/Sabbath at Met Center in Bloomington, Minnesota on 11/20/83 and I do remember the killer versions of Supernaut and
                    Rock N Roll Doctor. I thought they were great versions. I never
                    got to hear Gillan on Neon Knights but I would like to. Gillan's
                    versions of Black Sabbath is probably my favorite take on that
                    song.

                      I wonder what Gillan was like on Neon Knights? I've heard they only played NK on the US leg of the tour, and I never got a bootleg of that.
