Do you think Dio can sing the Tony Martin Sabbath songs?

    Only Ozzy can sing that song, Gillan would be second in line.

    I do enjoy Ronnie's rendition of N.I.B.

      I saw them on the 1994 Cross Purposes tour. He sounded great on everything he sang, even though he had a cold that night.

      However, there were no Hughes or Gillan songs that night - just himself, Ozzy and Dio, though they didn't even do "Heaven And Hell."

      Even the songs he sang on were limited...just stuff from Cross Purposes and the title track from Headless Cross, and even that was shortened, coming out of Bobby Rondinelli's drum solo. Nothing from The Eternal Idol or Tyr. That bummed me.
      He is not here. He has risen!

        That's when the era of "Disposable Sabbath" began. There was just no way to measure the success of a song without it having charted anywhere.

        You'd actually have to ask or listen to fans, and I think that was too tall an order back then...probably trying to avoid endless "Where's Ozzy?" questions or when is the reunion. Must get tiring, so you start ducking out.

          I saw them in Kalamazoo. I live in Marysville.

          I know they made at least one convert that night. The guy sitting next to my friend and I said, "I don't know who the hell this singer is, but he's damned good!"

          Living in the USA, where Sabbath=Ozzy's backing band, all they would have to do is show up, play "Paranoid," "War Pigs" and "Iron Man" and that would be enough for most audiences.

            If Tony ever comes around with Tony Martin and does some shows, I'm going to see them.

                Too bad Ronnie's ego didn't allow him to perform Martin songs when he returned to Sabbath, I'm sure his take on them would've been interesting and sound better than when he performed the Ozzy songs.

                  No hyperbole whatsoever when I say, "Hell yes, Dio could've sung the Martin songs better than Martin himself!" No disrespect intended to the Martin fans here! They are cut from a similar cloth, stylistically speaking but I think what sets them apart was Dio's way of engaging the listener and really selling the song. Tony was no doubt a great singer but I just feel that Dio was on an entirely different level.

                    Did Ozzy perform them? Or any song he didn't sing on record? Ego indeed.

                      Yeah egos suck, would’ve loved to hear Ozzy sing Children of the Sea.

                        Ozzy would have struggled mightily with that tune, tbh (as with most Dio stuff, which is from a singing standpoint on a whole another level techincally, although Ozzy had a respectable range back then). Dio's timbre masks it, but the song has spme ridonkilously high notes for a male singer sung in the chest register. Even if they downtuned to C#, it wouldn't fit Ozzy due to other stylistic and technical aspects such as vibrato, legato, power and other areas.
