    I can understand your viewpoint on this W_t_B. Regarding Ronnie's return to Sabbath in 1992---- to be fair---- I would add though that Tony and Geezer weren't exactly setting the rock world on fire...

    Ozzy should've called it a day as a solo artist the minute he rejoined Black Sabbath. Just saying. :smirk:...:frown:

    From Heaven And Hell:

    Die Young (Still Ronnie's finest moment with Black Sabbath, in my opinion. I would also say it's in my top 3 Sabbath songs of all time. Quintessential indeed!)

    Fair enough, nothing wrong with disagreeing. I'll just add that $haron Osbourne is NOT someone I would call a woman of "principle". Just saying. Thanks for responding. :)

    I strongly disagree Jeff. Perception is everything in the music business. To their credit Tony, Geezer, and Bill saw the bigger picture and accepted this honor graciously. Ozzy doesn't and shouldn't...

    If there's one thing that Ronnie got wrong in the 80s, it was his "vision" for the Dio videos. Frankly, they make me cringe. :doh:

    That said, I guess I'd take the videos over a hologram to keep...

    Agreed led. The planets definitely aligned artistically for both Black Sabbath and Ozzy in 1980-81, in spite of the petty bickering between both camps in the press. :frown:

    No, just the opposite. When I first heard Heaven And Hell in 1986 I remember being amazed by the quality of the music. That said, I certainly enjoyed the first three Dio albums (and the live shows)...

    This is indeed the most interesting story of the Martin years. :)

    If memory serves, the FIRST time I read about this was in Gary Sharpe-Young's (2003) Sabbath biography Never Say Die. Very...

    I prefer The Devil You Know over 13 by a slight margin. Ultimately, the best material on the former is stronger than the best of the latter, to my ears.

    I agree with W_T_B regarding Fear, easily...

    Good stuff. I'll give it 3.5 out of five stars. I played this today for the first time in several years.

    Frankly, I don't like the digipak format at all!! I would've preferred a standard jewel...

    Overall, I believe that Ronnie's most significant work (artistically speaking) was created with Black Sabbath. For the record, he (and Vinny) should've been inducted alongside the original lineup in...

    Personally, I've never understood why the Born Again cover has been so maligned over the years. As far as Steve "Krusher" Joule's artwork goes, is it really any worse than Speak Of The Devil ?

    Problem is, the "official narrative" fails to acknowledge that Iommi and his handlers were in blatant damage-control mode throughout 1986. If you read the Billboard articles from that time, it's as...

    Fairly or unfairly, Seventh Star will mostly be remembered for the (self-inflicted) PR farce that ensued upon the album's release. Solo album first, a minute later it's a Sabbath album, then it's...

    I don't think "abused" is the right word. Did Iommi take Martin for granted? Yes. However, it could be argued that Martin meekly returned after Ronnie left for the second time. Is that not a glutton...

    I can understand your viewpoint Razzle. As a 14-year old in 1984, I preferred Speak Of The Devil. However, since the mid-90s or so, I think time overall has been kinder to Live Evil in comparison.

  22. Flashback: Bark At The Moon tour 4/1/84

    It's hard to believe it's been 35 years since I saw Ozzy Osbourne for the first time, on 4/1/84 in Phoenix at the Coliseum. About 8000 or so showed up in a venue that holds just under 15,000. Tickets...

    Hmmm... let's see:

    Queensryche- 27 (and funny enough, they're not my favorite band. They just tour so much!) :laugh:

    KISS- 21

    Rush- 16

    Black Sabbath- 11

    Not. Frankly, they have a lot more talent than that. On the other hand, I've never cared for the term "heavy metal" either. I prefer to call it hard rock.

    Hopefully the original QUARTET (read: the REAL Black Sabbath) will be honored at the ceremony, not the "trio" incarnation of the band. :doh:...:mad:
