    The only "mockery" in question was a playful jest in which I quoted your words, and I even put a smiley to underscore the fact that it was a joke, and not snarkiness. (see post "yesterday 05:32 PM")...

    Iron-Man, that whole period is in contention. Gruber claims to have written "Die Young." Nicholls and Dio are at odds over who wrote "Heaven and Hell" (and there are some who say Ozzy sang on an...

    It's admittedly difficult, and perhaps inappropriate, to take a cut-and-dry stance. One size does not fit all. Music is art first and foremost. It features business aspects, of course, but it's not a...

    Was going to respond to Damian, but luckily KHH, Mythology, J Hillenburg, and Wicked Cricket have gone a long way towards that end in their comments. Thank you, gentlemen. :P

    Ted, great to hear you enjoy "Air Dance," but I'm always puzzled when someone says that only "Never Say Die," and "Johnny Blade" sound like Sabbath songs, partly because both are rather unique...

    I wish I could say the same. Admittedly what you think might come to pass (and there's every reason to think it could) is the very thing I dread.

    That's pretty cool. Nowadays, there'd be issues over copyrights and all that.

    You raise good points (as you often do), DiosSword. I'm admittedly ambivalent about the term, and have swung both ways in regards to it. The big problem I have with it is how most people appear to...

    LOL, I guess I have a hair-trigger, what can I say? It only sounds like it's on 11, though. (And I see yours isn't so far behind mine! :P)

    Things like "cornerstone of HM" and "rock legends" matter very little to me. That's all the kinds of terminology spouted by journalists and their ilk, along with those trying to prop up the metal...

    I think a lot less people are down on this album then we assume. IMO, there's just a very vocal faction who don't like it. When I've looked at all the positive remarks the songs from this album have...

    Kamikazetom, two points:

    a) I never said the tour was a planned fact. I said a farewell tour is what they told Ozzy they were going to do, and is what he believed until he was thrown out. If you...

    None taken. Ozzy's no saint, but neither is anyone else. And the fact remains that a lot of seemingly conflicting things have been said about the breakup that haven't yet been pieced together. That...

    That's a unique perspective! I like its egalitarian spirit, which is far more suitable to my ears than the Iommi=Sabbath POV, or even my own "purist" POV (that none of it's Sabbath unless all four...

    From Ozzy: In His Own Words, this is a quote from 1980: "Anyway we decided to pack it in – the whole band. We were going to do a farewell tour and that would be the end of it. The band would split up...

    Yeah, that's pretty sweet! Good to hear the fans singing along (though one of them's very off-key)!

    No, it's the same name. The band is different because a rock band refers to the individual musicians working in tandem as a specific unit. The harmonization of those specific musicians creates the...

    Damien, I resent your assertion that, a) I'm blind to what Sharon's capable of, b) that I'm pro-Ozzy right or wrong, c) that I haven't gotten my hands dirty.

    I look forward to reading the article,...

    To get a little perspective on this issue, Ozzy's said a LOT of things over the years that he no longer feels. I've read interviews where Ozzy disparages the first album, the songs "Paranoid" and...

    Well, some of us are fans here. ;) Don't mind my rolling eyes. It's not personal to you; just a reaction to the general anti-Ozzy tone on these boards. I'll explain below.

    He's been changing his set-list show-by-show. Did you guys not see the list of songs he had his band rehearse? It's on a thread here somewhere, and it's loaded with Sabbath songs. But...

    You'd be surprised. Everyone I've gotten to know over the years who listens to Sabbath loves NSD. It wasn't until I saw read comments on metal forums (as well as this one) that I found there was a...
