Thread: frontman poll

  1. #1

    Default frontman poll

    Okay I know that there is already a poll about the favorite frontman of black sabbath, but I have taken it a bit further and have added Ray and instead of saying other eras I am putting Glenn Hughes and Ian Gillan.

    Still Tony Martin. Ozzy has great charisma but if you listen to Martin-era live boots, he has a better live voice than perhaps ANY rock singer I've ever heard. He hits notes most other singers wouldn't even attempt.

    I'm surprised no one has said Dio yet.

    Ronnie JAMES Dio. But who is this Tomy Martin? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    And where are Dave Walker, Dave Donato and Rob Halford?

    Easily Ozzy Osbourne. I like Ronnie James Dio too, but Ozzy's monotome "chanting" singing voice just suits Sabbath better in my opinion. Also, it's 7 magnificent studio albums against 2 and one not so good...

    Tony Martin just bores me to tears (I have never heard anything as uninspired and dry vocally as Cross Purposes) and overall I just don't like the albums which he sang on.

    Gillan, Gillen, and Hughes weren't really in the band long enough to really make a mark for me.

    Ozzy by far, but with the time limit 1970 - 1978.

    From 1979 up to this day, it's a tie between Dio and Martin. The others (incl Ozzy nowadays) aren't even close.

    Ozzy, of course, he is a frontman. I saw Tony live here in argentina, he is a great singer but he doesn´t move on stage! It is not a critic, it´s just a fact! Howewer, Tony Martin is my second favourite singer from Sabbath.

    Well.. I would like to say Ozzy, but Dio is these days a lot more better performer. I've not seen Ozzy live on the 70's, but those days it must have been great to see him live. I was on Dio's gig and Black Sabbath gig last year. Both gave me great vibes, but Ozzy is what he is these days and Dio goes strong still. Others i've never seen live, other than on video.

    I remember back in the days of yore when the masses chanted "Tony, Tony, Tony!" and they were yelling for Iommi.

    I voted Ozzy.

    It was tough, trying to decide between Tony and Dio, but in the end I went with Tony, if not just for the fact that theres a lot larger catalogue with him, alot more great songs 'caz he was with them for longer, fronting them 9 years...really the Tony Martin era was such a great time for black sabbath! But dio would have been my second choice. Then Ian my third, and after that I don't know, ozzy probably last.

    Well i had to juggle between Dio & Tony Martin, then i had to go with Tony Martin because he has done some wonderful stuff in Headless Cross & Cross Purposes, also he has done more albums than Dio. But if you ask me who is the greatest Heavy Metal vocalist of all time, definitely i would go for DIO. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] DIO rulez man!!!.....

    When it comes to frontmen, Ozzy is no.2 after Freddie Mercury.
