Do you consider Ozzy Osbourne a solo artist or consi...
Looking for a fresh answer on this question....
I am having a discussion on another message board about updating artists linked to other artists on the following web site,
and there are no rules that state that members of Ozzy Osbourne, the band, can not be linked to Ozzy Osbourne himself, because he is one person.
They don't consider Ozzy Osbourne a group or band but only a solo artist. But.. Doesn't Ozzy Osbourne represent more than just OZZY? What about the band members? Does it sound out of context to say... HEY I can't wait to see Ozzy Osbourne in concert because ZAKK ROCKS! Implying that ZAKK is part of the "BAND" or the name Ozzy Osbourne, just like Black Label Society is a band name. Black Label Society a person's name, but the title of the band, but is automatically known this way. Ozzy Osbourne however is known as a solo artist, and it is just assumed that everyone who is a fan already knows that ZAKK is in the band, represented by the name Ozzy Osborune.
My argument is that all members that are and have been in Ozzy Osbourne should be linked to Ozzy Osbourne. But certain individuals disagree because they strongly argree that Ozzy should not have anyone linked because his name is only a solo artist name, which again I think is bulls***. Why not link everyong associated? To get around this, they have suggested to create another Ozzy Osbourne link or Ozzy Osbourne (2), so that anyone associated with him can be associated that way. There are no rules that state that this is by any means the way to do it and it is just assumed by others that this is how it should be done, but again I disagree.
Ok, so just to go over this one more time....
Isn't it true that Randy Rhodes was in the Ozzy Osbourne band or does that not sound right? Even though Ozzy Osbourne is consider one person, he still has band members that record music for him? So shouldn't the members of Ozzy Osbourne be considered a part of the name Ozzy Osbourne?
If someone was to ask you what band's Randy Rhodes recorded with, how would you answer?
