Ok Ozzy, the level of practice is high on the past ....
Unless you become an Elvis of Rock and Roll, or a "classic rock" star, is there hope that you're going to turn these REALLY REALLY TALENTED MEN out in the studio to write some NEW STUFF THAT YOU WILL TOUR TO LIKE ALL OTHER CONTEMPORARY BANDS? None of this "I am playing 1 song off the album and the rest the past" stuff. It's sweet for your lifelong fans but it really isn't what everyone wants to see!
Millions of us want to continue to consider Ozzy a part of our CURRENT music landscape. We thought that was the case with Scream, but you only played one freaking song from the album on your tour. WHATTUP WITH THAT OZZY?
PLEASE. I think these guys are ready to write some classic $h!t Ozzy. The love is in their hearts and their eyes. As a fan, you can feel it BIG TIME. They are doing SUCH honor to everything. NOW DO HONOR TO THEM! LET THEM WRITE AND TOUR (since this is where they are putting their passion and music life) WITH NEW STUFF!
Imagine if you were in their shoes. That passion to create and be a part of something was in YOUR heart. When stifled, it didn't feel so hot. It led to alot of friction within Sabbath. I know they are happy doing what they do, but I think they'll be ECSTATIC to know that they wrote AND PLAYED LIVE A WHOLE NEW SET OF SONGS WITH OZZY FREAKING OSBOURNE.
PLEASE do this. For them! For your fans! And for yourself! PLEASE don't get stuck in the past. The unknown of the future, performing as if it WERE the first gig you've ever played, together AS A BAND WITH YOUR BAND, priceless! Take a risk Ozzy! DO IT!!!!
These guys CAN'T let you down. I really honestly can't think of anything more excellent IN ALL WAYS then each of these guys. THEY ARE BRILLIANT! PLEASE LET THEM SHINE WITH THE DIAMOND, YOU, IN THE MIDDLE!!!!
