The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site | The official Ozzy Osbourne site

I would say, and imagine Ozzy would agree somewhat, that Ozzy's success is from the people that surround him, as is the case with others that surrounded themselves with Ozzy. There is a reason Ozzy's first solo stint in the 70s failed, success didn't materialize. Thats not to say Ozzy isn't talented. His ability to create the melodies he does over the bone crushing heaviness of Tony, Randy, Jake, and Zakk is dumbfounding. $haron has also played a MAJOR part in Ozzy's success.

If I were you I'd get out Heaven And Hell & The Mob Rules and give 'em a spin.

Tony Iommi = God, his arch angels are Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Walker, Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan, Dave Donato, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen, Tony Martin, and Bill Ward (bassically everyone who sang on a song labeled Black Sabbath)
