anyone else who cant stand dio?

I so tired of reading dio fanatics comments on music new sites like its so obvious ozzy is the real deal and dio is just a fake f***ing dwarf idiot. his fans a re f***ing stupid as s*** to. its so nice that black rain is coming out soon, so no one will give af*** about dio besides his f***ing loser fans. cant belive another metal singer would s*** talk ozzy so bad, like jesus f***ing christ, he helped create the genre.


You know we are on this site because we all love Ozzy. We obviously would take Ozzy over Dio. But you know opinions are like ass-holes - everyone has one. I personally did not come on here to be brought down by someone who has such a horrible attitude and a shallow mind to lower himself to the same level of those who are childish enough to bad mouth Ozzy. Your attitude of "Dio is a f***ing Drawf Idiot" and "his fans are dumb as s***" is shallow and childish! You give those who know that words are just that and are true Ozzy fans and can respect the work of others at the same time, a bad name. But lets give a cliche that seems to be as childish you are acting. "sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.". All I can really say is Grow Up. You cannot compare the two, it is like apples to oranges.
Ciao, Nette

He's not 4 feet tall. he is around 5'4. Dio walked in a resturant right behind Dio and got an autograph and everything. Said he came up to his chin, we measured...5'4.

I am happy to hear the show was hella good "Cliff em all! I would like to have seen it, but work did not allow me the leisure. As for Machine Head, how were they? And is Queensrÿche on the tour still with heaven & hell? If so that would be a bad ass show to see! I seen Queensrÿche back when they opened for up for Metallica on the Justice for all tour, I was all hopped up on coke, thinking they were brain washing me with their light show & the huge symbol/crest they had behind them on stage, ahhhh the good ole days! How I so miss them sometimes! lmao

As for Dio I have respect for the man, he is a legend in his own right. I look back on his music and grin ear to ear, I loved those albums, it was fun times in those days, fun times indeed!

dont care for dio. if theres no ozzy,its not sabbath.

for me, it was a huge disappointment after i heard dio in black sabbath after ozzy left, the band still played great music even without ozzy, but i just can't stand that dio took all the fame after ozzy left, but on the other hand if he hadn't have left we wouldn't have all the great ozzy songs today

Ok, that sounds more like it, began to wonder here...if he was shorter than me, and I'm 5.2.

Man, I totally agree. My friends and I were at Wal-Mart hanging out.. [sadly, in NEPA that's really the only place to go without cops b****ing about loitering] and my friend Justin shoved Sabbath's "The Dio Years" in my face. I told him to get that trash the f*** outta my light. What a bunch of b/s. In reality, nobody cares about Dio. When people think of Black Sabbath, they think of Ozzy automatically. Period. Bottom line, Black Rain is going to kick so much ass and everyone will continue to ignore Dio.

totally agree with Nette! Well said!

All I got to say is Ozzy's the man & Dio is one ugly mother f****r!!!!!!

You're right. I hate Dio Hes suck a f***ing loser to s*** talk one of the best Heavy metal singers in the f***ing world. Dude I hate mother f***ers like that. They should all die!

~Ozzy Rocks. He will always rock even in his f***ing grave~

i totally agree. Dio sucks. I don't think they should have kept the name Black Sabbath when Dio joined the band. Sabbath without Ozzy is not Sabbath. Dio sounds like a f***ing whiny hair metal pussy. I cannot get into any of the other Sabbath singers. Black Sabbath replacing Ozzy with Dio would be like if The Beatles had replaced John Lennon with someone who sounded like The Beach Boys. To me a band's singer is the band's centerpiece and the band's identity. If the singer is replaced it will no longer sound like the same band. guitarists, drummers, or bassists can be changed, and while it may effect the sound of the band, they can still sound similar enough that most people who liked the band before will continue to like them. A singer is a whole other story. Someone with a voice as unique as Ozzy's cannot be replaced. They should have at least tried to find someone with a similar style, not someone who sounds like a f***ing hair metal singer. If you like Dio, fine, but that's my opinion.

I like Ronnie James Dio.

Not as much as I like Ozzy, but I still like Dio.

I like Dio the band!
I like Black Sabbath with Dio on vocals, not as much as I like OZZY'S Sabbath though.
I also like Rainbow and Elf.

Dio's ok, ..................But OZZY Mutha F_ckin' RULEZ!
O Z Z Y - R U L E Z !

Is this true? If so that sucks. I like Dio's solo music and always have. Same thing with Maiden. I always liked maiden and bruce dick. But when he (bruce Dick) talked s*** about OZZY and pot smokers at OZZFEST 2005 I lost interest and respect. Still love the music and the rest of the band. I liked Paul Diono from the first 2 albums better anywayz.

No easy way out!

Dio has a tremendous voice, I have to give him props for his sheer talent and his longevity. But that kind of operatic, medieval dungeons and dragons themed music has never done anything for me. I want someone to sing to me about what really goes on in life and how you deal from day to day. That's been a great part of Ozzy's appeal since Day One with Sabbath. You feel like he relates to you, you hear it in the emotion in his voice. Talentwise, Dio could sing Ozzy off the stage but Ozzy is the one who can reach in and touch your soul.

Jealousy fuels a lot of the Ozzy-bashing that goes on, it always has.

Without any doubt we are all here because we adore Ozzy (by the way, notwithstanding the fact that he’s not a supermodel too!!!), and certainly we are here to love – NOT to hate. If you want to hate someone (esp. somebody like Dio – a heavy metal idol too), then go to another forum on another site and hate there whoever you want to hate!

Hey, Ozzy's my all time fav but Dio isn't so bad....I hated him for a while cos I didn't want anybody replacing Ozzy with Sabbath but he's a good singer...just not as good as Ozzy...btw, I dated his

Ozzy rules!!

Fix me!!!

Perhaps it's stupid to hate Dio (which I don't do), cause, yeah he's a good artist and all. I just don't like his work and think he's a little dull on the stage.

Always: Expect the worst!

I'm a Ronnie James Dio fan. I like Ozzy a whole lot more... scratch that, I love Ozzy. Now to say Dio sucks just because he said some derogatory things about Ozzy in the past is moronic. Even Ozzy has let by gones be by gones. Plus it's about the music not some personal vendettas. Also, before calling people stupid as s*** and idiots take a look in the mirror. Your spelling and grammer doesn't exactly make you look like king of the geniuses.

I saw Ozzy on Ozzfest last year and saw Dio with Heaven & Hell, and after comparing the two as frontmen, I got to give the advantage to Ozzy. Ozzy can whip any crowd into a frenzy and has more interaction during songs, while Dio can just sing like nobody's business. I prefer Ozzy's style. I just bought Holy Diver and own all of Dio's Sabbath albums, and I like them well enough, but not with the same passion that I do Ozzy's. My philosophy for music is the same for my philosophy of life, you gotta do what works for you.


Dio RULES!!! AND OZZY TOO... shut up "the haters" u're all stupid

I hate DIO's music and his music with Sabbath.. And it isn't an Ozzy vs DIO thing for me either. I just flat out hate DIO's style.. It sounds sooo outdates and Cheesy.... I would say Ozzy has some outdates sounding stuff from teh 80's but he changes with the times and always sounds relevant... I downlaoded some DIO Sabbath because I was thinking about going to the show... I didnt take long to delete those songs off my computer and passed on the show..

Here is something that might interest people. Dio wroe the song King Of Rock N Roll about Ozzy.

OzzySakkRhoads, perhaps you missed the part where Ozzy not only started the feud but did his share of trash talking. And perhaps more recently you have missed the positive things they have said about eachother.

sheesh you guys are like the dio fans, only difference is we love ozzy and talk s*** of dio insteads on blabbermouth, this topic shouldnt be about dio it should be about those retards in blabbermouth commenting
bullcrap like ozzy pls stop or sharons a b**** bla bla bla

To me, Sabbath only existed to 1980. I can't listen to Dio in Black Sabbath. First of all, of course because it's not Ozzy! but, I don't find the music with Dio very intriguing. When I listen to the originalmusic made with Ozzy, but with Dio's voice, it feels wrong. Dio has a great voice, yeah, but I don't like it. I looove Ozzys voice, because it's very special. And he could nail the high tones in his younger days! Sure, Dio can his thing, and I don't mind him, but I won't listen to his music.

Always: Expect the worst!

Dio is a legend. So what if he runs down Ozzy. I couldn't care less who's friends with who. Dio is a true legend of rock and (no offence to Ozzy), he never degraded him self just for a bit of cash doing some crap reality Tv series. Dio is probably more talented than Ozzy aswell. Also you can't knock bands like Rainbow, Deep Purple and yes he also sang for Sabbath while Ozzy was stoned.

Is good to see you guys defending Ozzy so much as I've always done the same thing.....but keep on mind one thing....a long time ago a magazine asked a buck of metal bands what's the best revenge they ever had for anything...there were all kinds of answers like.."I f***ed his woman" or "I beat him up"...but Ozzy gave the best answer when he said his best revenge is "succes"....after al these years he's still kicking ass and he'll always be knows as the best metal singer of all times....btw, I love Maiden and I think Dio is/was a good guys don't have to hate any other singer(unless the sing rap)cos Ozzy will always be the best.

Ozzy rules!!

Dio has an incredible voice, his Sabbath work and first two solo albums were phenomenal. Unfortunately he kind of ran out of material and sort of became poppy. I don't understand how you could hate Dio, it's kind of like loving Metallica and hating Megadeth or loving spaghetti and hating riggatoni. They are basically the same thing. If you want to hate something try LL Cool J.

Hell Ozzy sang for Sabbath when he was stoned. I agree with that bit about The Osbournes. But each singer has things the other doesn't. Dio writes his lyrics and has a more powerful voice that has held up, but Ozzy is a much better showman and entertainer and has discovered many great musicians.

They are certainly different in terms of music and personality but they are both great solo and with Sabbath. And niether one is innocent from this feud of theirs, each has insulted and done their piece about burrying the hatchet.
