Van Halen didn't change their name. They were Van Halen with Roth, Hagar, and the new guy. Should KISS have changed their name when Criss and Frehley left? Of Maiden when Dianno left? or Deep Purple when John Lord left? When about Guns N Roses when Slash and rest of the entire band left?

If it had been some other way around and Geezer or Tony had a drug problem and was holding the band back I'm sure Ozzy would have kept on playing under Sabbath. IMO Tony is the most musically talented member of the origional four, followed by Bill, then Geezer. Ozzy is not very musically talented, yet he somehow pulls these wonderful melodies out of thin air and weaves them onto heavy riffs. No other guitarist can emmulate Tony and although Ozzy is likewise unimmitateable there are people who can do his job just aswell.

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)
