Zakk over rated? Or not?

Ok first thing first, I have to say this despite the fact that I will probably risk being tarred & feathered & run out of the country, but I just have to throw these thoughts out there and see what sticks to the wall. I will start by saying that Zakk is definitely one of the better guitarists that Ozzy has managed to have since Randy Rhoads, but I never really liked him all that much, maybe it was him looking like a Randy Rhoads clone that stuck in my craw. Whatever the case, I always thought he was just all right, up until he started his solo thing, then I started to kind of warm up to him. He changed his look dramatically, his attitude was more lean & mean, and he basically grew a persona all his own. I still even with his early solo s*** with BLS thought it was just ok at best, then I heard some stuff off of mafia & I was actually impressed. I think he finally found his nitch so to speak, and I have to say it was then that I seen him in a totally different light. The thing with Zakk that always kind of turned me off personally was that he played kind of like Eddie Van Halen, more what I call a flash guitarist. I have wrote it off as me just being more into the guys that play all those scales with blistering accuracy & speed, like Randy, or Joe Holmes.

Now I have come to like Zakk over time, but it is mostly because of his loyalty to Ozzy, & that he finally gave up that glam look he had goin on, it was also then that he began to look like he had an actual penis instead of a mangina. I mean good lord has that boy been takin the steroids or what. Here a while back I was strolling down memory lane & I seen a pic of Zakk when he first hooked up with Ozzy, he looked like a fetus wrapped in spandex and women’s makeup. It was horrifying s*** to say the least, but now you look at him and he looks like a lumberjack or some s***, sporting a chain on his belt the size of a log chain lmao. I am surprised he manages to keep his pants up wearing that thing. Anyway, these days I enjoy Zakk, especially if he doesn’t talk, I have to say he sounds kind of goofy with all the repetitive sayings that consist of mostly, dude, and ah dude, and ah bro, and bro, you’re my bro, bro. As well as calling Ozzy the boss man, ah ya boss, & whatever you says boss, ah ya boss, duh boss. I apologize if I seem harsh. but I am sure by now you all get my point. I personally would rather listen to Ozzy stutter for ten years solid as to have to listen to a single Zakk Wylde interview, he should maybe rethink doing them in the future, just my own personal advice for the Zakk man.

Well I just want to say again for the record I like Zakk, but some of you people take it to a whole other level, & I apologize if I may have offended anyone, but I just don’t get the hysteria when it comes to Zakk. For me myself & I, I would have much rather preferred hearing a studio album with Joe Holmes on guitar, but that’s just me.

Peace Scapegoat..........

Sorry Dumb ass, but Eddie Van Halen never ever ever had bone crushing riffs and screams and bass lines and balls and guts like Zakk Wylde. Listen to Zakk and Eddie turned way up loud with lot's of bass and send your dumb ass blog again. No contest-tap out.

anyone who can play the guitar with his teeth is alright by me

of all the things I've lost in life, I miss my mind teh most -Ozzy- Hey! Check out my OzzFest Photos http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewPicture&friendID=20837965&albumId=892934

Here this response is meant exclusively for you ya dumb ass, & you know who you are. My only relation to Zakk & Eddie Van Halen being alike somehow is that they both are show boat guitarist. That’s it! End of comparison!

Now as for Zakk being so great for Ozzy, I say bull f***in s***! There was an Ozzy long, long before Zakk f***in Wylde, & there can be an OZZY long, long after him! Zakk Wylde is not the only guitarist in the world; just think about how Zakk got his break after all, maybe Ozzy should look for another guitarist looking for a chance in the industry, via giving himself a breath of fresh f***in air creatively!

As for bone crushing riffs, you got to be kidding me, lmfao!

Lamb of Gods guitarist, & bass player deliver more bone-crushing riffs just in the opening of one of their songs, as compared to an entire song from your precious Zakk Wylde & his lame ass poser biker club BLS! As for cranking up the bass and blaring something, maybe you should try that with some Crowbar, now thats bone crushing!

Zakk is caught in a rut my friend with his over produced, radio friendly, candy-coated bulls*** he has been spanking out here the last few years. My only question is what f***in bands have you been listening to lately? And I am almost convinced that BLS is only one chromosome away from being a weak ass glam band. So please just shut the f*** up fan boy!

Its ass munches like you that are responsible for the stagnant, & the inert shape the metal scene is currently in. I bet a million bucks fan boy that you would buy or support anything these guys throw out. I bet my very soul that you’re the kind of guy that still buys and listens to f***in Metallica like they are the s*** this very day, Am I close poser boy? I bet you would even suck their dicks right off fan boy! To me I can only conclude that you’re just another sell out fan boy, a drone. So do all us real metal hardcore fans a favor, go post your weak as views on the nearest Motley Crue web forum! Ya f*** stick poser!

LMAO! Scapegoat

Now hows that for emotion peeps, Hahahahahaaaaaa!

well, you just cant compare zakk to jake, or rhandy to iommi....they are all completely different. no single one is "better". Iommi was the riffmeister, rhoads had this classical/metal thing. jake..he was really just a blues guy...but he was good. zakk has this..southern fried take no prisoners attitude.
i didnt care for zakk much when i first heard him (no rest for the wicked) but he grew on me. he fits the modern day ozzy great.
he is one of the better guitarists from this generation...
id a like to heard zakk and dimebag jam..that wouldve been smokin.

I dont think Zakk is over rated at all. The man is awesome. I was really young when Ozzy was with the other guitar players and haven't seen them live. Zakk is a awesome person and a devoted family man, not just to his wife and kids but to Ozzy as well. I have met him and everytime he is just as nice and gracious to all. I know his personality is over bearing at times but thats Zakk. And I happen to love to see him f*** around. He's just a fun guy that likes to have a good time. I love all Ozzy's music and hope they are together for a long , long time. Peace.

strength, determination, merciless, forever

f***ing right on SG. You make me lmfao almost everytime I read one of your posts. This particular one was totally hilarious. f*** stick poser. That just made my day. Lay it down.

Roll on...............Joanie

I heard that Zakk & Darrell played together a few times on stage when Pantera was opening for Ozzy at Ozzfest back in the day. Yes I agree that would have been some cool ass s*** to have seen! Yup!

I don't want people to get the wrong idea about Zakk & me; I like Zakk a whole bunch. It’s just at this point & time I think maybe Zakk an Ozz should maybe take a long break from each other. After all Zakk has established his own fan base with BLS, its not like he needs to cling to Ozzy's coat tales any more. An as for Ozzy I think it would be great to see him branch out on his own and try something new. I realize Ozzy is getting older, but some people talk about him like he is to f***in senile, or stupid to write anything substantial, or good lyrically on his own! “BULL s***!”

Yes Ozzy has had help with his music for many years, with a multitude of fine ass musicians, but to say Ozzy isn't capable of doing a project without Zakk Wylde behind him, well I just don't believe that Ozzy is that inept & not capable of reaching far greater heights than he has managed to do with Zakk Wylde in the band, remember it is the “OZZY OSBOURNE BAND”. Not Zakk Wylde’s band…. Just a thought????

Peace

<cite>"Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus."</cite> - <strong>Ozzy Osbourne</strong>

You;ve got to understand that OZZY has always had some kick ass player on guitar. If you are an artist on guitar and can play with someone like OZZY and get the notiriaty and still KICK ASS with the BLACK LABEL OF SOCIETY you've got the best of both worlds. Bottom line ZAKK kicks major ass. I seen him up close at the Jimmy Kimmel show on the day that Black Rain came out. He tore it up. I'm not a ZAKK fan but, he's grown on me. Not only that but who can try to fill the shoes. In my expirience and knowing that OZZY will remain,he's the one that has been shreading it up with the ICON. For years and who's next. TRY AND FILL THOSE BOOTS and how do you like them apples. RANDY LIVES, OZZY RULES and ZAKK KICKS ASS!!!!!!!!!!!

whoa sg r u smart or what i LOVE MetallicA. and you sure know alot about sucking guys off so we'll leave that your job. and i have also seen some of your other post and think your 95% right. the other 5 about ZAKK and BLS i think your wrong about.

No outlaw I didn’t give up on Metallica just over one song, obviously? It was the fact that the black album was a lame ass follow up to Justice, & that the black album was commercial out the ass, & that they listened to a moron like Bob Rock on how they should play, & what they should sound like.

Instead of following their hearts like they did in years past, & keeping the flame alive out of respect for cliff, they went and sold out. The most I will say is that the black album had some cool guitar riffs/hooks, but it was so f***in repetitive, & the lyrics were so childish that I personally couldn’t stomach it. For me what made Metallica so great was that like Sabbath they also had multiple riffs, & changes throughout a song. In other words it didn’t get boring, I am sorry but there is no f***in comparison to a song like Damage Inc. & Enter Sandman, or at least I don’t make the connection, do you?

I will tell you now bro I was a Metallica fan when nobody really knew who they were; I was told I was an idiot, crazy for liking their music. Those guys were my heroes for the longest time, and then because of an unforeseen tragedy, along with some dip s*** named Bob Rock getting his hooks in them, they went and crumbled like a bunch of little schoolgirls.

That’s when the music died for me, not with Cliff dieing exactly, but when James & Lars gave up total creative control, that’s when it ceased to be any fun for me anymore. As for you if you can take pride somehow in supporting that crap they want to pass off as great metal, well you go right ahead, it really is irrelevant to me these days. Metallica died for me a long, long time ago, and yes I mourned over it in the beginning, but as any tragedy dealt out in life, time heals all wounds.

As for this band you mentioned Amon Amarth, I had never heard of them until your initial post about them. I went and took a listen, its not to bad bro, kind of reminds me of the old days with Death, & Dark Angel, I will go and check em out a little closer, thanks for the tip, always up for suggestions about new and upcoming bands. Always!

Peace dude!

My sentiments exactly. I was really in to Ozzy when Jake E. Lee was his side kick. Yeah I know the glam boy look. They were good together though. They had good chemistry. Plus I thought he was not so bad looking. Hey I was a youngin. No offense taken here about anything you have said, on the other hand this douche bag who calls himself Anonymous he is pain in my ass.

Peace Back At You..........Joanie

Thanks, & my many pardons, I tend to get emotional when it comes to my hard rock music. Call it a flaw, whatever, I just cant stand people that can take a whiff of pure-O-Dee s*** & come up calling it roses. It just has become frustrating, & I am saddened by what passes for hardcore these days, maybe as I have said in the past I am a dying breed.

I just keep promise in the fact that like in the early 80's, we had a movement so to speak, & like back then we will have a resurgence of great f***in music like we had in the 90's.

I am trying so hard to keep a positive outlook on it all, but for me growing up with all that pop crap in the 80's like Duran, Duran, & the Thompson twins, gag, icky, yuck!

That eventually once again the trend will die, & we will once again have a great amount of music to enjoy because of the backlash at commercial music being shoved down our throats. I am a individual that cant go back but only in a nostalgia sense, once the bar has been raised & a new level of expectations has been shown, I don’t expect us to go backwards but only forwards, to evolve, to pioneer! I say why settle for anything less from an artist, or musician. After all it is we fans that allow them the storybook fairy tale life style they get to live out each day. But that’s just how I roll I guess! Lol

Peace!

I agree with SG, although Zakk and Ozzy have made some killer music together it wouldn't hurt eachother to take a break. But Ozzy seems confortable with Zakk and the way he does things. Remember when this site advertized a new guitarist? Obviously Ozzy didn't like what he heard as much as Zakk. I don't really care who Ozzy has playing those riffs but IMO he needs a better bass player. Blasko is great but not for Ozzy's style. He needs to work with Daisley again. If that doesn't happen I'd love another Ozzmosis(i.e. Geezer on bass) thought its nothing next to his previous albums. Or perhaps Geoff Nichols, who was origionally brought into Sabbath to replace Geezer in 1980. He is the one who came up with the bassline to H&H, and he worked for 21 years by Tony's side.

Better yet would be for him to get his f***ing ass into the studio with Sabbath ;)

--
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)

I basically just wanted to throw these random thoughts of mine out there & see what stuck & what didn't. As far as Zakk being a great Daddy & a great husband, well that’s really sweet an all, but I really don't give a f*#%kin hoot, I am not buying his biography, I am buying the mans music. So with that said it is totally irrelevant if I like any artist on a personal level, I mean it helps, it is a bonus, but it isn’t necessary. I don't personally have to have that quality in an individual in order to admire that particular artists work, the music is what always sells it for me, but that’s just how I roll I presume.

For example Maynard from Tool strikes me as an egotistical a**hole, but I love his music, the same goes for someone’s alternate life style, for example Freddie Mercury was openly gay, bisexual. It had absolutely no bearing on whether I bought his music or not. So Mr. Zakk Wylde can be the greatest human being on earth, but if he doesn’t kick me in the nuts with his music, well then I just got to skip the whole experience, again that’s just how I roll, lol...

I will sum it up here, for me Wylde is nothing but a giant hambone these days, & that is what turns me off I guess, as well as the fact that I don’t think he always brings out the best in Ozzy. Its my humble opinion that Ozzy should maybe sever his working with Zakk ever again, or at least take a long, long break from Wylde. Ozzy maybe in doing so may surprise all you Zakk fans & rip your throats all out next time around, I can at least hope for as much cant I?

I feel Black Rain is a worse effort from Ozzy than his no more tears release, but again to each his own I say. If this latest material really does it for you then more power to ya all. Just for me I want the Ozzy I heard when we got Ozzmosis, as far as I am concerned that’s the last time I remember there being any real chemistry between Wylde & Osbourne. So with that for a final thought, I am going to roll my ass on outta here!

Peace

Outlaw, now what a come back! Well before I laugh at you just yet, are we talking the whole music catalog of Metallica, or please for the love of God tell me you have not bought anything past justice, please at least give me that, or you leave me no choice but to call you a drone, a fan boy. Please tell me you love only old Metallica with Cliff, then maybe I can forgive you & be your friend, but only then I suspect lol.....

Oh & you may want to brush up on your spelling and grammar, lay way off the that there glue lacker head! Just a tip round mouth! In your mouth if I had to suspect????

<cite>"Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus."</cite> - <strong>Ozzy Osbourne</strong>

I agree with you 100% bro, Daisley was awesome with Ozz, & I couldn't agree more that if Daisley cant make the gig that the next best choice would be Geezer. Its a damn shame Daisley lost his mind & went an tried to sue Osbourne, not to smart!

Bass is a big, big factor in my over all like, or dislike for a band. Maybe because I myself am a bass player, so that fact may make me a little prejudice I suspect. I have always enjoyed heavy, heavy music, I am the kind of guy that wants to feel it squeeze his rib cage together pushing all the air from his lungs kinda heavy! lol

And yes Ozzy needs to s*** or get the f*** of the pot so to speak when it comes to this supposed sabbath reunion! Yup!

You know I have to agree with a lot of what you say goat. I feel that RR was Ozzy's best lead. Zack is wonderful and Lord we know he is fricken fast. I am sure that a lot will agree that the first albums in the early 80's were the best. s*** that is 3/4 of the setlist at all of his shows LOL...... Ozzy and Randy were musical solemates and they were so damn good together. Wasn't it Randy that was playing the guitar on "So Tired"? I am gonng fetch the lyrics to that unless someone beats me ;)... goat did you check your mail????

Peace all!

Thanks rose, ah princess, ah whatever it is this week lol! I appreciate that! I am not really trying to beat Zakk to death, despite allot of my feelings I house about the guy, I cant help but kind of like him, & yes he has skill, he is talented that is not a factor, its whether he is giving out his full potential, because if he is? Well I am not really blown away by it, in fact there are a lot of other bands that deliver far superior to what Zakk is, so that’s my thoughts on it all, some fans, or better yet drones may disagree. To each his own I say!

To those who fire back at me with hate or hostility, I would appreciate it if you just don’t beat me down because I have the nerve to actually speak my mind in here, I am well within my rights to voice my opinions, & views.

After all this is why we are all here, forums are made for these sort of rebuttals, am I correct peeps?

As for you e-mailing me Princess Rose lol, I checked my e-mail & have no new mail. Are you sure you have it right? Let me know ok? And no Randy was already gone when Ozzy did so tired, it would have been Jake E. Lee, Jake didn't do so bad capturing some of that Randy & Ozzy chemistry huh?

<cite>"Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus."</cite> - <strong>Ozzy Osbourne</strong>

So you basically reinforce my statement outlaw, you will buy s*** even when if fails by comparison to what a band has once delivered. Metallica almost made me tear the f*** up dude with that enter sandman bulls*** when they premiered it on mtv, I mean I almost broke down & f***in cried. I maybe could have accepted it from any other band but f***in Metallica!

They went and did the very thing they said they never would do, they went against everything they stood for in the early days, what made them so awesome to begin with. That was the fact that they were never commercial, or radio friendly. In the early days it was strictly word of mouth that started the spark that turned into a firestorm called Metallica. They went and became a parody of the very thing they laughed at, & made fun of. And for that I can't, & never will forgive them, they will never get another penny of my hard earned money! EVER!

So as you wanna justify your actions and call it loyalty, I will simply call it pure unadulterated stupidity! Why would anybody with half a mind go and support an artist that delivers sub generic bulls***, after delivering 100% pure angus beef for years & years? You wouldn’t accept this from any other franchise, or business, but when it comes to music people eat s*** a mile long, they excuse this kind of behavior, & for the life of me I don’t understand why?!!!!

As for you not wanting to be my little buddy, I have more than I need in that department. I have to say that is one blessing I have been bestowed with in my life.

I am very, very rich in friends! Friends that don’t support sub generic bulls*** unlike you!

Goodbye To Romance

Thanks girl, I am only guilty of only one thing and that is being brutally honest. I just cant call something good simply because I once liked or enjoyed a particular artists past music library. If its crap then its crap, I will not make any excuses, its this pampering & the kissing of the ass as I tend to call it, that leads these musicians astray.

Look at any great band that has lost its way, then ask your self why that may be. The answer is they are surrounded by a bunch of kiss asses that wont tell them the truth, & that there music/songs are not really up to pare. I don't blame the kiss asses entirely, if they were to actually stand up & announce there discontent for the music not being worth a crap, well they would probably only find themselves in the unemployment line. A sad fact, but a truthful one, the only producer I can even think of that has that quality of telling the honest to God truth is Rick Ruben, if you ask me the music community could use a whole lot more of these kind of guys around.

As for Zakk he is ok at best, but he isn't all that & a bag of chips, in fact I think he needs a dose of reality, he needs to slam out some hardcore riffs instead of this watered down 80's sounding bulls***. In the end its the verity of the matter that he is indeed a very, very awesome guitar player, but he is only giving out mediocre bulls***, when he could be delivering mind blowing guitar work instead, that is what actually pisses me off! To not give a 100% is nothing but laziness, & slothfulness, & as a musician myself I cant accept that, to me there is a thing known as musical integrity! A quality I seem to find less & less of in todays music community, it seems as if I am solely guilty of being part of a dying breed, now thats a damn shame if you ask me??? lol

Oh and if Zakk indeed loved his ole buddy Dimebag Darrell, he wouldn't be putting weak ass guitar work out these days, he instead would be ripping our heads off, if I had to guess Dime may be spinning in his grave right this very moment, just a thought for all you fan boys??? lol

Again thats how I roll!

Peace!

<cite>"Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus."</cite> - <strong>Ozzy Osbourne</strong>

Not many these days outlaw, not to many at all. The last two bands that I really got excited about were System Of a Down, & Tool, & just the last few years Lamb of God, I am not as happy with their newest album as compared to Ashes of the wake, but sacrament is about a three star rating out of five for me. Sounds a wee bit to much like Pantera for me, & for me there is only one Pantera, period!

I have not bought to many new albums as of recent, because there really isn't anything out there that is worth my hard earned cash. I feel as if I am reliving the 80's once again with all this emo, pop crap that is being marketed straight to the younger kids. Déjà vu to say the least!

As for a recent album purchase, I just bought Ministry's Rio Grande Blood, I listened to it on Rhapsody about three times all the way through, & warranted it worth adding to my music collection, I hear this may be Al's last hurrah, last tour before retiring from the music scene. I have to say that Rio Grande shows this as well, it is probably the best thing Al has done since psalm 69, Rio kicks much ass I must say, oh and you ever heard of Prong? I hear Tommy is with Al on this record; it may be a fundamental factor in Rio sounding so badass. Just a hunch....

I also bought a album from full blown chaos here while back, they are not to bad, but times are rough these days for decent new metal, so I take what I can get when I can get it, in other words I make by, waiting for a new and brighter day!

I am tired of being so f***in jaded, I just want my ass kicked up in my throat, but I am beginning to think I would have better luck trying my hand with playing the lottery, I could use the extra cash to say the least.

Hey SG you seem like an alright guy in my book. If you have something to say why candy coat the s***. Lay it on the line and if someone doesn't like it no loss to you. I believe this is what makes the world go round, if you have half a brain. Unlike some of the idiots out there. Oh and shall I say in here. I'm out...LOL

Peace back at you.......Joanie

The Goat strikes again. You are totally right about the Jake E. Lee comments, besides Randy, who can never be replaced. Jake was the closest thing to Randy, that Ozzy will ever get. He just had that certain something, and I for one dug it. Ozzy had that chemistry thing going with these two guitarists, and I honestly have not seen it since.

Well now that is how I roll..........Joanie

Dear Rhoads lives, I am so terribly sorry if you have somehow been offended by the fact that I have free thought, & that I don't regurgitate what other people simply say & do. If you don't like what I think, or agree with the opinions I hold on Zakk, or Osbourne, then I simply must say that your perfectly within your right to disagree. But in fair turn about it is also my right to ask that you put forth a pertinent, or valid question regarding one of my posts, in fact I actually invite that kind of behavior from the forum. However even with all that said, if all you want to do is to mud sling, or call me profane names, well then I ask you not to even bother with responding to one of my posts at all in the future.

Now as for standing on Ozzy's nuts as you so poetically put it.

Not that I feel I need to explain to you, or defend my stance, or views on Osbourne & Wylde, I will. Believe me when I say that I love Ozzy more than probably anyone else alive. I mean no disrespect in the things that I say, nor do I love Ozzy any less than the rest of you, in fact the opposite may be true shown in the fact that I sometimes question some of the decisions that Ozzy may make. In my eyes I am only guilty of expecting the very best from Osbourne, why? Because he is the pioneer of modern heavy metal, & hardcore, & he should still represent it just as well as he did 40 years ago, if not maybe even better!

To me there is a big difference between disrespect, & pure honesty. If you cant handle me being honest in my views on Ozzy, & Zakk, then maybe you should re frame from participating in any more forums, or fan sites. It is only common sense that should tell you that your going to run across some peeps that don't agree with you 100% on what you feel is true about any given performer. So again my response is, you need to not disrespect me, or anyone else within this forum for their views, after all that is what this venue is all about. If your to much of a child, or immature to handle the discussions that are held within here, then you may need to try your hand at maybe the Disney forum, or the teletubbies website.

Good luck with all that, & let us all know if maybe its more up to your actual speed on things????...

Toshay my feeble minded friend!

So canning with you're subjections, you and sleepyhollow. It seems that people who say they are fans are casting stones. Opinions,well who asked you? Tired of all the anylitical bulls*** from everyone in general. OZZY tore it up last night in Devore, I seen it with my own eyes. So f*** Off all of you that say otherwise. If you have nothing nice to say , then don't say anything at all. OZZY RULES!!!!!!!!! And in regards to ZAKK f***ing WYLD he's a shredder, and you just might say that loyaly on his part has gone a long way.

I liked Jake, he was a damn good guitarist. I thought he did a exceptional job with trying to capture some of the magic know as Rhoads & Osbourne. I think he has kind of been shuffled aside, kind of like Joe has been over looked as well.

Personally I would of rather Ozzy stuck it out with Holmes than going back to Wylde, but thats just my personal wants & desires. Wylde can squeal, & show boat all he wants, but he isn't the end all, be all. There are a zillion guitar players in this world than can smoke just as bad ass as Wylde. One guitarist that could possibly rival oh Zakk would be Logan Mader, formally of Machine Head, as well as his brief stay with Max of Soulfly, now that boy can play some f***in guitar!

Time to roll on outta here once again, peace!

have you two idiots heard down to earth cd. yeah the lyric content is so good without zakk. that album has to be ozzys worst album! so just keep thinking zakk is over rated at lyrics and playing guitar even OZZY thinks Zakk gets better with every album, and that "there is no one like Zakk ANYMORE."

I think Ozzy needs to get Daisley back. Send an apology and let Bob write those fabulous lyrics that he did for Ozzy's first 6 albums.
