You know, I love Ozzy and Sabbath fans as my brothers and sisters. There is something magical about his work with Sabbath in the 1970's and his solo stuff in the 1980's and 1990's that just remains the best of the best in rock music.

So I know you join me in saying it is fitting that credits have come in for him as well as for Sabbath.

As a classic Sabbath fan, I do understand what you are saying.

But on the other hand? Ozzy has music out. He's got an album out that is a-ma-zing. And he has a fantastic lineup right now.

If you pick up a copy of Scream (if you haven't already) I am positive you'll flip.

If you go to see this lineup I am positive you will flip.

Maybe had the lineup NOT changed I would have agreed with you. But now? Having heard what they can do? I don't want Ozzy to let these guys slip away just yet. I want to see them in the studio creating an Ozzy album. I think they'll blow my mind. Several times, with new albums. I totally love them.

Also, sometimes I get the sense that this is a supply and demand thing. The general idea is: now that Dio is gone, Ozzy is the natural to plop in the band as lead singer. So, no consideration is given to him or what he'd doing with his own band.
