Ozzy Suing over Black Sabbath name

I've been following this over on Blabbermouth.

Some of the posts/comments over there have been hilarious.

 

I guess I have mixed feelings on this as I see why Tony should own the name since all of the members left the band and left him as the only person left to carry on. You can argue(as Ozzy has) that if it wasn't for him and Ozzfest that the Sabbath name would be in the toilet but on the other hand they could of never carried on over the years without Tony and we wouldn't have all of the great albums with Dio and Tony Martin. Some argue that the 4 original members should have a 25% stake in the name but what about Dio since he was a huge part of bringing the band back on the Heaven and Hell album after the very poor selling Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die plus Dio also brought them back when he rejoined for Dehumanizer. Plus when you take into account what their doing as Heaven&Hell then maybe Dio should get a small stake in the name if it's getting split up.

Anyone care to wager that the sea hag (aka Sharon) was the one behind this lawsuit? Let me get this straight - the Osbournes, who screwed Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake out of millions in royalties, are claiming to be the good guys in this suit? Fuck that noise. They're a pair of addle-minded, money-grubbing, unscrupulous, greedy assholes. Oh, they're the ultimate media whores, too. Maybe they can settle it like the squabbles between Tony and Ozzy in their school days when Iommi used to punch out Ozzy on a regular basis?

Your comment about Sharon and how they screwed Daisly and Kerslake is exactly what everyone was talking about over at Blabbermouth and I agree 1000%. Ozzy or should I Sharon sees how the Dio fronted lineup is doing and as of right now how they don't need or better yet want Ozzy around to be successful so she now wants the Sabbath name. What is Ozzy gonna do if he wins? Grab Bill and a different Guitar and Bass player and call it Sabbath? What greed.

 

I think Iommi should pull what John Fogerty's old label did and sue Ozzy for having solo material that sounds to close to Sabbath and demand a % of all royalties from Ozzy solo material. Now that would be hilarious. :lol:

 

Or better yet replace Ozzy's voice on all of the old Sabbath albums with Dio's voice.

Sharon's a greedy bitch, and she can kid herself all she wants about being a smart businesswoman, she's just a fucking gold digger plain and simple. Living off Ozzy's career, but not limiting herself to just his, but also trying to live off of Iommi's, Daisley's, Kerslake's career as well... class act... not. <_<

"The new law of evolution in corporate America seems to be survival of the unfittest. Well, in my book you either do it right or you get eliminated.

 

In the last seven deals that I've been involved with, there were 2.5 million stockholders who have made a pretax profit of 12 billion dollars. Thank you.

 

I am not a destroyer of companies. I am a liberator of them!

 

The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed -- for lack of a better word -- is good.

 

Greed is right.

 

Greed works.

 

Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

 

Greed, in all of its forms -- greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge -- has marked the upward surge of mankind.

 

And greed -- you mark my words -- will not only save ____________________, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA.

 

Thank you very much."

 

 

 

 

You say greed as if it is a bad thing... :) Thanks Gordan Gekko.

 

Seriously, we know Ozzy is a frizzle fried puppet to his ever so lovely, innocent and devoted wife. (she is ruthless, no lie.)

 

But to interject logic and sense to the discussion, 4 guys recorded the Sabbath stuff, be-it Ozzy, Dio, Martin, Gillan on vox and logic and sense says that unless you were a pay for play studio/live hack than you should get you fair (see fair) share.

 

I think the whole re-recording w/o Ozzy angle would be brilliant and talk about a slap in the face. :)

 

RJD is my fave of the lot, but would it not be cool to re-record the old Sabbath stuff with a gaggle of guest singers?

Quite frankly, in my opinion, there was only one Sabbath, and the band finished when Ozzy left.

If Iommi re-recorded them with anyone else, then he would be no better than Sharon Osbourne, and I wouldnt piss on the re-recorded albums if they were on fire.

 

I dont care who is right or wrong in this, but nobody but nobody should piss on the legacy of the real Black Sabbath.

I totally agree Pete. Ozzy is simply a puppet with Sharon pulling the strings. She's a road whore that has nothing to do with Sabbath and should stay the fuck out it. But she won't do that because $ is involved. As if tampering with the classic Ozzy albums was not enough. :2up:

I hated that fuckin' whore ever since she pulled that shit with IRON MAIDEN. :doh:

I hope sharon gets a rectal disease from a cow. :eek:

 

Backed and I'll also say that after that fiasco and what Zakk Wylde said about Bruce Dickinson saying "Act like a Cunt get treated like a Cunt", I've hardly played any of my BLS or Zakk solo discs.

Yeah Sharon got Daisley and kerslake off the original Blizzard album. The only one you can get new is the remixed one now. It's a disgrace.

    • I think that is why the last 2 Nordic Union albums have flopped. The first album was probably 50/50.
    • Standard Frontiers approach. Take a bunch of demos written by one of their go-to songwriters, polish them up, get a popular name to sing on them and call it an album. Or, even more dishonestly, a "band."
    • OK, but ultimately boring. No wow factor and they played a bunch of songs I didn't know despite being billed as playing the debut. hey ho. 
    • Folk, Prog, AORish.... however you wanna categorize them, these are some of the best vocal harmonies I've heard in forever. Lots of comparisons to Crosby, Stills & Nash in the YT comments Figure this should appeal to some here....           “Troika“, combining the immense talents of Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train), Neal Morse (Transatlantic) and Ross Jennings (Haken), initially began with Morse writing some acoustic songs he thought would be enhanced by strong vocal harmonies. After reuniting with former Spock’s Beard bandmate Nick D’Virgilio, the duo specifically sought out Jennings to complete the trio (all of whom contributed material to the project). Recorded during lockdown, D’VIRGILIO, MORSE & JENNINGS delivers melodic acoustic-filled anthems, charged rockers and sensitive ballads – all part of the mix – and the unique blend of the three voices and styles have created an album in which you will encounter these musicians in a way you’ve never heard before. Are you a fan of acoustic rock from the ‘70s with a touch of classic rock thrown in? If so, you’re going to absolutely love ”Troika”. This mostly-acoustic rock offering spends the first half bathing you in Crosby, Stills, and Nash-like acoustic pop rock full of fabulous multi-part lead vocal harmonies while the second half throws in some Hendrix meets Styx meets Foreigner classic rock to up the attitude. It’s such a fine record that the masses need to hear, and while the super-group last name approach will work fine for prog rock diehards, it just doesn’t roll off the tongue for the people who will really enjoy this record the most – regular lovers of vocal harmony-rich classic rock. Heck, even calling the band Troika would have been simpler. This is one of those delightful albums that has soothing melodic wonders and ripping, ‘70s-vibe classic rock tunes, and there truly isn’t a weak link in the 12-song collection. If you’re one of those people complaining that they just aren’t making great rock albums like they used to, you’ll want to grab a copy of this CD as soon as it’s released. Highly Recommended   01 – Everything I Am 02 – Julia 03 – You Set My Soul on Fire 04 – One Time Less 05 – Another Trip Around the Sun 06 – A Change Is Gonna Come 07 – If I Could 08 – King for a Day 09 – Second Hand Sons 10 – My Guardian 11 – What You Leave Behind 12 – Julia (Alternative Version) [Bonus Track] Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train) – vocals, drums Neal Morse (Transatlantic) vocals, keys, bass, guitars Ross Jennings (Haken) vocals, guitar
    • "Down to the Devil" is quite catchy. Shame this is only available on VINYL and as a digital download as far as I can tell... 
    • Sad isn't it. Listened to Sultans last night. That was so good.  This still sounds like 1 endless song with different words. A travesty and a waste.
    • The Needle Lies-Queensryche
    • Yeah such a mark up from them on certain things recently...the Devils Train & Madhouse cds where up in the region too...unreal   it cost £15odd direct from record company...with VAT & postage.
