If it wasn't for that silly reality show he had back in the early 2000's, he would have faded into obscurity a long time ago. Having said that, he had some pretty good songs in the 70's and 80's.

happy_bday 'Prince...'.

There's an excellent Ozzy/Sabbath tribute that comes through town every so often (I've read they're really good), but I doubt I'll subject my hearing to it. Same with doing another ZoSo show (Led Zeppelin tribute), these guys are freaking loud!

Oh well. You can stay young at heart and mind but the body doesn't always keep up.

Ozzy has been quoted as saying that he didn't expect to be alive past 30.

I actually played in an Ozzy/Sabbath tribute band for a few years.... gave me a whole new respect for his music and the talent of his musicians.

My tenuous connection with him is that we used to visit a Harley Riders' Club that met in the pub the band used to frequent in their early years. And an ex-girlfriend of mine was pictured dressed in a black cloak in the artwork for an album cover.

It looks like a full body shot of an evil Mona Lisa.

No wonder I couldn't figure it out, I was only looking at Ozzy album covers! duh

==========
Artwork

The Black Sabbath album cover features a depiction of Mapledurham Watermill, situated on the River Thames in Oxfordshire, England. Standing in front of the watermill is a figure dressed in black.[19] The name of the woman pictured on the front cover is forgotten, though guitarist Iommi says that she once showed up backstage at a Black Sabbath show and introduced herself.[3] According to feelnumb.com, which featured an article on the album cover, "Not much is known about the eerie woman used in the photo other than she was a model/actress hired for the day and her name was Louise."[20]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sabbath_(album)#Artwork
==========

The only Black Sabbath albums I've owned is Paranoid (War Pigs, Paranoid, Iron Man) and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (8-track grab bag). Early Rush appealed more to the weird but mostly quiet kid in me than straight Metal (Maiden and Priest), although I had some of that too. I have a good bit of Ozzy, though.

Wikipedia gets it wrong of course!
Her name was Carol, her flatmate's boyfriend who arranged the shoot was a photographer who had a studio on Oxford Street, and thought she would be ideal with her raven hair, dark eyes and pale complexion. She did it as a favour for no fee, not being a professional model. (She was a stewardess on the ill-fated Court Line) Not sure about the veracity of the location.

Thanks for straightening that out, BD-123. cheers

++++++++++

We lifted to Ozzy tonight, had a great workout! biggrin

Other than Perry Mason and I Just Want You (first two tracks), I'm not feeling much love for Ozzmosis. EDIT: See You On The Other Side is ok.

But Blizzard of Ozz (including studio version of I Don't Know above), holy crap!

Guess I'm not *that* much of an Ozzy/Sabbath fan as I'm not digging any deep cuts and sticking pretty much with the hits. These are my favorites so far (in alphabetical order)...

Bark At The Moon
Close My Eyes Forever
Crazy Train
Dreamer
Flying High Again
Goodbye To Romance
I Don't Know
I Just Want You
Mama, I'm Coming Home
Mr. Crowley
No More Tears
Perry Mason
See You On The Other Side
Shot In The Dark
Suicide Solution

w/Black Sabbath...

Iron Man
Paranoid
War Pigs


...and I bet that's the setlist I'd hear at a tribute show.


I do love how the Prince of Darkness also shows his softer side...

Funny. I am not a huge Ozzy/Sabbath fan but I had both Paranoid and Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath on cassette when I was in high school.
