Hard to believe this guy was being blamed for the decline of western civlizations and terrified middle America in the 80s.

Onkel Buck: Hard to believe this guy was being blamed for the decline of western civlizations and terrified middle America in the 80s.


Agreed.  His best work was in the 70's.  Maybe middle America was just wading through their Donnie and Marie 8 tracks and didn't notice until then.

They sequenced his genome a number of years back. He has some small mutation that ramps up both his addiction and tolerance to drugs.

I celebrate his entire catalog.

/actually just up to Bark at the Moon

Damn. I love Ozzy but they'll knight anyone. Didn't it used to be that you had to slay a dragon or rescue a princess or something?

In that case Dio should have been knighted a long time ago but he isnt British, just a bad ass.

You can be non British and Knighted by the Queen. You just can't use the title Sir or Dame before your name.

I thought there might be a loophole but I didnt care enough to investigate. But now I know!

/ Dio should be canonized anyway

Geezer Butler should get knighted long before Ozzy. He wrote most of those Sabbath lyrics. You can really tell the difference between the lyrics of the Sabbath years and Ozzy's solo career where he was forced to write himself;

Children of the Grave from Sabbath:

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?

Bark at the Moon from Ozzy's solo career:

Howling in shadows
Living in a lunar spell
He finds his heaven
Spewing from the mouth of hell
Those that the beast is looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him

also, fark ozzy and his fans. idiots embrarassing metal for the better part of 25-30 years.
 
2014-05-05 11:14:04 AM  

Saw him 30 years ago, he was pathetic. Easily the worst concert I ever saw. Lethargic and barely able to make himself understood. Now I respect his work with Sabbath, but this 'Prince of Darkness' business.... :snort:


//Now, Sir Geezer that has a nice ring to it.

Its because of the *quality* of the coke.

you can do lots and lots of coke if you get the good stuff (if you can afford it, that is).  Its the street coke thats been stepped on 14 times that will kill you.

I'm seeing sabbath on June 1st. I would go no matter what, but after watching some recent live recordings from this year and last year, I can't wait. Other than sometimes rough vocals from Ozzy (of course), they still sound great. There is no point to this other than to boast that I'm seeing them

Wow, this site made my Kaspersky light up like a Christmas tree. Must be some good stuff there.

Ozzy doesn't deserve this honor. But Sharon deserves sainthood for keeping this family together after all the crap he put her thru. No one can argue that she wasn't beside him "thru good times and bad."

The best part of the article is the comments. Lots of name calling and asking how to sign the petition. If only they could scroll up a bit for the clearly labeled link...

Well in a normal relationship if one partner is a crazed drug addict the sane thing to do is leave if they refuse to get clean and sober. But when that drug addict makes a crap ton of money and is the family cash cow that's harder to do. I don't know what that says about here but it is a different dynamic than "I'm keeping my family together because we're a family"

I'd agree, within in her family, Sharon is a saint.

But as a businesswoman, dragon is being kind.  For no other reason than to increase Ozzy's profits, she had the original Ozzy records remastered with the original bassist and drummer's parts redone by Ozzy's new band.  It's criminal that Bob and Lee can't buy a new issue of Blizzard of Ozz with themselves on it.

I saw them a couple weeks ago.  Ozzy both looks and sounds light years better than he used to.  I saw him solo back in 2009 and I actually felt bad for the guy.  Then, he looked really out of it and lethargic.  Now, he's energetic, upbeat and seems to be having a blast on stage.

Indeed.  You get the title of either GBE or KBE, depending on how awesome you are.  The American who wrote the Good Friday Accord was given a GBE, but he cannot use the title "Sir" since he's not British.

So eating bats, being a drug and booze addled train wreck who choked his wife nearly to death constitutes knighthood?
