What’s not been said about or done by Ozzy already? Legendary frontman of the iconic rock band Black Sabbath. Extraordinary solo artist who’s stage performances are still talked about. And more recently, an A list reality TV star of the highest LA celeb proportions. Ozzy left Black Sabbath at the height of their popularity in 1978. This was a major surprise as the Sabbath had virtually invented heavy metal before it was a thing. Normally solo artists often flounder when leaving their highly successful band but Ozzy released Blizzard of Ozz in 1980 and Diary of a Madman in 1981. His success was instant and his onstage bat beheading antics continued, making him one of the most loved and long lasting of all headbangers.

This makes me think of one, single thing. That Busta Rhymes could be the hip hop side of Black Sabbath, crazy as it sounds but true if you compare their content with his content. This is a hell of sampling though and matching of artists of irrelevant scenes! Thumbs up!
