I fucking despise Korn and I'd buy it. Ozzy is terrible these days and NEEDS to call it a day, or career, rather.

don't know about that, Korn puts on a great show nowadays.

i'd imagine he's better than Ozzy live.

I don't care what the haters say, Ozzy was Godly tonight. It was as if God Himself had come on stage. I know what you guys will say .. lip-syncing, tele prompter etc etc but doesn't matter to me. It was my first time seeing Ozzy and no one can kill me for enjoying the show.

Nah. I've seen both live. Korn rapes him. Yes Ozzy (or might I say, Iommi/Rhoads/Daisley/Kerslake/Lee/Wylde) has better music, but Korn really delivers live, whereas Ozzy, on his best day, is pretty half-assed (as in the singing, of course).

Well Ozzy is not even able to do a decent show ... he can't sing, he has no stage presence and look like a fucking emo. The only thing he can do is swearing in TV ads.

Now I don't think I would go that far.

And for the guy that pointed out that Korn isn't metal, big whoop. Ozzy being metal doesn't make him a better performer/musician.

Ok maybe it was a little harsh. But seriously, Ozzy just sucks those days. The only reason why people respect him is because he's legendary. And I'm tired of the legendary bullshit. Iron Maiden are legendary and they can still make awesome show, not Ozzy.

I don't care if Ozzy was awesome, he is no more.

This has to be the most ignorant post i've ever read on here. I've seen Ozzy live 6 times betwen '92 and 2005 supposedly during the time everyone says he's lost it and can't sing and all this other Bullshit. Ozzy has sang awesome every time i've seen him. Sure he can't get the high notes anymore but that certainly doesn't mean that he can't sing. He does excellent with the songs he plays live and NO HE DOES NOT LIP SYNCH LIVE. I've been to enough live shows that i'm able to tell when a singer is acutally singing or if there's some help coming form somewhere else and i've never experienced that with Ozzy.

As for him not having any stage presence he has more of that than just about any frontman i've ever seen live. He may not move around like he used to but he's always getting the crowd going and getting them to sing along. He wouldn't be able to do stuff like this without being able to comand the stage. Tony Iommi doesn't move around or do much live but the man still has a huge stage presence it's not all about being able to move around the stage the whole time when it comes to that.

As for the whole looking like an emo line i'm assuming you're reffering to his black eye makeup. Something that Ozzy has been wareing on and off since the mid 80's before most of these emo pussies were born. If anything those emo bitches got the eye makeup idea from Ozzy. Sure were all pissed at Sharon and Ozzy for their law suits and how Ozzy is portrayed as such an idiot in his reality show and TV commercials but that doesn't take away from what the man has accomplished and done for the metal world and doesn't diminish his abilities as a great live performer.

Bruce Dickinson, Rob halford and Eric Adams are old as fuck and they can still hit the high notes and scream their guts out, age isn't an excuse.

That's what kills me. The only thing you can come up to defend Ozzy it that "he done that since the 80' !" So what ? This guy is only living on his past glory ! We metalheads talk shit about emos because they were makeup and black nails, but Ozzy does the same ! But since he's THE Ozzy Osbourne, no one will complain.

Think about it, if the 2009 Ozzy went to an alternate, Ozzy-free dimension and tried to get a new band, he would fail miserably. But he still get success now because hell, it's Ozzy.

It was a really good Ozzy set. He was in good spirits. Tracks 1 - 6 were like a main set with the rest whatever he could squeeze in before curfew. I Don't Wanna Stop seemed like a real encore (Not the pre-planned fake encore). Ozzy was having a great time and seemed like he didn't want to leave.

Not into Korn at all but I grabbed a spot in front of the board - the front of the stage was split by a security buffer and I was in the corner. I had fun watching security pull people out. Sometimes the fan's leg would be caught in something in the crowd and when it broke free they would both tumble.

I enjoyed the Donnas, Fishbone and Kottonmouth Kings too.

That wasn't a great performance i'll admit but besides his voice cracking at the end it wasn't all bad. I'm just going by my experiences seeing Ozzy live and he did well each time. Have you seen Ozzy live so you can back up your claim that he sucks live? As much as I love Dickinson and Harlford they don't hit the high notes like they used to either. Dickinson is the one who has kept his voice in the best shape of the three but listen to Aces High and then listen to the live version off Flight 666. While he can still hit the notes well he doesn't even hit them like he used to. Have you heard a recent live version of Exciter? Halford sings it in his normal voice he certainly can't get the notes like he used to. Unfortunately age does play a factor after years of ware and tare physically and vocally.

Ozzy does live off past glory to a certian extent but so do many other bands. The thing that makes Ozzy different from the rest of those bands is when he releases something new it still goes gold or platinum even if it sucks ass like his last one did. He isn't completely living in the past if his new material still sells very well if you ask me. I'm not saying that everything he does is OK because it's Ozzy because it's not but you can't say that he's diminishing vocally without mentioning some of his peers who are as well. As for the whole make up thing it never really bothered me that Ozzy does that at all. It never has and it never will and that's not why I don't like emo it has nothing to do with the make up at all.

As for the alternate demension line it doesn't really make much sense but I give you props for imagination at least.

Agreed, picking Youtube videos is not a decent proof, but neither is a live experience. During a show (especially if you're on the pit) your perspective is greatly altered, so the best way to really judge a singer is to watch live videos.

Dickinson and Halford may have lost a little voice but it is nothing compared to Ozzy.

Releasing crappy albums (even if they sell) and playing in TV ads is not my perception of "not living off past glory"

now enough bullshit, I don't like Ozzy, you like Ozzy, we're both right.

FYI - Ozzy was scheduled from 8 - 8:45 but played right up until the 9:00 curfew. When's the last time he played MORE than he was supposed to?

Sanitarium78
09-13-2009, 03:07 PM
My concert experiences with Ozzy have never been altered at all. I don't go in the pits at all because I like to actually watch and enjoy the show and not be constantly watching my back to make sure that no accidently KOs me at all. I'll have a few drinks but not enough to make me forget the concert experience at all.

We could argue this forever but we've both made our points and we can now move onto other threads:D

Damnit I didn't want to get involved in this but I couldn't help it. I wonder how much of this is Ozzy bashing or is it more Sharon bashing but we are using Ozzy to voice our opinions? Is it really that fair to compare him to Dickinson or Halford when he really never did anything w/ Sabbath or solo where he had to hit those Dickinson or Halford notes? Maybe if you are comparing their ages yes but their vocals styles are really not that similar especially if you consider the damage Ozzy has done to his body. Not that is any kind of excuse.

Speaking from personal experience everytime I have seen him 4 times and he was right on everytime. Wished he would change setlist up some... But really I don't see why others have to be so tough on Ozzy. He's still always seemed very humble even though others around him may not be. He's not all "look at me" and stuff like that.

Just my :2cents:

Good set. Ozzy is still good regardless of the recently stupid things he has done which is more of sharons fault than his. I saw ozzy a few years ago and his voice was fine.:horns:

^ True but I think the main reason is because he's popular. Remember the point "you wouldn't be sick of H&H like you are of Paranoid/Iron Man/War Pigs because you never hear it on the radio"?
All of the sludgeheads and stoners would be ripping on Dio if he was more popular than Ozzy.

Also notice how much people rip on Gene Simmons, Mustaine and Wylde? Yeah they can be dicks, but there are plenty of bigger dicks out there. They get the flak because they're just the most popular dicks.

Why all the dicks today?

hahahaha. Funny thread. I've had the pleasure of seeing Ozzy in his 2nd wind "prime" and he was a General on the stage. He commanded respect and got it. Since then he's become more statuesque on stage but still delivers and always has talented band members. I seriously doubt he can match the intensity of Korn live so I had more of an issue with the quote below than anything I read on here. Chastizing someone for having an opinion which is probably right isn't cool but that's just me.

The real issue here is the setlist. If I saw Ozzy and he didn't play 1 song of my favorite album Diary of a Madman I'd be pissed. That album is a masterpiece and every song is better than the horrid I don't want to change the world so I can totally see how Korn would have been more enjoyable knowing they've been playing incredible setlists.

Hopefully Ozzy (er, Sharon) is setting up a Diary Tour where he plays the album in it's entirety. That would get me back to Ozzfest in a minute!

Trying to compare the live show would be like trying to compare the stage prescence of seeing Ozzy live and seeing Dillinger Escape Plan live. Really 2 different types of shows w/ 2 different types of crowds. The frenetic energy of DEP vs Ozzy who is in his 60's at this point. Probably could have found a different comparison for Ozzy than Korn.

Korn was good when they weren't trying to sound like bands that were trying to sound like them. Saw them on the Reckoning Day tour (1995) w/Megadeth, Fear Factory, Flotsam & Jetsam when they were touring off their debut album. Amazing show. They had a new, original sound. Then MTV grabbed and ruined them forever. As far as Ozzy is concerned, I have one suggestion. DROP THE FRIGGIN KEYS OF THE SONGS! YOU CAN'T SING THAT HIGH ANYMORE! A LOT OF BANDS DO IT! THE SONGS WILL SOUND BETTER! YOU'LL SAVE YOUR VOICE! I love you man, but time (and drugs and alcohol) catches up with you.:rocker:
