I can't be bothered to look. Is he referring to 1992 or 2004?

I had no idea this occurred in '92.

I won't flip out or anything, just nod my head slightly, maybe check it out, et al

I thought he was a terrible fit in '92 and an even worse one in '04. I know it was last minute and everything, but still. People have been freaking out about it ever since and I really thought it sucked.

I've known about this since it happened in 1992. For those who don't know the story, Ozzy wanted Sabbath to open for him on what was gonna be Ozzy's last show:lol: Sabbath had just finished up the Dehumanizer tour and depending on what story you hear Dio either refused to open for Ozzy or his contract with Sabbath ran out. Dio had only signed on to do one album and tour with Sabbath and these shows happened right after his contract had expired with them. Those are pretty much the reasons why they asked Halford to step in at the last minute. Weather the story or Dio's contract is true or not, it's really up to him weather or not he wanted to open for Ozzy. I think this had more to do with Ozzy/Dio having bad blood than anything. I've never known Dio to miss an opportunity to perform for the fans because of a contract running out. It's completely out of character for him.

I know sometimes stuff get past us but this happened awhile ago. You really need to get on top of things Fonzbear:D

Ya, it's not a very good fit. And no, I didn't know about this until I saw it on guitars101 so I was a bit surprised to say the least.

Not knowing is fine. Everyone has to find everything out for the first time.

The point I think is knowing, or at least being able to assess, what everyone else might know. Chances are, on a metal website, Rob "metal god" Halford having sung for THE metal band Black Sabbath is bound to be common knowledge.
