Or, to be more accurate, none of those things. There are twice as many albums with Ozzy than with Ronnie because internal issues forced the band apart in '82 which they later all regretted and realised should never have happened. Most of the reason they split was because Ronnie, and the rest of the band, were each being lied to by one of the engineers working on the 'Live Evil' album.

Ronnie left again in '92 because Ozzy had done nothing but bad-mouth him in the press when he was in Sabbath, and then the rest of the guys wanted to open for Ozzy on his farewell tour and Ronnie refused.
