I saw Sabbath a few times when they had to change their name to Heaven and Hell because it wasn't the Ozzy Show and that was great. Ozzy's a shit singer, and always has been. Now that he's an old man and probably wears diapers he's not worth paying to see, whether he's playing with Tony Iommi or Zakk Wylde or a reanimated Randy Rhoads (actually, I'd see that). Whatever, I'm sure it'll still be an enjoyable show because Tony is still a great guitarist and Geezer is a great bassist and they'll be playing old classics, but I wouldn't pay for it.
So, just to be clear, when the drummer is different it isn't Black sabbath and you don't care, but if Ward was in the band and Ozzy wasn't but Tony Martin was then it'd be ok and you'd care and you'd buy a ticket and it's be Black Sabbath. Correct?
