Or who can't reliably perform the set due to health or whatever else.
Plus, from the practical business side, yeah, sure, fire Ozzy. And let's bring back Sabbath's second most successful vocalist?
The drummer is the guy at the back hitting stuff with sticks, right?
Dude, I've been playing guitar for 19 years (admittedly not much at all lately, but having a kid tends to fuck with your free time) so I understand that having a solid drummer is more important than having a strong vocalist. Ozzy's awful though. He's shit. Aren't they playing Symptom of the Universe as an instrumental? Fuck that. His vocals on God is Dead? make me cringe. I'm sure Iommi and Geezer could find many better projects to lend their talents to, albeit with a (much) smaller paycheck. Then again, I guess that's the answer right there, isn't it?
