Forget handling the Martin era stuff. The drumming Bill did in the 70s was far more complicated and innovative than any drumming from the Martin era. Bill would have and easier time with that than with a lot of the Ozzy material.
Ozzy's vocal limitations are one of the reasons the reunion sets didn't change at all. But Bill's limitations on what he could do also played a part in that.
