Being one of the oldest bands that I still enjoy to this day, the band has stood the test of time. Either if you are like me who prefer the Ozzy Osbourne years compared to Ronnie James Dio, both lead singers produced many insightful lyrics. Plus the vocal performances from both lead singers equally contributed to Black Sabbath’s overall success. I wanna see an interview where Ozzy Osbourne sings everything he says.
