Whom do you prefer? I liked the first Sabbath albums, Ozzy voice was soft and suited strangely with the doom style of their music.However, DIO, a technically much better singer than Ozzy, offered Sabbath a brand new lyricist, nice themes to write for, and some great songs.I havent decided whom i prefer...Possibly Ozzy, but the schoic is really so difficult...

I'm kinda lost out of nowhere. But was it their song in the soundtrack of Iron Man? I think Change is from them is it? or I'm wrong? I seem to like some songs without trying to remember the singer and title sometimes. But the song in the movie Ironman is nice. I like it same with Change.

Iron Man comes from album Paranoid, their second album, at 1970, with Ozzy at vocals. Changes comes from Vol 4, again with Ozzy at vocals. Dio joined band at 1980 and they wrote Heaven And Hell, a truly amazing album.

both made important albums that will remain in the hard rock history, i preferir Ozzy's lineup because with Dio they only did "Heaven and hell" ,a good record but just one

Sadly you are not well informed. DIO also participated in Mob Rules and Forbidden!At different line - ups though

I like both Ozzy and Dio, and in Sabbath they were both awesome, but you have to consider Ozzy was co-founder and probably the one that put Sabbath on the map, But after he went Dio made a good job of picking Sabbath back up, but I have to go witht he original Ozzy. Dio is awesome in his own band as well as Rainbow and Sabbath,but thats how I feel.

It has to be Ozzy, the original is usually the best :-)

I don't think there is a need to compare Ozzy and Dio.. Just worship them.. About Dickinson...No doubt him all the way...

I would have to say that Ozzy is my favorite. He has so much music out there. Now the early Sabbath was great and Dio is good too but I don't think they had the time to get as much out there as Ozzy. I'm not the musicologist though...lol..that is my b/f. He can talk about music and musicians all day.

I sort of agree with you I find that overall Ronnie is a better singer but Ozzy is just a superior song writter !! So if i was to choose it would be ozzy
