OK then

Sabbath were timeless and their stuff still sounds fresh today.

Ozzy follows trends far too much. He played with hair metal musicians in the 80s , alternative musicians in the 90s and as a result his stuff dates far too easily with the exception of the stuff he did with Rhodes which is good but still a cut below Sabbath..

There's a good reason why he still plays Paranoid & practically ignores most of his mid - late 80s output.

As for Dio i'd much rather listen to Heaven & Hell or Mob Rules over Technical Ecstacy , Never Say Die and any of the shit Ozzy did after Diary Of A Madman.

Most people sell their soul to the devil, but the devil sells his soul to Nick Cave.
