Sharon Osbourne considers that Ronnie James Dio was not the perfect voice for Black Sabbath.
Here’s what she said about it:
“Ronnie had a great voice but to change a band that had a kind of bluesy type vocal, real gritty bluesy vocal to a rock opera vocal, it was so different,”
“I always looked at Ronnie as a Rock opera-type singer. Ozzy had such a bluesy voice, I never got it.”
After he left Black Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio went solo as Dio.
“They had two hit albums.”
“They did, they had two good hit albums, they had two good tours together. Then it was the band were fighting. There was a lot of fighting in the band with Ronnie.”
On multiple lineup changes in the band, Sharon added:
“Well, they kept getting all these different guys in.”
“Every week it was somebody else and somebody else.”
