Greatest Black Sabbath Singer
The Top Ten
Osbourne known as the "Prince of Darkness" Osbourne is also known as the "Godfather of Heavy Metal" Osbourne's eerie vocals, early records such as their debut album Black Sabbath and Paranoid sold huge numbers. - vishwarajvithuvivi
I love Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne! He's known as the Godfather of heavy metal for a reason and he's one of my rock & roll idols. I love him! Ozzy forever!
Dio has a better voice, but I think he was better solo and with Rainbow. But Ozzy... HE'S THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS! OZZY! OZZY! M/
The other singers were some what good but the music doesn't sound the same without Ozzy. His voice blends so well with the music! It's why Black Sabbath is what it is today! Everyone else tried but Ozzy surpassed them by far!V 21 Comments
I agree with all the comments Ozzy dose fit Sabbath more, but Dio has a better voice and vocal range no matter how classic Ozzy is Neon Nights is so under rated and just great. Also i've never heard of any of the others singing with them.
Dio kicks ass compared to ozzy although ozzy Black Sabbath songs are better dio sings way better he's the 2nd greatest metal singer behind rob halford (from the best band ever judas priest)
Ozzy was a legend and there is no doubting early Sabbath were classic and groundbreaking, but I prefer Ronnie's voice and he has a larger vocal range. Heaven & Hell album was my era and also a classic of its time. Dio was also great in Rainbow (but that's another poll!)
He's no Axl Rose or Robert Plant but he has one of my favorite rock voices ever. Not as legendary as ozzy but was a great lead vocalist for them.V 15 Comments
Tony is definitely the best singer Black Sabbath has had. His performance in Headless Cross was incredible, and he should have gained more popularity.
Live shows were great with him because he could sing all other's songs with ease. He never became hoarse like that Dio feller would
This band has had good singers but Black Sabbath band with him means Black Sabbath band. in the world of rock singers he has the most powerful voice.
The BEST singer... Black Sabbath with him was really BLACK SABBATH!V 7 Comments
Born again is the most underrated Black Sabbath album. Ozzy is not even on the same planet as far as talent goes compared to Dio and Ian. He blows live and throwing buckets of water and being well liked doesn't make you a great singer. He was a great frontman but a mediocre singer.
No one compares to Gillan. He can sing Ozzy's material and Dios.
My second choice after the original Ozzy Osbourne
Ian Villanova best singer ever
Glenn is an all time badass musician the world has ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
Soulful and real. Underrated as a Black Sabbath singer. Possibly overshadowed by his awesome drumming.
The greatest vocalist in history, but not the best Black Sabbath singer!
Ronnie and Ray were on another level. Tony, Ian and Glenn were on the next. Everyone else was cut rate
If it wasn't for the aids he would have made a great career.
Dave Donato was with the band around 6 months in 1984 and sang a few demo's one being "No Way Out" which had a memorable riff of Iommi's that didn't see the light of day til 1987 on Eternal Idol in which the song changed to "The Shining"
Dave Walker done a good job with his short tenure with the band in 78 and I like his version of "Junior's Eyes"
