Top 10 Reasons Why Ronnie James Dio is Better Than Ozzy Osbourne

Ronnie James Dio is better than Ozzy is so here are reasons why

The Top Ten

1 Dio is a Better Singer Than Ozzy Is

Oh yes by far he's a superior singer than Ozzy Is - christangrant

Definitely Dio is much better. - Metal_Treasure

Actually Ozzy is not a great singer.He is more of a great performer than a singer.Ronnie James Dio is both an amazing singer and a performer.Still love you Ozzy

2 Dio Has Better Songs

Holy Diver is better than Crazy Train - christangrant

No Dio has a better voice, But Ozzy songs are some of the best Classic Rock songs. - SoldierOfFortune

But those Classic Rock songs weren't just written by Ozzy they were written mostly by Iommi Ozzy pretty much only wrote the lyrics - christangrant

3 Dio Has Better Albums

Almost all of Dios albums are better than Ozzys - christangrant

4 Dio Didn't Sabotage Iron Maiden's Live Shows While Ozzy Ordered Interference with Iron Maiden's PA at the Ozzfest in 2005

This ugly incident is described in Bruce Dickinson wiki page: "In 2005, Iron Maiden co-headlined the US festival tour, Ozzfest, with Black Sabbath. Lead singer Ozzy Osbourne's wife, Sharon, encouraged family friends and members of other bands to sabotage Iron Maiden's last performance at Hyundai Pavilion in San Bernardino, California, in an attack which Rod Smallwood criticised as "vile, dangerous, criminal and cowardly", as well as disrespectful to fans who had paid to see the band perform "a full unhindered performance". Osbourne ordered interference with the band's PA, delayed the entrance of Eddie, the band's mascot, and encouraged members of the Osbourne camp to throw eggs, lighters and bottle tops from the front of the audience." - Metal_Treasure

It wasn't Ozzy. Ozzy probably didn't know bruce dissed about him he was probably sleeping. Sharon not ozzy told them to egg Bruce. And Bruce sort of provoked it - SoldierOfFortune

That's still not a good thing though because Iron Maiden is one of the most well loves Metal bands and sabotaging a live performance is not a good thing if Ozzy wasn't involved he could have stopped it but he didn't he just let it happen and Ozzy has been known to do some bad things - christangrant

5 Dio Never Sold Out

And Ozzy did with songs like Mama I'm Coming Home being very Poppy - christangrant

Mama I'm coming home isn't a selling out song; it's a ballad. Every band does it one time or another - SoldierOfFortune

It's not only Mama I'm Coming Home, there are other songs, too. And this reality T.V. show of the mid 2000s -The Osbourne's (very similar to Kardashians)... - Metal_Treasure

6 Dio Has Never Made a Bad Album

Whereas Ozzy has (Scream and Black Rain) - christangrant

Those Albums aren't bad, they are just weak like Judas Priest's Rocka Rolla - SoldierOfFortune

7 Dio Was Better in Black Sabbath

Heaven and Hell is Black Sabbaths True best album because Dio is a better singer and Songwriter than Ozzy was and plus this album was their first True Metal album - christangrant

No, the first 6 and 13 albums destroy Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules. - SoldierOfFortune

I disagree but those are good albums I just prefer Dio's albums over Ozzy's - christangrant

8 Dio is a Better Songwriter

This is true because Dio writes Metal Songs Ozzy Writes Pop Rock Songs lol - christangrant

9 Ozzy Takes Credit for Things He Didn't Do

He only wrote 10% of Blizzard of Ozz - christangrant

10 Dio's Best Album is Better Than Ozzy's Best Album

Holy Diver is a far better album than Blizzard of Ozz is and if you want to compare Black Sabbath albums Heaven and Hell is better than Paranoid Master of Reality Black Sabbath Sabotage Vol4 and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - christangrant
