My favorite was Vinny Appice. He’s got a heck of a groove, and He was tremendous on Dio’s first couple of albums.

Bill has to be my top. When I started finding music that meant something to me as a beginner starting out on the drums it was all the stuff he played on. I’ve had lots of influences over the last 43 years but he was the first major one. After him it’s Vinny but Brad really nailed the feel on 13

That worked out well. I bet we can thank Sharon for that one.
Ozzy is also complicit , or just plain stupid . Probably both .

I have to just remind myself to relax if I want to enjoy Old Sabbath and early solo Ozzy like I used to .

Grrrrrr ……..I can’t believe he let her treat his musicians that way …
Unacceptable!!!!!!!

Wait that was YOU??

It most certainly was....but realize this must also be cross referenced with the Marijuana and Drumming thread, mixed in with a bit of 'shroomage at the time......;)
Still though everything after the first album...to me...was anticlimactic....and of course it was first and the bar was set. Maybe there were "better" ones after with most excellent players but the initial impact was by then, already gone and one quasi knew what to expect in a way.
There's something that goes way beyond an eventual "replacement" or new folks in a band, which is the trials and tribulations of getting the band started and up and running in the first place.
