With all due respect for Ozzy, but when I think Black Sabbath I think Iommi.

When I hear Iron Man, it's the guitar riff that packs the heavy punch. Wizard, Wicked world, Heaven & Hell, Headless Cross, Country Girl, Mob Rules, I, etc. Whatever you name from Sabbath, odds are there's some riff in there that gives it the personality it has.

When I think Ozzy, I think Diary of a Madman, Crazy Train, Mr. Tinkertrain, Believer, etc (all amazing songs).

When I think Ronnie James Dio, I think Holy Diver, Dream Evil, Lock up the Wolves, Rock & Roll Children, etc.

As a fan of all things mentioned in this comment, I really do believe it's Iommi who deserves the Sabbath name. He's the one who "started" it. He's the one who gave the personality it has (the 'heavy metal' sounding guitar), he's the one who kept it alive. Even if Sabbath had been reduced to playing in clubs, it still sounded great. This is coming from an owner of every Sabbath CD (except Forbidden [couldn't find that]), and every Ozzy CD.

Respect to them all. My 2 cents.
