    I think Dave is a better frontman , BUT I think Ozzy is a better vocalist . I was talking with some friends of mine last night and they are in a band and we discussed this and all agreed with this conclusion .

    I think Ozzy is massively underrated as
    a vocalist and song writer . IMO he is the best heavy metal hard rock singer of all time besides Bruce Dickinson .

    His work with Sabbath in the 70's was beyond it's time . His solo work is great also .

    Ozzy is great but I'd rather listen to Dave's voice any day, and certainly would take VH over anything Ozzy's done.

    Yeah don't get me wrong , I like Dave and his voice too but if I personally could start a band with any vocalist in the world I would pick the Oz .

    Dave and Ozzy are two completely different animals created from 2 very different scenes.

    Didn't we do this already? BTW Ozzy doesn't write lyrics or music (His guitarists & Bass players do that) and his melodies tend to follow the guitar parts anyway. So as a songwriter I don't think Ozzy even comes close to Dave. As far as vocal style, I think Ozzy lacks character and emotion in his voice, always sings in the same nasally kinda range. As a showman, Ozzy just kinda stumbles around and seems to enjoy himself. Yet somehow he has a kind of charisma that makes everybody love him. Me too. Go figure. I prefer Dave though 'cos he's in control of everything whereas Ozzy is almost like a great frontman by accident...

    i cant really disagree, but... i do think ozzy's singing and stage presence is meant to be that way, to make it kinda erie in a way.

    I like David Lee Roth better! I think Dave is a better singer a better songwriter and much cooler to watch live than Ozzy.

    I have seen both in concert. Dave with VH and solo, Ozzy solo. I'm sure Ozzy with Black Sabbath back in their prime would have been the BOMB! Ozzy solo is great, but not as great as Dave with or without VH. Dave is the best frontman of all time. Maybe Ozzy is the second best of all time.Peace out.

    If I'm correct, one of the reasons Ozzy quit Sabbath was because he felt Sabbath was losing it. VH was opening for them at the time and he felt VH was blowing them off the stage night after night.
