Default Use of the Black sabbath name ?

T'was something that lofty said in the metal thread that Dio,Iommi, bulter and the drummer(can't think of his name) can't use the sabbath name(and use heaven and hell instead) because of Sharon Osbourne ? Surely sharon osbourne has nothing to do with the sabbath name ? Of all the stuff I've read on sabbath, never once did I see her name mentioned about having any control of the name. Surely tonny Iommi owns the sabbath name, no ?

Yeah - Sharon made sure Ozzy has the name.

Which is a pity since the Dio material is far superior to Ozzy's overall. Granted Black Sabbath (album) and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath are great works but in the long run Ozzy couldn't compare with Dio full stop.

Too rundown to search for the link but check Youtube for Dio Stars and you'll find an amazing video (for us rockers, the gay ass lame-o dancey heads shouldn't even be in this thread).

Basically what it is that Iommi owns the name but Sharon cunting Osbourne made him sign something that if he used the name with another singer, then there would never again be a reunion of the original lineup. I actually do think its a good idea to keep heaven and hell seperate as the material is much different rather than listening to Ozzy wheeze his way through Paranoid for the 100th time. I know I am more looking forward to seeing them at hellfest
