  1. maybe the most pathetic batch of rock/metal nominations ever. Just completely stupid.

  2. Just watched SABBATH live DVD GATHERED…….Iommi and Butler are totally on top of their game. Very impressive if not perfect. OZZY s drummer definitely holds his own. The singer sounds spot on here and there, misses a line or 2, curses a lot and deals with bad posture. In other words DIO did a way better job live but OZZY made the better studio album (by far). OZZY is no longer the frontman that he was. Iommi/Butler are the real supertzars here.

  3. 13 will win, the other bands play old wooden sticky floor big bars now.

  4. Ozzy wanders in that gin & tonic waddle but still is the band. Yeah, Dio was amazing, but Ozzy had the ’70-’80 bullets on his belt. Believe me, Ozzy is better than the last album-tour he did with Geez’ & Tone’….they all agree on that. Ozzy told me that last tour was a mess.

  5. Eric christensen says:

    Can’t beat ozzy in concert sounds just like the albums. Your shoes great

  6. Doom and Gloom from the Stones for best rock song? WOW, that’s pretty ridiculous. As a huge Stones fan I think the song is awful. The guitar is not even Richards, its Jaggar and the drums don’t even sound like Charlie

  7. 3 words….Alice In Chains !!!!!
