Unfortunate but not surprising. He fought a good fight. Rest in peace – I hope you’re already jamming with David Byron and Gary Thain somewhere.

R.I.P. If Sharon and Ozzy had any dignity left they’d leave some kind words after his passing but I’m not holding my breath.

Great drummer. Screwed by the Osbourne’s sadly. Terrible treatment. So many musicians not credited by big names all the time.
