Sebastian Bach Reacts To A Fan Who Calls Ozzy Osbourne A ‘Fraud’
Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach shared a post on his official Twitter page reacting to a fan who considered Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne a fraud just because he wasn’t involved with the songwriting process which is apparently a criterion when it comes to being a frontman.
As many of you know, in addition to being widely known for being the lead vocalist for Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne also was credited for being the songwriter for numerous songs such as ‘Behind the Wall of Sleep,’ ‘Into the Void,’ ‘Iron Man,’ and many more tracks for the band as well as his solo career.
However, a fan who recently started a heated conversation on Twitter claiming that Ozzy Osbourne was promoting a fraud when he first released his debut studio album ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ on September 20, 1980, mainly due to the fact that he actually didn’t own the songwriting credits to himself, he only was responsible for melody lines.
Here is what the fan said:
“I grew up an Ozzy fan, then I realized I was a Blizzard of Ozz fan, and Ozzy and Darth Hideous were promoting a fraud. Ozzy did melody lines, he did not write lyrics. But he was nothing without his musicians. Melody lines count, but you did not do those on the first album did u?”
After seeing the extreme opinion of a fan who furthermore claimed the main reason why Sebastian Bach was replaced in Skid Row was him not coming up with melody lines let alone writing lyrics to a whole song, the legendary singer shared a post on his official Twitter page mocking that fan by stating how ridiculous it’s to think that Sebastian Bach has never written a song before in his music career that spans over nearly 40 years as well as saying Ozzy Osbourne is a fraud.
Here is what Sebastian Bach said:
“This is awesome! I’ve never written a song in my life and Ozzy Osbourne is a fraud. And this guy knows what he’s talking about.”
