    • Ozzy has parkinsons, Correct Ozzy has been a drug addict his whole life, Correct Ozzy has always relied on vocal processing, Correct Ozzy's wife blah, Ozzy's life blah blah, Correct BUT Ozzy still delivers new quality music & you know what? "Ozzy" is still an artist not a nostalgia act brand. Period.  
    • It's a combination of necessity and a stylistic choice. Ozzy is still able to sing to some quality, he just can't do it to a consistent standard live. I have heard him as recent as 2018 sounding relatively ok (in parts of his set). I think had Andrew worked the melodies and keys a bit more to Ozzys current abilities, he wouldn't have had to rely on processing as much. Ozzy has always enhanced his voice, going as far back as the late 80s with live performance, and his later day albums have been been rife with it... this is just the absolute pinnacle of it so far.  I don't know, there are pensioner singers like Coverdale out there who can no longer hit the heigh notes of their youth, yet with a producer and know how they write new songs that they can sing now, and it doesn't sound heavily processed (a judgement from Forevermore and the good to be bad albums).  Anyway, I'm not 100% blaming Andrew for it, but it does sound lazy, and is a usual trait of modern pop producers.
    • Libertad had a strong Scott Weiland influence. Contraband was more Slash / Duff (and Matt / Dave) sound with lyrics written later. Funny thing is Contraband and Chinese are nothing alike 
    • Yeah, Bercy was 13th though L'Arc technically ended up being the 15th when they finally hit the stage at 1am  I had a flight to Geneva just a few hours later. I remember I spent only about £80 for London -> Paris -> Geneva -> London flights and was couchsurfing so I didn't pay anything for accomodation. Tickets were only about £40-50, I spent so much less on going to gigs in 2010 than I would in 2020 where I'd have to spend £90+ just for a concert ticket :/
