Ozzy "Going Off Rails" At Tony Iommi



The "Godfather of Heavy Metal" has filed suit with the US Patent and Trademark Office, claiming that Black Sabbath guitarist and former bandmate Tony Iommi illegally seized ownership of the landmark band's name.

According to a report in the NY Post [via The Daily Swarm], Osbourne is suing Iommi for a 50 percent interest in the Sabbath trademark as well as a cut of any profits Iommi's enjoyed thereby, going so far as to claim that his "signature vocals" are responsible for the band's "extraordinary success," which the suit suggests plummeted after his departure.

He kinda has a point.
