Wow Ive never heard the midgit thing, so I cant say much on that one, I can say that I have seen an interveiw not to old in time mabey like 2 years ago in where dio was saying that people had allways thoght he made the song king of rock and roll about him self or elvis lol well he sayed that it was really wrote about ozzy, (Bad blood evey body knows it but every body dosent care) would have been refering to the fact ozzy was allways on drugs, but who cared he still put on a great show,so I would have to say the DIo dosent hold a grudge with him, REally ozzy was done with sabbath before he was fired, Ozzy wasent ozzy until he went solo, And sabbath wasent really the sabath we all think of until DIO. I do however belive that DIO and gean simmions have some little fued thing going, belive it started over the horns.
When Dio joined sabbath ozzy was very upset. He would say all kinds of nasty things about ronnie in the press. During the Diary of a mad man tour, part of the show was to hang a midget. The name of the midget (given by ozzy) was Ronnie. Ozzy will bring him every night on stage and called him Ronnie. So there you go!!! thats was just one of the many awfull things ozzy did and said in regards of Ronnie james dio. But... Ozzy not only said awfull things about Dio he also said bad things about gezzer and i believed he started a rumor about Tony ioomi being GAY
