So who is the one person in Metal who is the most Metal?
do you mean metal image?
Or are you wanting a person/band that is the definition of metal?
I want the one person who if you looked up Metal in the dictionary his/her picture would be there.
Ozzy Osbourne.....without a doubt.
Rob Halford, he's still functional too unlike Ozzy.
If I went back earlier, Alice Cooper even though he's not metal every metal band today revere's him and his impact on the music world.
Rob Halford is metal, but Ozzy is the God Father of metal............his last album Scream was decent, and that was 2010...so he is still functional
BTW, his son Jack just got married....and ole Ozzy looked spiffy!
Sorry Ozzy gave up his crown when he sold out doing his Reality show. I can never think of him the same since.
Alice Cooper on the other hand when he tours in Europe all the "Badass" Metal bands walk up and ask for his autograph and are humbled in his presence. He gets a kick out of it.
Halford's imprint on metal is still with us, both his vocal style and the Iconic metal fashion he brought with him.
Ozzy's reality show intensified his metalness...........showing dogs shitting in his house on TV......now that's METAL
Besides, Sharon made him do it!!!
Rob Halford, without a shadow of a doubt. I like Ozzy and all, he's a great character, but musically he isn't that good I think, I think even RH performs Black Sabbath songs better than him!
Halford also changed the face of metal with the whole S&M leather and studs carry on (well, him and Judas Priest bassist Ian Hill), and I think changed many attitudes by being the first big name to come out as gay, because, if I'm honest, metal never struck me as the most gay-friendly genre! Let's not forget the six-octave singing range and legendary songs like You've Got Another Thing Coming, Breaking the Law and United that he wrote!
Dunno Matt, when Ozzy had Iommi, Geezer, and Bill Ward, they laid out some awesome metal.
