In many ways the world was very different back then, but one thing was similar.
There were solo artists coming out of the woodwork then. Ozzy, Ace Frehley, Dave Grohl had just released a solo album under the moniker of Foo Fighters.
Now, solo acts are most definitely a thing. Some people, myself included, will tell you that Ace Frehley and Ozzy Osbourne have yet to improve upon the body of work they created in their original bands.
As a solo musician, Ozzy succeeds on every possible level. In my critical opinion, it's because he only plays his part and barely writes honestly. The musicians write and play. Ace Frehley, these days, likes to have his fingers all over the tracks.
