Talking about control freaks, divas, and huge egos, we can't skip Axl Rose and the whole Guns N' Roses turmoil. For the first four albums, the core line-up stayed relatively stable with only Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler being replaced by Gilby Clarke and Matt Sorum respectively. But after 1996, the band saw so much inner drama, pretty much everyone except Rose was gone from the band leaving Axl in complete control. Besides ruining his voice, leaving shows mid-song because of negative reaction from the crowd, and behaving like a control freak during the recording of the infamous "Chinese Democracy" album, Rose also fired just about every musician from the band. During his reign as the sole original member, he went through 11 musicians in total, firing them when he became dissatisfied with the collaboration. Something must have changed in his life in 2016, since he fired almost everyone one last time, reunited with Slash and Duff McKagan, and actually got his voice back (kind of). For the last five years, there have been no changes to the band's line-u, so he must be doing something right.

Ozzy (and Sharon) come to mind.

Fuck yes.

The way they have treated previous band members is shocking. Even rerecording blizzard and diary as a way so bob daisley wouldnt get any royalties when he wrote the majority of the songs.

The way sharon treated maiden at the 2006 ozzfest was appalling. Hope the bitch is never remembered kindly when she dies.

She is one vile piece of shit alright.

She's been great for their bank account but terrible for the music side of it.

I hate how Randy Rhoads is forever a pawn in their story, where they were in the process of chewing him up and spitting him out like all the others when he died.

Yep. No muscian who has worked with ozzy has anything nice to say about ozzy or sharon.

They ended zakks side bands because they were concerned zakks profile was getting higher than ozzys.

Poor jake e lee has been treated like shit by sharon.

I think previous sabbath reunions were aborted because sharon wanted to manage the band against iommi' s wishes.

When she dies it will be interesting how many muscians will go public with their experiences of dealing with the osbornes.

Randy was just fodder, but i thought he had no inclination of working for ozzy once the diary...tour finished. He made up his mind of going back to teaching, and no longer wanting to be in ozzys band.
