What happened to Don Costa from the Ozzy band?

Postby Alkeys » Fri Feb 10, 2006 11:30 am

Does anyone know what happened to Don Costa? Like where he went? Where is he now? I know he was in Ozzy's band for a few months one time in 1982 and did a few live shows with Ozzy and Lindsay Bridgewater, and I know he showed up on that album by M80 with Niki Buzz but he was out after 1984.

Last the world heard from Don Costa was 1984.

Does anyone know what happened to him or where he is or what he's doing?

ozzyhead.com use to have some sort of map which described where
the various members of the band came from and what they left for.

can't find it now :(

Oooh, I have an old Kerrang issue, April/May 1983, and there's a Don Costa interview. It was right after Jake joined and frankly the guy didn't seem very interested in the music side of the thing. He was more into the groupie bullshit thing I guess.
From that interview, I don't picture him as a real musician so it's no surprise he just vanished.

Yes but that was before Ozzy, he didn't stay very long....and I did find something, Costa formed M-80 with ex-Vendetta guitarist Niki Buzz after being fired from Ozzy for being too outrageous: he shredded his skin with a cheese grater onstage. That's from rockdetector.com, here's a short bio about the band: http://rockdetector.com/artist,9822.sm apparently they released a demo with Costa and an album, without Costa.
