The Black Sabbath Thread

Recommended Posts

Yes it wasn't the greatest work of Sabbath. I guess it's one of those lost albums of Sabbath's career.

When I was learning all the great rock of the seventies Sabbath was one of them next to Zepp.

Toni did come up with some real great riffs. He's an underestimated guitarist. I really liked his lead work on War Pigs. Fairy's wear Boots is another one I like. Symptom of the Universe was great too. When I had a band called Engine Room we use to play alot of Sabbath my drummer use to really go off on Symptom of the Universe. I use to hit the chords and wait while he would do the fills. I'd just watch him and enjoy him mimick Bill Ward's fills.........at times when me, the bassist and the drummer would lock-in together.....Symptom was like flying on a Jet-plane!!!! :D

Symptom Of The Universe totally Rocks mean ass riff!

Ian Gillian really does a good job on vocals.

Mr Grover 'n' Mr Gillian

You musta made a million

The night that Frank Zappa caught on fire! :D

Sorry, his name is Gillan. :)

The above is from the Deep Purple song "MTV" where he has a little dig at the media for only wanting to talk about the past and getting their names wrong.

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

Volume 4

Masters of reality

Their "image hasn't been looked after"? Not sure what you mean by that. They've headlined Ozzfest and have been inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame. Black Sabbath have always been a bit of the black sheep of rock n' roll if that's what you mean but it's a role they play well.

Ive always hated comparisons between the two Zeppelin and Sabbath, in Hammer Of The Gods Sabbath are tlaked about been just anohter Zeppelin rip off band. This i think is unfair because they had their own unqiue sound.

Shame there sint a decent DVD release of Sabbath, I own the Never Say Die concert by Sanctuary but this is hardly them at their best. Has anyone seen the Black Sabbath Story DVDS? wish they would release a decent live represenatation of them from the early 70s.

That's all well and good but what does it have to do with Sabbath's "image not being looked after"?

To my ears Zep and Sabbath have two very distinct sounds but both can engage in some foreboding musical excursions that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Even then, I don't see any real similarity.

I've come to the realization last month that "The Wizard" is one of the greatest songs of all time. Gotta love when Ward is doing his fills (I guess that's the word, I don't know, I'm not a drummer :P ) while Iommi is doing a short solo.

What can I say?

They're fucking excellent and you're a moron if you don't like em!

:beer:

I was on the prowl like a hungry cat, looking for a quote to quote. As you can tell by my username, avatar and signature, I'm not a moron. He he.

I love of course the Ozzy era most, but also all the other eras. There are many great moments in all the various incarnations.

When I think of bands like Zeppelin, Sabbath, Purple, Rainbow, etc, I get a bit depressed. They don't make music like this anymore.

The Pope comments on Ozzy Osbourne: "Just vile and disgusting, he should be ashamed. Don't get me wrong, I loved him when he was in Sabbath.." B)

The Pope had better shut his mouth up esp in areas he's NOT familiar with and that is THE ART OF MUSIC.....it's about time someone told HIM off!!! :) :)
