Black Sabbath.


Best Answer FLATTOP , 03 February 2017 - 11:20 pm

I've seen them all over the years Ozzy when he left Sabbath and formed Blizzard of Oz with Randy Rhodes, Iron Maiden when they used to play the Ruskin Arms in East Ham with there original singer Paul Diano a lot won't remember him.

Motörhead when they had Saxon as a support and came on stage naked with brooms and swept them off.

Motörhead were no doubt the loudest hence why I'm half deaf lol.

I've got Sabbaths very first album Black Sabbath with the witch on the front and all the early stuff must admit I've pretty much grown up with them great British band Ozzy Osbourne Geezer Butler Bill Ward and Tony Iommi the original line up. Go to the full post

Last gig until next year .

Ozzy has retired several times (last album sells millions, tour sells out) but just comes back. I blame his manager / wife.

Sabbath have also broke up a few times.

For the last 15 or so years it hasn't been about the music with Ozzy, it's been about the money.

Lemmy on the other hand lived the dream 'till the day he died.

 

Someone mentioned Maiden ? I'd say if the real truth will ever be told I'd say they are the biggest and most successful of all time.
