Black Sabbath Info:

Black Sabbath are an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward. The band has since experienced multiple line-up changes, with Tony Iommi the only constant presence in the band through the years.

Black Sabbath are cited as pioneers of heavy metal. They have sold over 70 million records worldwide. Black Sabbath were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. They have also won two Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance. -Wikipedia

Black Sabbath Trivia:
• Black Sabbath formed in Birmingham, England in 1968 under the name Polka Tulk Blues Band (soon shortened to "Polka Tulk"), and later Earth, playing blues rock and hard rock.

• Earth moved in a darker direction when their bassist, Geezer Butler, a fan of the black magic novels of Dennis Wheatley, wrote an occult-themed song titled "Black Sabbath" (the song name was apparently inspired by a 1963 Mario Bava film).

• Tony Iommi lost the tips of two fingers on his fretting hand while working in a sheet metal factory

bull; In the late seventies Osbourne and Ward supposedly took LSD every day for two years.

• Elton John is a huge fan of Black Sabbath,

• While touring in Texas Ozzy was arrested for peeing on the Alamo.

• Ozzy once bit off the head of a bat during a concert

Black Sabbath Quotes:
"I can honestly say, all the bad things that ever happened to me were directly, directly attributed to drugs and alcohol. I mean, I would never urinate at the Alamo at nine o'clock in the morning dressed in a woman's evening dress sober."

"I've had every known chemical--cocaine, booze--and tobacco is the hardest one in the world for me to quit. You watch old flicks? It's suggestion by looking at something: You see a cigarette, and it makes you want to smoke!"

"The down side of being outrageous is that you have to go around explaining your @#$%& self to people. If you're too cocky, somebody might just pull out a @#$%& gun and cock it and blow your @#$%& face off. You gotta be really careful what you bite off. Don't bite off more than you can chew. It's a dangerous world."

“Of all the Things I've ever Lost, I miss my Mind the most."

"I push this one button and the shower goes on and I think, where the f*ck am I?"
