    Black Sabbath/Ozzy Osbourne/Heaven and Hell

    Post  That Guy on Fri Feb 26, 2010 10:48 am

    Black Sabbath are an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968 by Tony Iommi (guitar), Ozzy Osbourne (lead vocals), Terry "Geezer" Butler (bass), and Bill Ward (drums and percussion). The band has since experienced multiple lineup changes, with a total of twenty-two former members. Originally formed as a heavy blues-rock band named Earth, the band began incorporating occult- and horror-inspired lyrics with tuned-down guitars, changing their name to Black Sabbath and achieving multiple platinum records in the 1970s. Despite an association with occult and horror themes, Black Sabbath also composed songs dealing with social and political issues such as drugs and war.

    As one of the first and most influential heavy metal bands of all time, Black Sabbath helped define the genre with releases such as quadruple-platinum Paranoid, released in 1970. They were ranked by MTV as the "Greatest Metal Band" of all time, and placed second in VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" list, behind Led Zeppelin. They have sold over 15 million records in the United States alone. Rolling Stone has posited the band as 'the heavy-metal kings of the '70s'.

    Vocalist Ozzy Osbourne's drinking led to his firing from the band in 1979. He was replaced by former Rainbow vocalist Ronnie James Dio. After a few albums with Dio's vocals and his songwriting collaborations, Black Sabbath endured a revolving lineup in the 1980s and 1990s that included vocalists Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen and Tony Martin. In 1992, Iommi and Butler rejoined Dio and drummer Vinny Appice to record Dehumanizer. The original lineup reunited with Osbourne in 1997 and released a live album, Reunion. The early/mid 1980s line-up featuring Iommi, Butler, Dio, and Appice reformed in 2006 under the title, Heaven & Hell.

    They made hit songs like War Pigs, Iron Man, and Paranoid with Ozzy. Hit songs like Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules with Dio.

    Ozzy's Solo Career led him songs like Crazy Train, Mr Crowley, and Black Rain.


    Aside from them being the First true metal band and my main inspiration for music, they also are my second favorite band of all time.

    Crazy Train.....
    Randy Rhodes rest in peace.

    He was the guitarist for Crazy Train but he died in a plane related accident shortly thereafter so in a way, Crazy Train is dedicated to him.

    I prefer Ozzy back in the old days with Black Sabbath. His newer albums... well they aren't the same. Kinda hard to have the classic 80s feel.. without being in the 80s. BS was one of the first bands I listened to, but never really clicked with it, until I hit my teen years.

    You had to have listened to some. Even today, I am hearing songs I heard when I was a kid, and saying "OMG! THAT'S WHO DID THAT SONG!"

    This band makes Led Zeppelin look like a bunch of preschoolers. Of course they aren't as innovated as Plant and Page, but they kick ass 5x harder and with a 90% accuracy. Ozzy's early years makes me laugh. He wasn't always that crazy. XD;
