Music Groups - Black Sabbath

Black Sabbath are an English rock band. Formed in Birmingham in 1968 by Ozzy Osbourne (lead vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), 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 releasing multiple gold and platinum records in the 1970s. They have sold over fifteen million records in the United States alone. As one of the first and most influential heavy metal bands of all time, Black Sabbath helped define the genre with releases such as 1970's quadruple-platinum Paranoid. Black Sabbath were ranked number one on MTV's Greatest Metal Bands countdown. Ozzy Osbourne was fired from the band in 1979, and while initially replaced by former Rainbow vocalist Ronnie James Dio, Black Sabbath would see a revolving lineup in the 1980s and 1990s that included vocalists Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen and Tony Martin. The original lineup reunited with Osbourne in 1997 and released a live album, Reunion, which spawned the Grammy Award-winning single "Iron Man" in 2000, thirty years after the song's initial release on the album Paranoid. The early 1980s line-up featuring Iommi, Butler, Dio, and Vinny Appice reformed in 2006 under the moniker Heaven and Hell, a title taken from the 1980 Black Sabbath song and album of the same name. In February 2009, Heaven and Hell announced that they are recording a new album, The Devil You Know, with a release date of April 28, 2009

1 Only Ozzy here. Dio's post-Sabbath stuff is OK, but I prefer the Ozzy era. After a while, Dio's screachy voice grates on me. That's one thing Ozzy didn't have. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 4:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

3 Soggy and I should have a listening party- Sabotage was the last of the good Ozzy era albums. Heaven and Hell un-boned the band, but 1976 was a good Boning point for the Ozzy Era of Black Sabbath. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 6, 2011, 8:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Who voted "Day 1", dammit? Who would dare vote "Day 1"? Not even Pat Boone would vote "Day 1"! Not even Perry Frigging Como would vote "Day 1"! Not even Sinatra would vo - well, okay, so Sinatra might. Personally, I never jumped on the Dio bandwagon; even Heaven and Hell didn't do much for me. (I know it's a blasphemous thing to admit, but there it is.) But Ozzy's last two albums sucked ass too. Basically Sabotage was the last album that impressed me, so I guess that means I have to give the Bone Date as about 1976. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 12:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Only Ozzy with Sabbath and Dio with Sabbath matter and are also all that ever gets played live. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 7:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 If you look at it at the time, it was a smart move to get rid of Ozzy, as it was one of his worse times with the drinking and drugs. Of course, it helped Sharon someone snap up Ozzy into good enough shape to launch his 2nd life with his own band, and while Ozzy was flying high again, Black Sabbath stumbled. Probably, thinking about it all, Sabbath was going to stumble at some point, be it all the boozing and drugs, especially from Ozzy, or just time taking its toll -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on November 23, 2010, 3:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Even though Ozzy left and that made Black Sabbath not Black Sabbath, I think Ronny James Dio did a fair enough job with "Heaven and Hell", the renamed band. -- Submitted By: (Zingsters) on November 22, 2010, 1:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 This was one of the greatest rock bands of the 70s Paranoid was excellent. Ozzy really could sing before he got burned out. Check it out on you tube you young musicians out there. I bet you will like it. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 12, 2010, 12:20 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I think that "Heaven and Hell" and "Mob Rules" might be some of the best Sabbath. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on July 19, 2009, 9:38 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
