Saturday 4th February (today) is the last ever Black Sabbath gig.
Anyone who likes rock music will be mourning the end of Sabbath. A legendary and pioneering band. I have been fortunate enough to see them in the early days and with RJD. A great, great band. Great tracks. Great musicians/artists.

Hopefully not the end of seeing them with their own projects. Blizzard of Ozz resurrection?

Favourite tracks...?
Too many to mention, with the obvious Paranoid in the top somewhere. Bit a couple of my favourites are Changes an Symptom of the Universe. And with RJD there is Neon Knights and Heaven and Hell.
Always be yourself, unless you can be Aaron Rodgers....Then always be Aaron Rodgers.

    They don't.

  • Always kind of liked them until I bought Sabbath Bloody Sabbath on second-hand vinyl when I was at school. In the days of record fairs in the back rooms of pubs - very happy days. I had a Wishbone Ash obsession, but was drawn to this one. Might have been the naked women on the cover (succubi?).
    Fell in love with it and played it to death and was hooked on Sabbath from then.
    Favourite three tracks from Sabbath:
    War Pigs
    Never Say Die
    Killing Yourself To Live
    For my money, Bill Ward and Geezer Butler are the best rhythm section ever. Bill Ward in particular could get so much from what was a fairly small drum set.

    Shame they are gone as you say such a pioneering band as like Motorhead,went to see Black Sabbath at Leeds Arena last Thursday night,great night just spoilt by way to many drunken D-heads in the crowd only giving a censored about themselves,also saw them at Hyde Park in 2014 and they were absolute knockout,but so were the support bands at that gig Soulfly,Motorhead,Faith No More and Soundgarden,one of the better gigs I have been to,the start of the set the air raid sirens went off straight into War Pigs,I had a grin from ear to ear
  • Saw them in Portsmouth in 1972 - they were pretty bad, probably smashed out of their minds.

    Tony Iommi has said that they could do the odd gig, like at festivals. Ozzy has adamantly stated he wouldn't perform again as Black Sabbath as he wants to finish on a high.

    Most of his career was on a high wasn't it?
