Garment featured in the original 1975 Black Sabbath ‘Sabotage Tour’ program by Martyn Dean. Also featured on the official Black Sabbath Instagram page.
Obtained from a relative of the band and in my private collection since 1980.
These were the jeans I’d always wear to gigs in Manchester in the mid/late 80s, and over time I added patches, bleach, safety pins, etc. Eventually, my mum complained about “the state of them!” and insisted I threw them out. I would go out wearing other jean,s with these jeans in a plastic bag, and would change into them on the train.
There are four Black Sabbath patches, one Led Zeppelin, and one Kerrang. I added the beer towel to cover a massive hole I accidenally created with the over-enthusiastic use of bleach.
