I remember on my many pilgramages to yaah dudes skate shops to pick up a set of screaming wheels or a new set of vans boot before hitting Birmingham wheels skate park Shane would be in the shop. It was a few years later I would recognise him again again thrashin the bass in the institute with Barney as nalpalm death. These guys are true legends. Never did find out if Barney did skate?
I made this artwork in 2011 celebrating Iommi's forthcoming autobiography book entitled 'Iron man : My Life with Black Sabbath & Beyond'. The artwork simply presents Iommi's through different eras and decades with Sabbath , he is shown in the early days with his famous Gibson 'Monkey' SG , while the later years shown with his Jaydee 'Old Boy' custom guitar. If a high quality resolution of this artwork needed to any 'Home of Metal' project I will be more than pleased to send it over.
I made this modified Heaven & Hell artwork specifically to be presented to the band as gifts during backstage at London's wembley arena on 10/11/2007 , I was solely taken after their show to Iommi's & Geezer's private bus to present them these framed artworks while Ronnie James Dio was later so overwhelmed with the sarcastic artwork backstage that I was told he kept telling everyone about it for a whole week after ! Ronnie couldn't help himself laughing at Iommi's smoking angel.
I honestly did not know in which category I should put this, but I wanted to share with you this model of a 3D mini room that I made using the cover of all Judas Priest albums in different ways. There are poster, mini records, the pillow and the cover of the bed of the room; I also made a model doll of me wearing a British Steel shirt. There is also a Ram it down wall watch, and many other things in the room. Hope you like it. I made it about 2 years ago. \m/
I created this artwork for Geezer Butler and had it printed out on a custom shirt as a special gift for my all time bass hero in Christmas 2011 , obviously everyone knows how Geezer tends to be one of Aston Villa's biggest cheering fans , I jokingly had Geezer quoted " If it wasn't for Tony , Bill and Ozzy , I would have named Black Sabbath the Aston Villians !" I added his Ampeg bass amp along with one of his new custom Yamaha bass guitars that I saw him use on Heaven & Hell's Ronnie James Dio tribute show at London's High Voltage festival on 24/07/2011. If a high quality resolution of this artwork needed to any 'Home of Metal' project I will be more than pleased to send it over.
