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.
This Jacket is certainly one of the coolest historical Black Sabbath items ever ! The jacket was bought by Tony Iommi in 1969 and wore it out through Sabbath's early tours adding stickers and patches along the way.The Jacket was donated by Tony Iommi to Hard Rock and is currently in display at Hard Rock in Berlin,Germany.
