Drummer Vinnie Appice burns his arse on dry ice in the big opening of the concert!
Built around Black Sabbath's 'Born Again' , here is another awesome Tony Iommi Jaydee custom guitar built by no other than Birmingham's guitar lutheir John Diggins , this guitar was used extensively in the 80's by Tony Iommi and more specifically on Black Sabbath albums such as Seventh Star, Headless Cross, Tyr and also Dehumanzier album in the early 90's , it was also used on stage during that time frame as well , the guitar could also bee seen on Sabbath music videos 'Trashed' and 'Zero the Hero'.The guitar is currently at Hard Rock Cafe San Diego.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Ronnie, Tony and Geezer several times and collected their autographs on my original vinyl copy of Heaven and Hell. I never met Bill but a friend’s uncle is Paul Clark who was Sabbath’s road manager in the early 80s .
This is a school picture of me and my brother from about 1984. Just visible is my Black Sabbath T-shirt and his AC/DC one. Though I was only 9 at the time I can clearly remember asking to be bought the T-shirts while we were on holiday in Blackpool, or was that Bridlington? At that time I don't think either of us particularly owned or listened to our own music and I'm pretty sure we didn't know who Sabbath or AC/DC were so the only explanation I have for wanting those shirts was because they looked cool! Mine had a picture of the grim reaper on the front and his a man being electrocuted. 26 years later though and I can honestly say I love Sabbath and can't think of a cooler picture of me as a kid...well there is that one of us in Scarborough standing with Darth Vader.
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.
