I made this artwork for Geezer as his Christmas gift in 2010 , it was posted on his official website for a brief time along with one of his personal pictures cheering Aston Villa after The Carling cup final in 2010 and which Aston Villa lost to Manchester United 0-1. It jokingly has Geezer saying 'If It wasn't for booze, women and Black Sabbath, I would have been a player in Aston Villa.' !
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 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.
In this recently added oral history clip 35 year old metal fan Matt Clardige describes how his musical education started when he noticed that he was always drawn to the heavier tracks on the ”Now That’s What I Call Music…” compilations that his family often acquired during the festive season
