The end, eh? (aka Final Tour)

So, word has come down today about a “final tour” for Black Sabbath.   A thought about that…

Tony Martin Stuff

Those of you know who my website will know that I’ve never shied away from the full history of the band.  To that, I’ve always championed the Tony Martin era, which has largely been passed over by history, which is a shame.  However, there’s a lot more to Tony Martin than the handful of Black […]

Geezer Butler Arrested

Randy Rhoads Tribute CD

Caught news of this a few days ago, and realized I forgot to post it, so here I am.  There’s a Randy Rhoads tribute CD coming out next month, and it looks to be interesting.  It doesn’t have Zakk Wylde on it, which is a little bit of a surprise, but overall, I like the […]
