    Bigsmile Black Sabbath the movie In speak of the devil ozzy remembers the old film..marice?

    what film was ozzy talking about? I don't know the answer.Thanks for the answer,it was the filmore east,i remember now,but not the filmore,i was more than shit faced.I thought it was a porno and he had to drain his lizard.Speak of the devil,dont remember the Alamo either.lol does anyone know how Ozzy developed his singing?I heard he would rent an apt. with the band and sit and talk to lots of people at the pubs and listen to how they sound and find the most hypnotizing tones,and he thought he was drinking blood with werewolves on acid.Must have been drunk at the Slaughtered Lamb Pub.for years i thought Living in a room without any view and the man in the moon were supernaut and hole in the sky lyrics.hole in the sky i thought was about an eclipse or blackhole,or blacking out and losing your mind.Live in Paris had a spotlight that blinded Ozzy and Bill.

    That's right. But I've always heard that last line as:

    "Where we used to get shit-face number nine here a few groupies, huh?"

    I've listened to it a dozen times on YouTube and that's still what I hear.

    Iconosphere has it right. I grew up w/ this record. Seemed like Brad Gillis cheated on the record. I hear a lot of notes being played and not many chords. Amirite? Anyway, Icon, tell me about living w/ Ozzy. Who all did you get to meet, did you attend jams/rehearsals/ would Zakk come over and shred/what rare memorabillia does Ozzy have? Tell us everything! ~Chris

    Bloody el, we'd be here all night. lol. But, to answer your first question, obviously I met the whole family (Ozzy, Sharon, Aimee, Kelly & Jack). And Tony Dennis lived there too. And my girlfriend at the time, Diane, who was the kids' nanny.
    This is where they were living at the time >>> http://g.co/maps/5zqdp

    Who else did I meet while I was there?
    Ozzy and Tony (Dennis) took me to the rehearsal studio. With little Jack too. Who would have been 6 yrs old at the time. So I was keeping my eye on him. So yeah, I met Zakk, Mike Inez, John Sinclair, and Randy Castillo who was late (as usual apparently). I can remember Zakk just fuckin about on his guitar and blowing me away. He was just doodling about. It's one of my regrets that I didn't ask for a go. Or a jam. If it had been now, I would have done. Silly me for not taking the opportunity. You have to understand I was in this bubble and didn't realise what I was in. If you see what I mean.
    There's 3 things I remember coming back from there. I can remember coming back in the back of the car, and we drove past Bel Air. And Ozzy pointed out to me that that was where they'd spent time during Vol4.
    Secondly, I remember him asking to get out of the car to take a piss down some alleyway. Which would have been a nice sight for someone walking through. Hahaha.
    Thirdly, I remember Paranoid coming on the radio and pulling up at some traffic lights. And the person in the next lane doing a double take as he recognised him. Heh heh. The fact that Paranoid came on the radio was very surreal. You couldn't dream of this happening, nevermind actually happening. lol.

    I also met Lemmy while I was there. Diane took me to The Rainbow Bar which is where he always hangs out. Diane always picked the phone up when he rang Ozzy's house. But had never actually met him before. Until then.

    I also got taken to Paul DiAnno's place. Don't ask me where in LA this was, I wouldn't have a clue. But I think he was a friend of a friend of Diane's. I remember going outside for a cigarette and hearing a gunshot from somewhere in the vicinity. I errrrr... proceded to bang on the door to let me back in very quickly. lol.

    Apparently, Chris Cornell came to the house at one point with his then wife. But alas, I didn't meet em. I was a big Soundgarden fan at the time too.

    It's funny that we're talking about Speak Of The Devil. Cos I have Ozzy's actual copy of it on CD. And also his copy of Diary Of A Madman. I'm sure he has more though. Heh. But yeah, he gave me his copies of those cos they just happened to be sitting by the shelf of CD's. Shame I can't prove it. But hey, fuck it. He had a limited collection of CD's there at that house as they were only renting it for a while. I remember him mentioning his collection that he had at his house in England. And said I should see it sometime. But, I never did get to.

    Sooooo, that's a small percentage of my time there.

    Icon: good times! I'm jelous! Did you get to meet Iommi, Ward or Butler? Would Zakk or others try to get Ozzy to jam to Sabbath (non touring songs i.e. Paranoid, COTG) ? I got a stick from Randy and a pic from Zakk but Ozzy wouldn't shake my hand. I swear I was at the first concert he ever played DOAM, I got chills. I wonder if Zakk talked him into that b/c it's such a guitar driven song. The intro started and I thought it was a teaser or a medley jam but they played the whole song. ~Chris

    At that time (1992) Sabbath had been 'unpopular' for a few years. I do remember having a conversation with Ozzy about Sabbath's influence. I bought up the subject of bands such as Corrosion Of Conformity and Cathedral, of whom Sabbath had had a massive influence. Basically, in my head, I was trying to push him towards the Sabbath thing again. And for a long time after those '92 shows, I felt i'd had an influence on bringing the original line-up back together briefly. Most probably unfounded of course. heh. But who knows.
    One of my favourite and best memories, that will live with me for the rest of life, is when I heard him put on some Sabbath in the kitchen. It was the first time I'd sat with him alone. I realise now that he'd put it on to get me out of my room as I'd been too shy to come out for 2 days. lol. But there I was listening to Master Of Reality, etc. Him talking about the songs to me. The CD set 'Black Sabbath - The Ozzy Osbourne Years' had just come out. He told me that he reckoned they'd remixed it or remastered it or something cos he could tell they'd put the vocals up in the mix. I put it to him that maybe it was cos it was on CD (CD's still relatively new at the time), and he sort of had a go at me (in a nice way) that he knew what he was talking about. The vocals were clearer. Nothing to do with the 'quality' of these new fangled CD things.

    As for DOAM, funnily enough I had a conversation with him about that too. I remember sitting down with him at the dining table. As it was/is my favourite Ozzy solo song, I asked him if they'd ever perform it live. I think at that point, the reason it hadn't been done was cos of the string arrangements and the complications of performing such a song. To be honest, it's only in the past year that I realised he HAD performed it. Found out via youtube. Although correct me if I'm wrong, it was when Joe Holmes was in the band.

    As for meeting the rest of Sabbath, I ended up backstage at a gig in 1990. It was either Leicester or Wolverhampton. Can't remember which cos I went to both gigs. And I remember standing there waiting for the band to come in. In the mirror, I saw Iommi's reflection. Fucking shit myself. Couldn't say hello or anything. It was like I froze. lol. I can remember Cozy Powell fuckin about in the background. But I did get to chat to Geoff Nicholls outside the room. He was the reason I got backstage. His son played in a band with the guy I went to the gig with. They had some two piece rock act going at the time. I can remember seeing Tony Martin by himself. I felt sorry for him cos it looked like no-one was interested in talking to him. lol. Of course, this could have just been that moment I caught him standing there.

    A soundbite on Ozzy's Boneyard, Ozzy said it was Lemmy that convinced him to play DOAM live. I'll double check my stub, but I'm 99% sure it was w/ Zakk, but I've been to so many shows and could have been knocked over w/ a feather during and after that song.


    I was excited to get the BS Ozzy years box set then upset b/c it didn't contain the instrumentals. But I still listened the hell out of it.

    I'm saddened every time i have to explain that something was a joke...

    But for that matter, the state Ozzy was in at the time i wouldn't doubt he'd be able to remember things that was yet to come... (That was yet another joke)

    Not at all. I was aware of what you meant. I just added my bit to it just in case it confused others. Of which tends to be quite easily done sometimes.

    When you're writing a post, there's a bunch of buttons on top, like fonts, bold, italic, underline and all that shit. There is a button that kinda looks like a little picture (next to the one that looks like a film-reel). When you click on that, a little window pops up where you can write (or copy/paste) the URL of the pic. Same goes for film-clips if you click on the filmreel-button..

    Cute pic though

    OK-don't have a URL, just did it on my desktop. I guess I could have saved it to fb then to here, too much work. Want to upload a pic from desktop. There's an advanced option that allows me to do it but the pic never shows up b/c I don't know what I'm doing

    Come to think about your pic Chris. Groupies getting shitfaced fits very well with the topic in general. (i didn't read the words the first time, was too mesmerized by the pic )

    Fuckin el, this is getting rather bizzarre !!

    That picture http://www.black-sabbath.com/vb/atta...9&d=1337018818, it mentions that the music is by 'The Magic Lanterns'. A group formed in 1962. Now go click on the wiki link BELOW and read it for yourself. It's the second paragraph that you need to read. Bizzarre to say the least.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Magic_Lanterns

    It also mentions it would be 3 quid to get in in 1969. THREE QUID !! My dad's weekly wage in 1970 was 12 quid. Bloody el. Heh

    and bassist "Oz" Osborne would spend several decades fighting the mistaken impression that Ozzy Osbourne had actually played in his early career with the Lanterns.
    That IS really strange...

    Also, Ozzy used to play bass in the American Psychedelic Satanist-band Coven:

    LOL Definitely Filmore East, no question.

    But I remember when the album came out, my buddy asks me, "Who's Phil Maurice? Ozzy talks about him on Speak Of The Devil..." LOL I suppose I'd have thought the same if I wasn't already familiar w the venue. By and large, people under 40 weren't alive when it was still around.

    All the best,

    Thanks god I was not the only one who have been curious what he was talking about...over 20 years.
    English is not my mother tongue. I heard like 'Does anyone who remember the merist?', because the next song was Wizard.
