BLACK SABBATH WINS GRAMMY AWARD FOR IRON MAN

TONY MARTIN & CANCER

As you may have read below, Tony Martin had gone in to get himself checked out for cancer. It turns out he doesn’t have it, which is way cool news. Whether you like his tenure in Sabbath or not, he is associated with the band, and I’m sure everyone out there wishes him all the […]

THE OZZFEST MOVIE

In other amusing Grammy news, a song from the South Park movie was also nominated in another category (Blame Canda). From Joe: This text was taken from the Official Ozzy site. If you visit there, you can view clips of the trailer online. The Ozzfest is coming to a theater near you! That’s right, you […]

BLACK SABBATH NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY AWARD

This thing still holds up extremely well 30 years down the line – and kicks the shit out of most everything that’s been recorded since […]

NATIVITY IN BLACK II ARTWORK

No release date yet for this thing, but I’m still guessing Spring 2000. However, I did turn up something that a lot of you are really going to be interested in. I’ve dug up what is supposed to be the artwork for the album. Remember how the first one had pictures in the liner notes […]

WEB FORUMS COMING SOON

I’m going to be putting web forums on the site shortly. Here’s some text I sent out over the last two mailing lists that addresses this issue (didn’t feel like re-writing the text): Folks, I’ve been mulling this idea over for some time now, and wanted to throw it open for discussion. Getting right to […]
