NEW IOMMI – WITH PHIL ANSELMO?

Was sent a short tidbit overnight about a possible new album from Tony Iommi. Check it out (story originated here): It appears as if PANTERA/DOWN/SUPERJOINT RITUAL frontman Phil Anselmo will be heading to England in January to record a full length album with TONY IOMMI. This is the first I’ve heard of anything new from […]

MORE ON PAST LIVES

Got a bunch of feedback on Past Lives over the weekend. I would have updated sooner, but I was sick most of the weekend (and Monday). Anyway, it appears that it’s available for pre-order from both Amazon & CDnow at the moment. Both Amazon & CDNow have two price points for the disc – what […]

It also claims the release date is August 20th, which I also cannot confirm. If it’s true though, it means […]

SHARON OSBOURNE & CANCER II

As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, the cancer that has afflicted Sharon was colon cancer, and from news reports out this week, it’s spread elsewhere in her body.

LIVE IN 75 GETS NEW NAME

Got a quick news story that folks will be interested to hear. The "Live in 75" double live Black Sabbath album has a new name. Actually, it’s more accurate to say that it has a real name, as "Live in 75" was just a working title. The name of the album is now PAST LIVES. […]

SHARON OSBOURNE & CANCER

Saw this story come across the wire today, and thought I’d pass it on. It originally appeared online here. Sharon Osbourne, the take-no-prisoners matriarch who effortlessly deals with her rebellious kids and a zoned-out husband on MTV’s The Osbournes, is in for her toughest challenge yet: cancer. Sharon, the wife and manager of metal pioneer-turned […]

BILL WARD AUDIO INTERVIEW

Over the weekend, Bill Ward appeared on a call in show in Los Angeles. It was an outstandingly good interview, with Bill talking about a wide range of topics, from John Entwistle, to Cozy Powell, to what it’s like being on tour with Sabbath, and some of Bill’s favorite music to listen to. The entire […]
