Sabbath Crosses

Back in late July, Blackstar Productions in Argentina sent me a copy of their Black Sabbath tribute CD called “Sabbath Crosses”. I haven’t had a chance to give it a proper listen until now (for that Fernando, I’m sorry). I shouldn’t have waited so long, it’s a wonderful CD! I’m here with a track by […]

Tony Iommi & Jethro Tull

Back in 1969 befre Sabbath released their first album, Tony Iommi was briefly in Jethro Tull.

Tony Iommi’s Daughter

Something that’s always come up over the years is questions of the various Sab member’s offspring. Ozzy’s are rather well known, but the other guys are more secretive. I know of Bill Ward’s kids, but at the request of Bill, I don’t talk about them. Tony Iommi has also been pretty secretive. He mentioned in […]
