Adam Wakeman on Keyboards for Sabbath’s 2005 Live Dates

Overnight I got an email from Adam Wakeman who handled keyboard duties (what that they were) on the Ozzfest 2004 gigs. Adam told me that he will be handling keyboards again for Black Sabbath during their 2005 live dates. I was curious about this, as keyboards have mostly been hidden – the keyboardist in Black […]

Putting them together with the already known dates, that makes the 2005 tour itinerary this: Jun. 09 – Dortmund, GER […]

Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, & Anthrax on US Ozzfest 2005

A news story posted this afternoon over at blabbermouth says that Ozzfest 2005 will hit the US with Black Sabbath & Iron Maiden headlining. Along with that will be a “classic” version (read not the current version) of Anthrax. While it’s really cool we have Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden on Ozzfest, I’m a little […]


Ozzy’s Prince of Darkness Update

This morning, I received word of some changes to the track listing for Ozzy’s forthcoming “Prince of Darkness” 4 CD set due on March 22nd. There’s been some tracks added, and a few removed.

There’s no cover art available yet, but Geezer’s people tell me that […]
