Geezer Butler website to launch soon!

One of the questions I get asked a lot on my site is about Geezer Butler’s website. Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, & Bill Ward all have their websites, and have for some time. However, Geezer hasn’t had one. If you went to there was a “Coming soon” page. That’s about to change. A few […]

The release date in the US/Canada is now May 10th. […]

Ozzy “Just Says No” to new Black Sabbath album?

Another entry in the “will they or won’t they” saga of the new Black Sabbath studio album was lodged today. In a billboard article that appeared today, Ozzy has re-signed with Epic records. However, in said article, Ozzy says this.. “I could go in the studio and write a bunch of stuff, but why do […]

Black Sabbath on iTunes

From time to time I get questions about the availability of Black Sabbath’s catalogue on legal music download sites. During my recent hiatus, I was informed that two more Black Sabbath albums have turned up on iTunes. The albums are Born Again & The Eternal Idol. Previous to this, all of the Dio era albums […]

Everything Comes & Goes Black Sabbath Tribute Due

I was sent this story, which recently appeared on’s news site.. *Black Sabbath* tributes by metal bands are a dime a dozen, so the newest disc of musical homages, /Everything Comes & Goes: A Tribute to Black Sabbath,/ is definitely a change of pace. Due April 5, the nine-track disc will feature reinventions of […]

If you look at the listed tour dates on Iron Maiden’s website, the last one they list is August 20th (Los Angeles). The seven […]

Dio Video Compilation DVD

I reported a few months ago about a DVD video compilation for Dio (the band). It’s going to cover all his music videos from Holy Diver up until he left Warner Bros records (which would cover up until Strange Highways). Anyway, this set now has a name, that being “Stand Up & Shout”, and it […]

I’m working on a huge update

Regular visitors to my site will notice I’ve been without updates for awhile. I’m finally over being sick, and I’ve started working on the backlog of stuff I have piled up. I’m also working on another “secret” project which I can’t announce yet. The update for this site will be ready in a day or […]

I’m still here. :)

Sorry for being so late with news updates and whatnot. For the last couple of weeks I’ve been terribly sick with an upper respritory infection. Then I had a bunch of personal things to do with my wife’s baby shower. And I had family in. I was out of work for over a week with […]
