  • Why the SEVENTH Star

    how did Tony choose the number 7?

    the only thing I can think of is Glenn was Sabbath's 7th singer,

    1 - Ozzy Osbourne
    2 - Dave Walker
    3 - Ronnie Dio
    4 - Ian Gillian
    5 - Dave Donato
    6 - Jeff Fenholt
    7 - Glenn Hughes

    Sleeping here with you tonight
    And thatís for real"

    At that time Glenn wasnt in "Sabbath", so the vocalist thing doesnt really work. Plus I dont even know how you could include Fenholt.

    Maybe ask the man himself for Ask Tony 5.

            Maybe just because 7 is alleged to be a magic number (7 is the sum of 4 and 3, 4 being the number of the universe and 3 the number of the Holy Trinity). You find the number 7 in many legends and expressions, like the 7 gates of Hell, the 7 plagues of Egypt (the magnificent 7... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]). So when he had to find something that sounded mysterious for the song, I guess Tony thought of the "Seventh Star".

            Plus, it's really weird but when people are ask to give a number between 0 and 10 at random, most of the time they say 7.

                    I don't know. School, reading...

                    Here's another one for you : Have you ever wondered why the "number of the beast" is 666 ? Well, as I said, the 7 is seen as some kind of perfect number as it is the sum of 3 for the Holy Trinity and 4 which is the universe. So "6" is "7 minus 1", meaning it's "unperfect".

                    And when you repeat a thing three times, it's a way to affirm it and make it a whole, bring it to completion (like St John who had to swear three times that he refused Christ as his saviour before the sun rose).

                    This gives the 666 a meaning of completion in imperfection, meaning the person bearing this number as his sigil realises himself by not being perfect = being unlike God = the Devil.

                    It's always interesting to see how the meaning of numbers influenced religion.
