    Well, it's not the article I remember reading a while ago, but Plant pretty much echoes his opinion in this one: http://www.rockradio.co.uk/rock-news...bath/cbf62myd/

    He sounds pretty bitter, huh. "But speaking on Canadian radio Plant suggests that Sabbath are no more relevant than the man who sang the tearjerking hit Honey." I think just about every self-respecting heavy metal fan out there would have to disagree with you on that one, Planty.

    favorite songs to jam with them was supernaut-war pigs,i asked if it was ever recorded
    he was sure it was'nt and that john bonham played with them on a few occasions.
    he also mentioned to me that geezer and robert also had got together and
    recorded a few things together ,but nothing ever came out of it.
    those are two-bootlegs i kill to hear!!!!!!
    I read somewhere (can't remember where) that Geezer and Percy were planning on recording an album together sometime back in the 70s. I didn't realize that they actually recorded material together. Odd, since I've read hundreds of interviews with both Geezer and Plant and I've never heard either of them mentioning it.

    I wonder if the recordings were bare boned demos or if they were fully developed songs. If so, who played drums and guitar?

    I also remember reading a Circuis Mag. article when Dio Sabbath played in England durring the H&H tour, Plant and Page showed up back stage before the show, the article cited Plant doing most of the talking, and Page "simply sitting there, quiet just smiling the whole time".

Plant said that he and one or two other guys from Zep (Bonham, probably) saw a Sabbath show during the '70s and their impression was that their music was rather dull or boring. I tried Googling this article but found nothing. Would like to read it again...
    Yeah I remember that article, it was in either Mojo or Uncut. He's got a f*ckin cheek though, MOBY DICK that's all I'm going to say. Oh and HOBBSTWEEDLE as well.

    The only comment I've heard about Sabbath from Jimmy is from an interview taken backstage after one of the Chicago 75 gigs. The interviewer asks Jimmy's opinion on several bands, one of them Sabbath, and Jimmy remarks that he's not familiar with their music.

    Back in the 70s, Jimmy seemed pretty isolated from a lot of the music scene. I remember reading some Page interview in the early/mid 80s where he said that he was recently turned on to Rush and Van Halen, both of whom he hadn't heard of before!

    I just have ended reading the latest biography of LZ written by Mick Wall.

    He confirm all the info that is in this thread by interviewing Bill Ward, and a interesting remark was how Bill knows about the death of Bonham, via his drug dealer at the time and he said: "i'll next John i'll follow you..."

    Fortunately for us he didn't follow...

    Okay.

    For those who don't know, West Bromwich is just 5 miles from Birmingham and Redditch 15 miles.

    Regarding those "Black Zeppelin" sessions, I remember Tony Iommi speaking of a tape he might have somewhere at his place with a recording of Sabbath jamming with Plant and Bonham in the early 70s, but he didn't know where it was. Now, the question is : does this tape exist or did Tony only think they recorded it (it was a long time ago) ? and, if it does exist, can I hear it, please ???
