    Born in Aston, Birmingham England and often cited as the pioneers and the godfathers of heavy metal music, Black Sabbath was founded in 1968 by Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Ozzy Osbourne, and Bill Ward.Defining the main foundations of the genre with groundbreaking timeless classic releases such as Black Sabbath (1970), Paranoid (1970), Master of Reality (1971), Vol 4 (1972) , Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973) and Sabotage (1975), Black Sabbath inspired millions of fans and musicians around the globe paving the path for many artists and bands that came after them.With over 100 million records sold worldwide, the iconic group was ranked by MTV as the "Greatest Metal Band" of all time and listed by Rolling Stone magazine among the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time." They were honored with many accolades through the years including multiple Grammy awards and inductions into the prestigious UK Music Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

      Cheers! Going Through Changes is cool although I think the band should put a proper dense photography book similar to Led Zeppelin's recent release! I've also just finished reading Martin Popoff's new Sabbath book 'Black Sabbath In the Seventies' , excellent read as usual.

        That would be cool IRON-MaN, thanks for the heads up on the new Sabbath Book by Martin Popoff, will have to check it out.

          IRON-MaN I tried looking this new Martin Popoff book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble and can’t find it, do you have a link?

          Thank you I appreciate it.

                I saw something about this on Facebook and read the linked story. It is just sensational news!

                Nice work! You were interviewed quite extensively in the write-up I saw on Birmingham News. Great to have a Sabbath "superfan" (as you were deservedly called) pushing for this kind of thing. Sabbath's music is this important and the years are ticking away. No better time to get this kind of thing accomplished than now!

                  Thank you! I've been working hard on this ever Geezer's 'Walk Of Stars' induction back in February, had a full presentation done for Westside BID to propose and present to the board and city council, thanks to the massive efforts by Mike Olley (director of Westside BID) we were able to get all approvals needed and have this Press Release finally out. I had more progressive ideas but had to stick to a more practical and economical development (not to mention something that would actually get approved by the council), the band definitely deserves much more than this but lets say its a great step ahead, I'm sure the success of this project will be quite an eye opener for all those indifferent about the city's extremely rich music culture and the massive potential it holds from a pure touristic and business prospects.

                  The project have been viewed and approved by all band members and they're quite thrilled about it to say the least! right now we're coordinating with the 4 originals to set a date for the unveiling of the project (hopefully sometime early 2019), so Sabbath fans better buckle up, this will probably be the very last time we see all original 4 reunited and celebrated at their home town in Birmingham , England (their first in the UK since 2005!).

                          Thank you sir! Its shaping really well now, all detailed drawings for the 'metal bench' have been finalized and it should be going to full production very soon ,I'm also currently coordinating with the city engineers to shake things up on the bridge to enhance the best visual experience possible for both fans and tourists, we're looking for an early date in 2019 but its yet to be confirmed as soon as we hear back from all original 4 band managements! fingers crossed this goes exactly as planned!
