    There's not always a lot of correlation between what cd inserts say and the truth!

    Ain't that the truth - talk about who plays what on Eternal Idol. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

      Cross Purposes insert says that Iommi/Butler/Martin wrote the lyrics.

      Yep! In fact, I think Seventh Star is one of the only Black Sabbath albums whose writing credits weren't equally given to everybody who played on the album (or were at least confirmed as official members at the time of the writing). The first 8 albums all say "All songs written by Butler/Iommi/Osbourne/Ward." Think the four of them co-wrote the music and lyrics of each and every single song together? Yeah right! Ditto for Heaven and Hell's "Butler/Dio/Iommi/Ward" credit. Geezer didn't come in until almost all of the album had ever been written.

        Also, weren't there a few albums whose writing credit was "Black Sabbath"?

        I know even when they are listed, they sometimes are a lie. Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon has the first song "Breathe" credited to Nick Mason (drummer). Over the years Mason and Waters said it was really Waters who wrote it, but the credit was given to Mason so he could get a writing credit.

          I just remember how odd I thought that was, cause Dehumanizer was more of an album I thought was up Geezer's alley as far as subject matter. It's also kind of a departure from Ronnie's traditional lyrics.

          I read a Geezer interview where he stated the Dehumanizer concept was his. Ronnie went with it.

          I believ Dio mentions in the Never Say Die book that the band asked him to stay away from typical Dio themes.
