    They could call the album "Beyond 13" for a start . But in the grand scheme of all Sabbath scenarios , the new band taking on Bill's songs is the most unlikely.

    All bands were ripped off in those days, maybe with the exception of Zeppelin, the Stones and the Who.

    Yes Tony almost always plugged into the bass input of his Laney Supergroup amps, this is well known. He started down tuning to Eb in 1970 already when playing live, dropped to D later on, then for...

    I've always understood as a song about the devil and the existence of a different or parallel reality.

    It's a bit 'Sabbath by numbers' but it's not terrible. Just something harking back more to the lesser songs on the last 2 Ozzy albums.

    This is a rehash of discussions if ever I've seen one. Come on guys it's not 2012 anymore - or 2013. We'd all love to have Bill, chances are slim, he's not the drummer he was, he's bloody minded,...

    The tone Iommi produced in the early 70s was a modified Rangemaster into a Laney Supergroup. It's well documented that the Paranoid solo was a studio effect - a ring modulator - applied on one of the...

    While "Under the Sun" is a magnificent piece, "Wheels of Confusion" is one of the best songs ever written by Sabbath. The Straightener part is just the icing on the cake..... Sabbath sound gloriously...

    Wow, great interview, by a pro. That drumming was as characteristic as might be expected.

    Tony is a big Frank Sinatra and Hank Marvin fan too. What's the big deal? Tom Jones was great with Jeff Beck a few years ago on a side project.

    Would love this to be Geezer (hi Geez!). But Terence would never spell out "Sabbath Bloddy Sabbath".

    Very nice story again. I think Tony mentioned it was annoying on the day itself but the band covered him afterwards saying, 'that's just Ozzy being Ozzy', or something to that effect. It was mostly...

    Completely agree that the whole "we'll be back" comment is part of a planned campaign, including the earlier "Hyde park may be our last gig".

    By all means Rick Rubin's team may be up to mischief...

    If I remember correctly the Sabotage concept was to back to the rawness of the first albums, less experimentation like on Vol4 and less concept sounding than SBS. They wanted to show that Sabbath was...

    I am happy for her she got to meet her hero. But yes she was definitely obsessive and her Iommi postings were often immature and absurd, bordering on teenage fanatic behavior...

    Sounds like an 'unsignable contract' to me. Bill would never agree. Besides, I wonder if push came to shove, if Bill were really keen on playing the 13 songs live.

    (Although he did play Anno Mundi...

    Agree with the comments about Tony getting no respect in the 80s - remember the 'can you do tapping' questions in magazines. Cringeworthy.

    Must say that I really really respected Joe Holmes, both...

    On the guitar gear topic: NSD was mostly recorded using Iommi's standard Laney Supergroups. The main reason for the trebly sound is a) the studio b) Tony wanting to sound like the more current bands....

    It's a very bleak album, which is maybe how some people would like to hear this band. But to me it lacks dynamics and has a 'too much of everything' production style that starts to annoy me after a...
