    There isn't really an official narrative, but it's documented that it was originally intended to be a solo album (even in the press in June of 1985 long before it was completed). I cover it in...

    Popoff's Doom Let Loose has a lot of historical information mostly through quotes from interviews, as does the Garry Sharpe-Young book Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath, but they aren't totally current (up to...

    That line is not from the book (which I wrote), but it is paraphrased in the Wikipedia entry. It says that although Ozzy says it's about schizophrenia, Bill said it was about greed or coveting and...

    I'll have to look into that. Geoff is indeed given writing credits on ASCAP for that song. A few times PRS is listed as his PRO, but sometimes it's listed as "no society," which is a shame because he...

    "Wicked World" and "Evil Woman" were recorded earlier. And, according to Martin Popoff’s Black Sabbath FAQ book, the tape with “Behind the Wall of Sleep,” “Black Sabbath,” “The Wizard” and “N.I.B.”...

    harmonica in 70s

    Has anyone heard why Sabbath didn't* play "The Wizard" live in the 70s and why Ozzy, for a while, stopped playing harmonica? Any interviews or anything? The only thing I've found so far is an...

    Got even more info, this from Martin Popoff's most recent book:
    “We did do a live album,” confirms Jezz. “I don’t know whatever happened to that. Just after that tour, we went to Holland, to a...

    I came across an article in Sounds from Jan 28, 1978 that came out of an interview probably conducted earlier that month. It mentions some reasons why it wasn't released. One, they weren't sure of...

    Thanks, Rollerjoint! Ozzy mentions it in an interview in March 1977, saying it "should be released September or October." A review of the St. Louis concert in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch mentions...

    Does anyone have (or know about) a Feb 12, 1977 concert in St. Louis (Kiel Auditorium) that Sabbath played and recorded with the intention of releasing a live album later that year?

    The Wall and McIver books have many errors, so it's best to stick with the Tangye/Wright, Sharpe-Young, and the Popoff books Doom Let Loose and FAQ. The Welch is pretty good, but old (1982). The...

    Interesting---Mike Exeter said that he told Vinny not to copy the programmed drums. Regardless of how that actually went down, the whole album was done to an unwavering click, and the drums sound...

    Tony's opinions of Bill's playing ability

    Many wonder why Bill hasn't played or recorded in Sabbath very much in the past 20 years. Contractual agreements aside, how often is it said that he might not be up-to-par with the others? Yes, Bill...
  17. Bill not co-writer for “Hot Line” and “Keep It Warm” ?

    Some versions of Born Again say “Hot Line” and “Keep It Warm” were written by Geezer, Ian, and Tony, and the other songs were written by Bill, Geezer, Ian, and Tony.

    Has anyone heard why Bill...
