    Default Favorite Sabbath Member

    I was watching something about The Beatles and it was talking about how alot of people's favorite beatle is John Lennon. It made me kinda think of which Sabbath member was my favorite.

    My favorite is probably Bill Ward because we have alot of things in common.What's your guy's favorite?

    Being a guitar player it would be Tony. I had heard Led Zeppelin, Iron Butterfly, Steppenwolf, etc. But I wasn't inspired to pick up the guitar until I heard Black Sabbath and Tonys guitar work on those songs.

    Probably one of the Tony's. But I love almost every Sab and former Sab.

    Tony Iommi. He is determined, conquered a problem that most people would have gave up, created his own musical style, is left handed (me too) and seems to be a nice chap.

    Only differences are that my fingers are harmless and i'm much poorer than he is. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    And all the others Sabs are references to me. Cool guys.

    BLACK SABBATH FOREVER!

    Tony Iommi. Him playing N.I.B changed my life because it introduced me to rock and metal music. Even though i forget about him sometimes, he started everything for me, listening to music, playing music, and loving music.

    Tony Iommi - so obviously that I almost wish this topic was titled "Favourite Sabbath Member apart from Tony Iommi". [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
    Second place, a tie between Geoff and Tony M.

    Tony Iommi

    it was, after all, him who introduced me to what i now consider my life, that being rock n roll (with hard rock/heave metal as subgenres but you get what i mean)

    LONG LIVE THE SABS!!!

    Definately Tony. His doomy sound and lower tunings are what inspire alot of things I come up with by myself on my guitar. As well as my own style of course.

    Geezer Butler.

    I'm a bassist myself and Geezer's a huge influence on me, and I also admire him for making the music he wants to make without worrying about record sales or any particular audience. He could easily cash in by making a solo album in the Sabbath vein, but he'd rather make music which he likes himself.

    Do you want to encourage the Sabb Four to release a studio, demo, or official live version of "Scary Dreams" (the thus far unreleased song they debuted/performed live during their 2001 Ozzfest tour)? If so, consider becoming a fan of Scary Dreams on facebook by clicking the below link:

    Probably Bill Ward for the above mentioned reasons, or Geoff Nicholls for his loyalty and commitment to Sabbath for over 20 years.

    Tony Iommy is Sabbath, and Sabbath can exist without any of the other members, but not without him. Of course he is my favourite.
    But... you know... Ozzy is THE voice. He was my favourite, until he went on the TV show.
    And Geezer, I dont know why, it seems to me hes a really cool guy, maybe the kind of guy to be your best friend, hang around, drink some beers...
    Then Bill, another cool guy.
    And honour mention to Tony Martin and Geoff Nicholls, my favourite members from the 80s and 90s era.

    For me it's suprisingly Iommi, for reasons mentioned above!

    hmmm damn a hard one hey, i reckon all of the originals....

    Tony Iommi - Just cause of how bloody influential that guy is, and how humble/modest he is, other guitarists are like hey man im a god!, while he is just like, yeah i did that.....

    Geezer- seems to be a person that u could speak about everything and anything, from music to current affairs, all while having a drink at an english pub, watching aston villa kick some arse!!

    Bill Ward - Dont kno about him, just everything about him just seems so awesome, very modest, and like geezer, u could talk to him about anything....

    Ozzy - Well, just cause he did what he said he would do, get his family out of financial trouble, and in the end, he did.... and inspires others to do soo

    Yeah, I have a soft spot for Ozzy for the same reason.
    I couldn't help but smile when I heard that with his first royalties he bought a case of beer, some cologne and then gave whatever was left to his mother. I even heard that he bought her a new house.

    In all honesty, all the guys in Sabbath seem like good, kind guys who aren't too into the RNR lifestyle which is a large part of their appeal to me and others.

    Tony Iommi, for his determination.....35 or so years and
    you talk with people about Rock or Metal and You see the
    Cross and you hear the Riffs and you think of Tony stood
    stock still dressed in black playing so carefully and thoughtfully and still sending audiences over the top with
    the music...now that is ROCK AND ROLL ...sometimes I listen
    to Sabbath, as I have done for 2 decades.. hear that familiar sound..and tears of joy spread across my eyes.....
    this music is so special...and I'm so proud to love it...
    and thanks to Tony's detemination it still lives, still sells records........amazing!!!

    Are we talking about the same Ozzy? The Ozzy who took out the life from Sabbath when he rejoined the band? Because of whom it has been 11 years since the last studio album? He is your favourite person in the band?

    True true. I am also a bassist and Geezer Butler is amazing. His Bassically (bass solo at the beginning of N.I.B.) really did it for me. I don't know why Geezer doesn't write some of his stuff he wrote for Sabbath in the early years. He should try it out see how it sells. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Yes he is, he`s always been and probably will be [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I don`t have a problem that there hasn`t been an album for so long. Nothing will change my feelings about him. "Took out the life from Sabbath when he rejoined the band" ? I don`t know what you mean.

    I sense a good space for people like myself and Racer to say what we're thinking of that. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] But, this has been told and re-told countless times...

    Simple put, we just got a different view on that. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
