My Eyes Are Blind, But I Can See
In case you missed the big, official announcement on Friday, National Metal Day, we have the link for you here, direct from Black Sabbath.com.
The original lineup of Ozzy, Tony, Geezer and Bill are getting back together to do their first studio album and tour in 33 years. Whilst I am intrigued by this I am saddened that probably the main reason this is going to happen, at least now, is due to the death of Ronnie James Dio last year.
Let's see, I saw Ozzy on his "Bark At The Moon" tour back in '84 (?) and I also saw Black Sabbath on their "Born Again" tour with Ian Gillan about the same time. And of course I saw the Heaven and Hell lineup when they came through here in '07. So no, I've never seen them together. I did have the opportunity to see them back in '98 when they did that short tour but I had just started a new job and they absolutely would not let me go that night, and I tried everything to get out of it.
I guess I better get ready to see them when they come around, these cats ain't getting any younger. Road trip Heff?
