3937Re: Who here likes Sabbath?
- Jul 11, 2005I only saw "Sabbath" with Dio singing (not bad) or Ian Gillan (not
good) and Ozzy in the 80's. Ozzy was drunk, stoned and the last
time...on Prozac. I never thought the original Sabbath was
so "Sabbath". Ozzy was "in" the band and they were all excellent. I
stayed like "wow" when I saw Bill Ward doing War Pigs. It wasn't my
favorite Sabbath song, but now they're all my faves...They started
with Paranoid but I thought that I was bored to hear that song
(radio, cover bands, partys)...I am not!! I think that Anvil,
Exciter, Razor played at the Haunted House. Not sure.

> I'm a huge, huge fan of Sabbath. They and Ozzy were my bread and
this boot as well and my favorite from it is "Behind The Wall Of
Sleep" - a lesser-known number from the first album but one I really
like because it never ever got performed all that much. I think if I
remember right War Pigs has some alternate lyrics to it, too. Quite
possibly the best video boot of Sabbath from the 70s that exists.
There was one of Sabbath in Toronto circa 1972 that I've heard exists
and in fact I've seen snippets of - from an outdoor festival of some
sort and the quality is really grainy. Wish I could remember
more 'cuz I would love to see it.
