I had forgotten Ozzy went blonde for a while.

Props to The Gauntlet for catching this: That site is worth a read, if only for the black metal comic and the video pieces. But, yes, the original lineup of Black Sabbath have reunited; we called this one back in February.
That’s Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi, and Bill Ward — who has long said he’d never again take part in such a reunion. Yes, that Black Sabbath has officially reformed and begun rehearsing for an upcoming reunion tour and possible studio album, the site says.

This is huge news, but at the same time, it’s sad news, as it reminds me that Heaven and Hell probably would’ve continued had Ronnie James Dio not passed away. What did those guys have left to do? More solo albums no one cares about? They had no choice but to get back together with Ozzy.

According to Metaltalk.net, Osbourne, Iommi, Butler and Ward came to a decision two weeks ago to go ahead with the reunion, and this morning (August 15), the group convened in a secret rehearsal studio to begin working on a live set — and what will hopefully be a new album.

I didn't really bother with Heaven and Hell, do people think these guys have it in them to write an album that doesn't suck?

From Tony Iommi
Tony Iommi Comments on Today's Posts:

I’m saddened that a Birmingham journalist whom I trusted has chosen this point in time to take a conversation we had back in June and make it sound like we spoke yesterday about a Sabbath reunion.

Thanks to the internet it’s now gone round the world as some sort of “official” statement on my part, absolute nonsense. I hope he’s enjoyed his moment of glory, he won’t have another

I caught Heaven and Hell aka Black Sabbath w/Dio when they first reunited a few years ago and it was a surprisingly good show. The 3 new songs they did for the "Best Of Dio" cd and the later full H&H album were pretty mediocre though.

Regarding Ozzy, I think between his aging buffoonery and his cunt of a wife Sharon, it's kind of amazing that Tony Iommi and the rest of the original band would want to go through all that hassle again at this point in their career. In fact, it now sounds like is was not fully worked out yet as Iommi just released a statement saying he had a casual, private conversation with a writer about getting back with Ozzy. The writer sat on the info for several months and for whatever reason went public with it this week, pissing Iommi off.

(edit - and there's that statement from Iommi above!)

Considering he's her meal ticket, of course she's "kept him alive." What's she going to do if Ozzy left her or died, manage Billy Corgan (oh, wait, that already happened... for a couple days). She's also pushed him repeatedly back on the road long after he's clearly had enough of touring. I won't even go into shit like Sharon having Ozzy's then-current bassist and drummer re-recording tracks on Ozzy's first two classic solo albums just to cheat the original musicians out of money among other things.

Agreed. Who's the "talent". Ozzy and Black Sabbath? Or Sharon Osbourne?

Pretty good docu on early Heavy metal if you have a spare hour.

I couldn't care less about Sharon Osbourne. I just can't believe after all of the discussion about how that's a word I'd prefer remain off the forums...

I REALLY don't want to be a forum nazi, but I'd really like to see this board devoid of racist, sexist, homophobic stuff.

You gotta be fuckin' kidding me.

"Cunt" is neither a racist or homophobic slur and in some countries like the UK, depending on it's use, it's hardly even a sexist/gender specific slur.

"Cunt" Noun.
1. The female genitals.
2. Women from a sexual viewpoint. Offensive.
3. A despicable person. Derog. and coarse, and with its associated meanings is consequently particularly offensive (Sharon Osbourne).
4. A very familiar term of address. E.g."Hello you old cunt, how are you? You're looking well."
5. A difficult thing or task. E.g."I'm not offering to help him move house, he's got a piano and it'll be a cunt of a job to shift it."
Exclam. An exclamation of anger, surprise, frustration, disappointment.

No. I'm not kidding. Many women are highly offended by it. Maybe it's a midwest thing, but on the scale of offensive words it ranks up there with "faggot" and "nigger" with women, two other words I don't see serving much of a purpose here.
2. Women from a sexual viewpoint. Offensive.

Using "the C word" never ends well. At least not on Jane's Addiction forums.
