I remember it like it was yesterday… He was our generation’s Jimi Hendrix. A little guy with monster guitar skills. He is still influencing guitarists all over the world 33 years later…R.I.P. Randy

A super bad ass rocking song but Ozzy is awful as usual…:( It’s Black Sabbath Karaoke..I am glad Ozzy isn’t reading children’s books…He is even “singing” monotone…sad, sad,sad,sad,sad,sad,sad,sad….

Black Sabbath American tour dates

If you like gambling here is a safe bet. Go see Black Sabbath somewhere on their North American Tour. The dates are listed below.

The safe bet is this. Ozzy will prolly bail on some of the shows due to “his voice”. Remember the Ozzfestivals? I was at one of teh several that he bailed on. Safe bet number 2. Literally # 2. Ozzy will have a row full of floor teleprompters in front of him and he will read off the lyrics to the songs he can’t remember and the band will have to pace themselves and follow his timing to keep him in the grove….It’s heavy metal karaoke with canned vocals..

Tony Iommi is dealing with cancer and has to go home every few weeks to deal with treatment. Many props to him for sticking it out despite his sickness and is “on deck”. Ozzy however, is way past cooked or whatever he is and is a puppet of his younger self. Sad to say. Black Sabbath are legends. If Ozzy had taken better care of himself it would the show of shows to see…

Geezer is holding down the fort and Bill Ward isn’t there.

Here are the dates so far and no Evansville in there….

So what do you think? Sorry it’s an IHeart radio streaming file so they have audio marked it with “IHeart Radio” sound bite every few minutes….Toni Iommi has the standard killer riff..

uh, not feeling it…I am so over Ozzy at this point anyway. Probably safe to say his vocals are probably pieced together and have to be synched up with the music anyway at this point in his life.I will give Toni Iommi props for the riff though. For a guy that has two finger tops missing off his chord hand he has given birth to some badass guitar riffs over the years. No Bill Ward anywhere to be found and internet is calling it Sharon’s Black Sabbath..lol
