On Black Sabbath’s facebook page, they teased something that they have a huge announcement for, “11/11/11”, which is this coming, Friday. Yep, you guess it, everyone thinks they are going to confirm the Black Sabbath reunion of the original lineup with: Tony Iommi, Ozzy, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward.
Of course, I’m sure this reunion is being criticized by fans. Many are calling this reunion egotistical or they are just doing it for the money, but I disagree. Maybe they are coming back for a special reason, ’cause after all, Ronnie James Dio, just died, who was a former Black Sabbath member. Maybe they are coming back as in tribute to RJD? That could be a reason, to be fair for them.
I’m pretty sure they will confirm the reunion Friday too. I certainly would love to see them live ’cause Sabbath with Ozzy is one of my favorite bands of all times. When they do a full fledged tour, I’m sure they won’t come around Albany area. The closest you’ll probably get to see them is NYC, ’cause I’m sure they will want to play Madison Square Garden for a few nights.
Love ’em or hate ’em, you need to respect ’em. Sabbath invented the “Heavy metal” genre. Since RJD’s passing, the guys in Sabbath needs to do something, right? What else are they gonna do? They just want to keep playing.
I prefer Black Sabbath over Ozzy’s solo music anyway.
