    Here's a few pics of my old band Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, the first ones are pretty blurry, someone didn't know how to use a 35mm camera :) The other ones I took at a large club in CT. just after sound check.

    We did Heaven and Hell and Neon Knights and the rest were older, one of my favorites was Juniors Eyes for some reason.

    I love those CD's. I think it would be fairly easy to get a singer that can do Ozzy but a RJD is a different matter.

    Plus I think Geezer played some of his most killer riffs on those 2 CD's. :kickass:

    I liked the newer stuff but we got more requests for classics so we spent more time learning those. I liked Fairies Wear Boots and Warpigs, Geezer did some cool progressive grooves. I wanted to play Lonely Is The Word but we never got around to it. When we had our first singer he couldn't do Dio so I sang it while he took a break :) our second singer did Ozzy and Dio well.

    You are absolutley right on that one spideyjg. I love Ozzy and everything but IMO, RJD is a much better vocalist. Heaven and Hell is my all-time favorite Sabbath album. The Dio/Sab stuff seems a lot more complex to me (like you said about Geezer), which I love.

    Heaven and Hell is one of my top ten albums of all time. And thats no joke about you having Tommy Aldridge hair, either! Yowza!

    Many times, it's not easy, but the vocals flow well with the bassline. If the bass goes against the grain of the singing too much then I can't do it. We're doing some Pink Floyd right now and I'm having some trouble with Money.

    Children Of The Grave? We used a 20 second audio bit from the movie Black Sabbath as our intro.
