    Headphones-Wearing Pedestrian Loudly Proclaims Iron Man Status

    "MINNEAPOLIS—Local resident James Gaines loudly proclaimed his Iron Man status Monday while walking down Hennepin Avenue wearing a Sony Discman. "I am Iron Man," Gaines announced in a deep, foreboding voice before launching into his dark, personal tale of madness and revenge. Gaines has previously declared himself "hot for teacher," "a teenage lobotomy," and "a street-walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm.'"

    Greatest band ever? Not sure about that, but I will give you they were the beginning of metal, as far as my drug addled adolescent memory can remember. Like Zepplin, I was a huge fan of Sabbath for the first 4 albums. After that we grew apart. Seems odd that so many bands start out so strong but by the 3rd or forth album the flame that made them so good fades out.
    The greatest bands were strong from start to finish. IMO the Beatles, the Dead, Frank Zappa and the Mothers, are bands I think were great from start to finish and that put out a bunch of albums. I am sure there are a few more, but those three stand out in my mind.

    I must have missed where this came into the conversation... He puts on one of the BEST shows I've ever seen... simply amazing. Helps that I've been pretty in to his music north of 20 years now. Was bummed that they are doing Fiddlers as opposed to Red Rocks this year.

    I'd say they're first 6 albums are solid. Technical Ecstasy was meh...and Never Say Die was good. There is no Sabbath after Ozzy, so I'm calling it: 7 of 8 and strong from start to finish.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I can (and still do) queue up TE and NSD and enjoy them as much as any other album. True, the production sucks (lack of bass end) and the songs a more standard template rock format, but they still rock. They were trying to get radio airplay to compete in the market. That and way too much coke.

    The Dio years ruled high school. Saw them with Dio twice. Loved those albums. My yearbook quote was "The world is full of kings and queens who blind your eyes and steal your dreams".

    Then Dio left and everyone was bummed. Born Again came out with little interest for most, but I absolutely loved it. Saw that tour and Ian Gillan blew away Dio in terms of range, screams, and just pure evilness. Still gives me chills. Incredibly loud wall of guitar sound too.

    I lost interest in every album afterwards. I bought Seventh Star hoping for something great, and it pretty much sucked. I don't think I ever listened to any of the later albums all the way through. The Geezer solo albums were much more interesting, as well as the Iommi/Hughes collaboration Fused, which was great.

    I did not know Ian Gillan sang for Sabbath. Loved that guy with Deep Purple. Now I need to do a You Tube search.

    Friend just saw Dweezil in Nelson a few weeks ago. Said it was a great show. Don’t think any sabbath was played though

    BS never did much for me. Never a hook in anything they did that i can find.

    Seems dungeon & Dragon-ey

    Suppose somma Ozzy's solo stuff is aite. at least it had a hook.

    Personally, I don't like Iron Man, but dammit if these aren't two of the greatest songs ever!!!




    Add in:
    Hand of Doom, Electric Funeral, Paranoid....had there ever been a better two album combo in such a short period???

    All hail the Band of Darkness!!!!
