Happy Birthday to Tony Martin (Apr 19). A singer that won't be forgotten around these parts. Bring on 2017 and that collaboration with Tony Iommi!

We have some news about where those four extra tracks from 13 are cropping up. They're going to be on a CD called "The End", which will be sold ONLY AT THE SHOWS on the 2016 tour. Posted some of the details on my site this afternoon. Check it out.

I wrote a bit tonight about the Cozy Powell ceremony, and the rather tantalizing comment made afterwards by Tony Martin saying that he and Tony Iommi could be working together again soon!

Due to overwhelming demand, the road to THE END just got longer.
On the heels of their much-anticipated performances in North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, BLACK SABBATH will end the epic journey they began nearly five decades ago with another run of North American dates in fall 2016. These shows will follow a mix of summer headlining and festival performances throughout Europe.

The second run of North American dates kicks off August 17 at Jones Beach Amphitheater in New York and includes stops at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (where the band last performed a sold-out show on their wildly successful 13 world tour in 2014), Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, Detroit, and Dallas, among others, before wrapping September 21 at AK-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ.
The massive 2016 world tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time marks THE END for Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler as they close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible BLACK SABBATH story with this tour. BLACK SABBATH’s THE END farewell tour promises to surpass all previous tours and will feature the band’s most mesmerizing production ever.

When this tour concludes, it will truly be THE END, THE END of one of most legendary bands in Rock ’n Roll history...BLACK SABBATH

Today (June 20th) is the 20th anniversary of the Forbidden album's release in the United States/North America. I've done up one of my usual retrospective articles for it. Link is below.

However, I need to take a moment and thank Neil Murray. Neil helped me out a ton with a million questions about dates, and facts, and "Did the recording studio look like that"... He also provided me with the behind the scenes snaps during the writing part of the album's creation. So thanks to Neil, who is ALWAYS generous with his time. Couldn't have done this without him.

Anyway, check out the piece here:

I posted a few thoughts on Tony Iommi's cancer update that came out in a news article on the Mirror website earlier today. Go check out what I had to say, as well as the interview itself, of course.
