Paranoid

Black Sabbath Tribute, Final Edition

This week paid in tribute to Black Sabbath has been a fulfilling one for me personally. My goal was to reach out to as many people as I could and have them join me in a celebration of the hallmark band of heavy metal. It is difficult to believe that four full decades have come and gone since the US release of the breakthrough album in Black Sabbath's legacy. "Paranoid" is and forever shall be a cornerstone of heavy metal's foundation, a critical piece in its history.

Black Sabbath Tribute, Part 2

There are a small handful of bands and artists that get mentioned as the greatest acts in rock and roll history, a sacred pantheon of untouchable musicians who have earned a reverence unlike any other kind of adulation in popular culture. They are icons, placed on a dais and worshipped with respect and deference that most bands or solo acts can barely feel a whisper of on their best day.

Black Sabbath Tribute, Part 1

It occurred to me just after the new year that 2011 marked the 40th anniversary of the release of the Black Sabbath album “Paranoid” in the United States. Naturally, when Black Sabbath comes to mind, it’s easy to get lost in their immense legacy, especially on the heels on another milestone anniversary. While “Black Sabbath” put Osbourne, Iommi, Butler and Ward on the map, it was “Paranoid” that cemented them as one of the most unique and powerful bands in the world.
