Black Sabbath - The End of the End

Postby Booney » Fri Sep 29, 2017 10:20 am

Went to West Lakes last night to watch "The End of the End - Black Sabbath" movie with footage from the bands last ever show in Birmingham and interviews with Tony, Ozzy and Geezer.

Geezer Butler really is the driving force of the band, quietly spoken but musically gifted he's been the main lyric writer for years working on a higher plane than most humans do alongside Tony Iommi, they both describe their relationship as more than just friends could ever be, it's a spiritual connection, something that can't be repeated with anyone else. Butler is also a mad Aston Villa fan, when asked what is his first true love "Villa or Sabbath?" he hesitates not, "Villa".

Iommi is the riff master, he's created some of the most memorable riffs in rock history, Paranoid, Iron Man, War Pigs, Dirty Women to name just a few. How in rocks name he has the "feel" that he does for his guitar when the finger tips on his right hand were lost in a sheet metal accident and replaced by some wax/plastic tips is amazing. Some of the close up footage of his work has to be seen to be believed.

Ozzy, hilarious in some parts of the interview, claims to be no good at singing but was born to be a front man. He's 100% correct. He's got one thing he'd like to fix, jet lag. Although when laying in a pool of his own urine in a hotel room he always thought "jet lag" was a good reason for being in such a state.

It's well worth the 2 and a bit hours of your life if you've got one metal bone in your body.

Sabbath bloody sabbath.

Almost five decades ago, the toll of a bell and rolling thunder marked the conception of an ear splittingly monolithic riff. In that moment, BLACK SABBATH and the sound of heavy metal were forged. The band embarked on what vocalist Ozzy Osbourne describes as the most incredible adventure you could think of, a journey that would go on to define a genre.

"The End" is a celebration of BLACK SABBATH's final hometown concert at Birmingham's Genting Arena on February 4, 2017. This unforgettable farewell show from one of the biggest bands in the world will be released by Eagle Vision on November 17, 2017.

With a hit-packed set list including "Iron Man", "Paranoid", "War Pigs" and many more, the high production values, visual effects, and pyrotechnics wowed fans, as the band delivered the most emotionally charged show in their history.

All visual formats feature special bonus material of the band playing a selection of their favorite songs not played on tour. These intimate live sessions at Angelic Studios were recorded in the days after their final live performance. ... o-footage/
