Black Sabbath - British Rock and Roll - the best live music in London

Black Sabbath was a British heavy metal band formed in Birmingham in 1968. The band's original lineup consisted of Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, Tony Iommi on guitar, Geezer Butler on bass, and Bill Ward on drums.

Black Sabbath is considered to be one of the pioneering bands of heavy metal music. The band's dark, heavy sound and occult-inspired lyrics set them apart from their contemporaries and established them as one of the most influential bands in the genre.

Black Sabbath released their eponymous debut album in 1970, which is considered a classic of the heavy metal genre. The album includes the hit songs "Iron Man" and "Paranoid," both of which have become metal anthems.

Over the next several years, Black Sabbath released a string of successful albums, including "Master of Reality" (1971), "Black Sabbath Vol. 4" (1972), and "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" (1973). In 1975, the band released "Sabotage," which is considered by many to be one of their best albums.

In 1979, Ozzy Osbourne left Black Sabbath to pursue a solo career. He was replaced by former Rainbow vocalist Ronnie James Dio, and the band continued to release albums and tour throughout the 1980s.

After several lineup changes, Black Sabbath officially disbanded in 2017. However, the band's influence on the heavy metal genre cannot be denied, and their music continues to be celebrated by fans around the world.
