Black Sabbath Autographs for sale.
Black Sabbath autographs. Originally formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi. Bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward. The band experienced multiple line-up changes, with Iommi being the only consistent member throughout its history. Originally formed as a blues rock band, the group soon adopted the Black Sabbath sound and began incorporating occult themes with horror-inspired lyrics and tuned-down guitars. They also composed songs about social instability, political corruption, and drugs.
Ozzy Osbourne’s regular use of alcohol and other drugs led to his sacking from the band in 1979. Replaced by former Rainbow singer Ronnie James Dio. Following two albums with Dio, Black Sabbath endured countless member changes in the 1980s and 1990s. That included singers Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen and Tony Martin, as well as several drummers and bassists. In 1992, Iommi and Butler rejoined Dio and drummer Vinny Appice to record an album. The original line-up reunited with Osbourne in 1997 and released a live album Reunion. Black Sabbath’s final studio album and 19th overall, 13 (2013), features all of the original members but Ward. A year after starting a farewell tour, the band played their final concert in their home city of Birmingham on 4 February 2017.
