Soo, Black Sabbath were the beginnings of doom and sludge. Every other metal/doom band is the bastard child of Black Sabbath as they were invented to scare the hippies. I don't like Ozzy Osbournes solo material with out the late Rhandy Rhodes, and Sharon Osbourne sounds like a cunt to me with the whole Iron Maiden controversy on OZZFEST last summer.... Black Sabbath preffered to not pander to the industry and some populist notion of industry favoritism. I respect that...
That's ok, all you great dudes in Black Sabbath, you are in the rock and roll hall of fame anway, my salutes for being a major influence and inspiration.
The good news from SMNEWS.COM. Black Sabbath - Finally Inducted Into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, After 8 Nominations posted on 11-28-2005 @ 8:37 AM
Heavy metal godfathers, BLACK SABBATH will finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (after being nominated eight times) during the institution's 21st annual ceremony on March 13th in New York City. Other bands being inducted during the ceremony include the SEX PISTOLS and LYNYRD SKYNYRD.
In 1999, SABBATH frontman OZZY OSBOURNE sent the Hall a letter which sums up the Hall's importance:
"Just take our name off the list. Save the ink. Forget about us. The nomination is meaningless, because it's not voted on by the fans. It's voted on by the supposed elite for the industry and the media, who've never bought an album or concert ticket in their lives, so their vote is irrelevant to me. Let's face it, BLACK SABBATH has never been media darlings. We're a people's band and that suits us just fine."
