Black Sabbath were the first and the greatest heavy metal band. Their exciting brand of hard rock and their hell-raising behaviour have made them legends. Now this rollicking story of life on the road with Black Sabbath will have their fans rocking ...with laughter. David Tangye and Graham Wright were in the crew during the seventies, the band's heyday, and have the stories to prove it. For the first time they cover in detail the early days of the group, from life on the road in a small Transit van to a certain gig in the Scottish borders where they were almost beaten up by the local farmers. As the Sabs rose to fame and notoriety, touring Europe, Australia and America, delighting fans and disgusting law-abiding members of the public, incidents of bad behaviour stack up alarmingly. Whether it's Geezer's lyrical journeys into the underworld, Tony Iommi's practical jokes (often at Bill Ward's expense) or Ozzy Osbourne at home in Atrocity Cottage, this is Sabbath as you've never seen them before. Full of new information, How Black Was Our Sabbath is a real Spinal Tap story, a warm, funny tribute to four mates from Birmingham who became the biggest heavy rock band in the world.
