Customer Reviews

This book was a complete history of Black Sabbath5
For any hard-core fan of Black Sabbath as I am this book offered many unheard of insights of how the band met, and gave personal information about each members contribution to Black Sabbath. During the Book drummer Bill Ward inlightins us on the personal side of the band and speaks very clearly on the down-fall of Sabbth during the post-Osbourne years. Rosen captures the in-depth interviews during Sabbaths creation of Heavy Metal music, and gives the reader emotional experiences of each member in Sabbath. From the outrageous hotel bashings to Ozzys personal side of the Sabbath break-up, Rosen allows the reader hear the story that answers the burning question that many new Black Sabbath fans want, and need to read. Rosen offers valuable information for the Ozzy Osbourne fan. He interviews Ozzys past, and present guitar players, and lets them speak on their experiences on the "crazy train." Steven Rosen has given me a front row seat in the "real play" of the Sabbath story. His "never say die" approach to interviews gave me the insight of the "hard road" Black Sabbath had indured to be able to convey In your face music with real life experiences, and still be accepted by the masses

Lacking2
This book is a poor record of Black Sabbath's history. It lacks details and anecdotes and the writing is bland. The author didn't do very much research - there are not very many people quoted in the book. It relies way too heavily on information provided by Bill Ward, who was on drugs for most the 1970s. How reliable of a source is he? Maybe that explains the lack of details.
