Black Sabbath - Lebanon Valley Speedway, NY (80) http://www.black-sabbath.com/tourdates/1980/index.html

when RJD stepped onstage, a HUGE lump of disappointment hit the pit of my stomach. there was alot of booing when he took the stage. his voice just did nothing for me. he also looked hideous, it was really apparent how short he was on the stilts they made him to reach the microphone at normal height. his hair was also really frizzy, and the black leather just made him look gay. he was technically proficient but just couldn't sing any of the classics. fans got entertained, yes. but left extremely disappointed at the change in singers. it was the buzz topic of discussion as we left the show. also, the burning cross resulted in the trampling death of several concert attendees, I believe 4 in total lost their lives that day. 3 trampled, 1 in a car started on fire. i sat on my cousins' and his friends' shoulders the entire concert because i literally was lifted off the ground several times from the crowd moving.

I followed the link you posted on the official Black Sabbath tour dates list - got confused - it says it was in Pennsylvania but other sources say it was new york.  (?)  also did a little research and tried to find stories of people being trampled to death or set on fire at any Sabbath shows, although one story I found said someone was run over by a car and he was ok.  got any links to news archives on that?  you would think that kind of thing would be easy to find . . and  - PAY ATTENTION!  NOT DOUBTING YOU!  JUST TRYING TO FIND MORE INFORMATION . . .

I did find another link to an audio recording of a Black Sabbat show riot in Milwaukee Oct 9, 1980 - cool/scary

NOBODY died at that show I assure you....it was actually in Pennsylvania...not NY state.
It was called the Albany NY show on the ticket much as when Ozzfest plays Camden it says Philadelphia in the information.
Anyway...there was NOBODY in a car on fire..it was a car that was rolled over into a gulley by some kids tripping having great American fun..simply setting a car on fire for shits and giggles...nobody was toasted up into a crispy hideous unrecognizable carbon remnant of thier past human self...it was just a harmless concert prank...you know...kind of some mirth and merriment just to harmlessly pass the time while that shitty frizzy haired DIO played one of his Sabbath gigs.. All kids do that.......burn stuff up when that shitty frizzy haired DIO comes out to play. Yeah...it happens all the time. Roll Eyes
And nobody died at the concert either...NO trampling deaths happened...there were UNRELATED motor vehicle accidents not at the concert.
That would mean if on the way to a show hours before it started in PA a car travelling at 110 MPH while the driver was on LSD and the nagging backseat driver was on mescaline grabbing at the wheel...and that car careened into a gullley bursting into a hideous raging inferno with all twisted metal and guts on the highway...that would be a concert death?? I find that hard to believe....I think SOMEONE...you know who....needs to get a fucking grip.

Oh i was just mentioning bands that should play on the second stage in no particular order, but the stage really should be closed by Necrophagist because it would be very hard to play after them.

And yes, it would be an awesome Ozzfest from start to finish, and would appeal to most (if not all) metal heads, hopefully Sharon will see this post and get to work on making it happen! ha
Dont consider the second stage as less....it`s a pretty big feather in the Ozzcap to headline second stage...thats some heavy weight to pull. Better to headline second stage than open main I say...... Cool
Ozzfest 2011 will be one helluva party no matter who plays. Some things I would care for would be Black Sabbath, a reunited White Zombie, and some hybrid reunited bands... Like maybe Zakk with Ozzy and Zakk with the survivors of Pantera.( they should do it for the music,...and Dimes memory...not to be Pantera)
(reunited would be a running theme though)

I saw them for the first time ever last week as they were support for Metallica.
Never listened to them before
Their vocals reminded me of Venom but they looked like a bunch of old surfer dudes in their long shorts and sneakers
They grew up without mothers.....

MM...Nahhhhh..He`s one of the best members of this community,..you may be here because you have no other board to be a pain in the fixture on,....but LDD1 is the man when it comes to being a respected part of this gang. You are virtually an unwanted intruder that contributes nothing but "anonymous" (so you think) pointless lame jabs that a child would just look at in a sad sympathetic light,..then walk away and laugh at your predicament.
What is your issue?? He gets the respect you never will?
Get a new act man,..come up with a new gig,..this one is LAME.::finger::finger::finger::finger

wtf......liveDD respected?::animatedlaugh.......you must be a clone!::finger

Noooooooo,.......... Its me I assure you::animatedlaugh This statement was not made for "LiveDD" ...it was made to counter the lame ass stalker that was hounding LowDownDirty 1 even when he was at the FUCKING OZZFEST(with you) The guy just never gives up. Anyway LDD1 is the abrev. I use for Lowdowndirty1`s screen-name...(see? now you`re making me type that shit all the way out!::animatedlaugh) Go ahead and check with my pal LDD1.::looking I have a certain and particular level of respect for LiveDD/DDevil though...I am able to separate or revisit various issues from all the different boards and move on or rehash axes to grind,..its the net.
There is a lot of shit that happens here that is done by people and we dont always know who they are.
How do I know you are you?Huh::surprise::animatedlaugh::animatedlaugh::animatedlaugh::confused::c_stare
Generally you will find me smartmouthing trash talking shit-stirrers,..and sticking up for the decent regulars.
But thats just me..............................................

ZAKTAR:  Here is the play by play........

1. EKoerner jokingly tells me in his last posted words that I "must be a clone"......then I say NOOOOO It`s me (FOF)
He more than likely said that as i stated i have a respect for LiveDD and that made him jovially doubt me..so I righted him. (what is the mystery here dude?)

2.Can you cut `n paste this elaborate database you claim to have where the words actually say that?.....no,...you cant,....so...WRONG! You are WRONG SIR!! Good day to you!

3. Where are you interpreting this from?....what fucking planet?....please let me know so i can beam over there and set you right......I mean ..give it a rest. BTW I am not trying to be mean you just open these topics up and run.....you gotta be set right son!! MmmmmHmmmmm! Whoooo Wheeeeee!! Take a ride on my OZZFEST son!! Cheesy

So Says The Mighty MIDDLE_FINGER.....Whatever! (ie; Don't Admit It & You Won't Get Blamed!)

Yup...like I TRIED to tell ya`z...BEATLES-ESQUE Wink

It`s about as Beatles-esque as it can get:

Metal icon Ozzy Osbourne has covered a John Lennon track as part of an Amnesty International project.

The Beatles left their mark in some unusual places. Typically hailed as an influence by retro rockers such as Oasis, the Fab Four have also been saluted by heavy rock icons such as Lemmy.

Now metal star Ozzy Osbourne is due to cover John Lennon on what would have been the singer's 70th birthday. The one time Black Sabbath frontman has decided to tackle 'How?' as part of an Amnesty International project.

A campaign set up to honour John Lennon, the charity released a compilation in 2007 featuring a raft of stars covering the late Beatle. 'Instant Karma' featured contributions from U2, Green Day and more with Ozzy Osbourne the latest to take part.

Receiving permission from Yoko Ono, the metal icon has recorded a melancholy version of 'How?'. Set to be released later this year, the singer has filmed an accompanying video which sees Osbourne pay tribute to the singer.

Filmed in New York, Ozzy Osbourne is seen dressed in black, walking through the streets to Central Park. The singer is seen stopping by the Lennon memorial, placing flowers at the word 'Imagine'.

Speaking to the BBC, the one time Black Sabbath singer revealed a lingering respect for the achievements of John Lennon. Naming the songwriter a "driving force for humanity" Osbourne went on to recall the moment he heard Lennon had been shot.

"The world stopped for me," he explained. "I can't even describe how I felt. But the amount of joy and hope that he gave people was just remarkable."

John Lennon would be celebrating his 70th birthday this Saturday (October 9th). The singer's life will be remembered in ceremonies around the world, with his wife Yoko Ono set to lead the tributes in Iceland

75  Forum / Band Interviews / ZAKK WYLDE interview not by FOF but by some dude...... on: September 24, 2010, 07:38:00 pm

Entertainment Music
Wylde rolls with the punches


Zakk Wylde is still riding the crazy train. And loving it.

Over the past year, the 43-year-old singer-guitarist has faced enough personal and professional upsets to send anyone off the rails. But if you think it's got him bummed, you don't know Zakk.

"The best is when people get all concerned and go, 'Aw, it's been a rough year for Zakk -- he's not playing with Ozzy Osbourne anymore, he got these blood clots and had to give up drinking, his father passed away,' " explains the burly, bearded metalhead from his Southern California compound. "And I just go, 'Yeah ... and?'

"That's just a normal day for me, dude. That's what my life is like. I mean, I died three times. I had three pulmonary embolisms. People say, 'Oh my God, you must be such an emotional wreck. Do you look at life differently now?' Um, no. That kind of thing is reserved for dudes that are complete d-----bags."

Besides, it's not as if Wylde -- born Jeffrey Wielandt in Bayonne, N.J. -- is just hanging around the house polishing his bullseye guitars. His solo band Black Label Society just released its 10th CD Order of the Black. He's barnstorming Canada on the Berzerkus Tour with Clutch and Children of Bodom. And like Ozzy and Sharon -- aka "Boss" and "Mom" -- he's expanded beyond music, dabbling in everything from hot sauce to Hollywood screenwriting. Here's what the hilariously foulmouthed rocker thinks about Ozzy, sobriety and his odds of winning a Nobel Peace Prize.

How do you stay so positive?

It's all how you look at it, bro. When somebody says, 'Aw dude, there's only half a beer left,' I say, 'Hey, there's still half a beer! If we drink it real fast, we might still cop a buzz.' And like I've always said, the colours of Black Label Society are black and white. Nobody cares about the gray stuff. If we've got a gig, they don't care if I went to the liquor store to get some beer for the guys and got shot at, or if I got a flat tire on the way to the show, or if Joe's girlfriend Susan gave birth in the back of the tour bus. All people care about is that we get onstage and put on an asskicking gig.

Was it tough to quit drinking? It seems to have been a big part of your image.

People ask if I'm on a 12-step program. No. I have a one-step program: I'm done, dude. I mean, I still go to bars. I hang out with my buddies and watch Monday Night Football at Hooters. I just drink the fake stuff. After all, what am I supposed to do for the rest of my life? Stay home? Everyone I hang with gets hammered out of their minds. So many of my friends say, 'I couldn't quit.' But after I had the blood clots, the doctor told me that if I went out berzerking with the guys and was throwing down like nobody's business, I'd literally start bleeding out of every orifice -- my mouth, my nose, my ass, my eyes, my d---. It would be a tsunami of blood, dude. And I'd be dead. Right there. I'd be leaving Hooters on a f---ing gurney, dude. So it was easy to quit after that. And my friends just say, 'We lost a drinking partner -- but we gained a designated driver. Come pick us up, jackass.'

Ozzy said your drinking was part of the reason you parted company. Is that true?

Well, he was also saying for a couple of years that he wanted to change things up. So I don't know. And whatever reason it was -- my drinking, my beard, my weightlifting -- I still love Ozzy. He can't do any wrong in my eyes. When I do interviews, people want me to say something bad about the Boss. But without him, there'd be no Zakk Wylde. There'd be no Black Label. I wouldn't have my own brand of coffee and hot sauces and beef jerky. These wouldn't be any Doom Crew pubs, which is this new sports-bar venture I'm working on. I wouldn't be starting my own record label. I wouldn't be writing the Black Label Guitar Bible or this coffee table book I'm writing or the movie script I'm working on. I wouldn't have my Black Label Bunker or my studio. I wouldn't have any of that without him. So yeah, I really hate the guy. (Laughs)

You're obviously a disciplined, ambitious, smart guy. Is Zakk the loudmouthed, drunken biker dude really you or just a character?

Uh, well, I don't know. I mean, I don't take myself seriously. If you do that, you're only setting yourself up for a really long fall, man. I mean, I take the music seriously in terms of practising my ass off and wanting the albums to sound good and wanting to put on a good performance. But everything else, man, it's just Spinal Tap all the time.

It seems to be working for you.

Well, Black Label is my whole life. Literally everything revolves around it. It's bigger than a band. It's bigger than me, which is beautiful. Because that's the way it was designed. I always thought it would be really cool to have a club and bring people together. When I was a kid, some of my buddies were Deadheads. If they met some other wearing tie-dye, they knew he was into the Dead too. Now, if you see somebody else wearing Black Label colours, you have a connection.

If Ozzy called you up, would you go back?

Gus G. is the guy now, man. And he's playing his ass off, dude. But if he sprained his wrist in a bizarre whackathon mishap -- and I've had several of those injuries myself -- and Ozzy asked me to fill in for a couple of weeks, I'd say yeah.

Do you have any goals?

I want to break Axl Rose's Chinese Democracy record. It took him what, 14 years? I plan on going away for 20 years. That's because I went away for four years and won a Golden God award. So I figure if I go away for 20 years, I'll win a Nobel Peace Prize. The sad part is, I spend the majority of my nights thinking about this stuff. That's pathetic.
