Elliott P. Black Sabbath. The Vault
Fronted by irrepressible, idiosyncratic, and frequently death-defying singer Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath began its bumpy road to fame with a sound that rocked harder, deeper, and “uglier” than anybody else’s. Albums like Black Sabbath and Paranoid warped the sensibilities of several generations and are regarded as two of the finest rock records ever made. The years since their ascent have seen fights and reconciliations, crazy excess and bouts of self-destruction, but their popularity remains as vast and durable as their mythological status. Written by a leading music journalist and illustrated throughout with rare and previously unpublished photographs, Black Sabbath: The Vault is the ultimate interactive celebration of the iconic head-banging metal group. Twenty items of rare, removable facsimile memorabilia, including posters, tickets, flyers, and photographs, give the reader a front-row seat (and a backstage pass) to the career of these true legends of rock.
