If you're a fan of Black Sabbath, you'll certainly know some of the stories of the band's history (though we suspect some of them will remain untold forever!). Apart from their line-up changes (guitarist Tony Iommi is the band's only constant member) and drug escapades (most infamously those of Ozzy Osbourne), Black Sabbath are famous for helping to define the heavy metal genre, making them one of the most important bands of all time. Their self-titled debut album (available from EMP on CD and vinyl) got a lot of attention, shocking the British population, with the follow-up Paranoid (CD | vinyl) also causing considerable alarm. The band members each dealt with the success in his own way. In 1979, Ozzy Osbourne quit Black Sabbath due to massive drug problems. After successful rehab, he committed himself to his solo career.
