See you at Copenhell, again, in 2018.

Today is the day. Black Sabbath is calling it quits. After 48 years and thousands of shows, tonight, in Birmingham, England–where it all began–is where it will all end. I was fortunate to have seen Ozzy solo twice (once in the 80s and once in the 90s), Dio solo in the 1980s, and Black Sabbath three times (90s, 00s, and on The End Tour last summer in Denmark).

Happy Halloween!

At the last minute, Black Sabbath said “no” to pit photography. Initially I was a bit pissed, but it worked out for the best as I got a great spot, nearly dead center in front of the mixing booth so everything sounded perfect. In addition, the crowd around me was great. Had I shot from the pit for the first three songs, I probably would have had a horrible location for the rest.

What a fine show it was! My final time seeing Black Sabbath live, after seeing Ozzy (and Dio) solo in the 80s and Black Sabbath in the 90s and 00s.

Four months from today…

32 years ago (3/28/84 to be exact) I saw Ozzy Osbourne live for the first time. I was 15 years old. I was too young to drive. I walked 3 miles to the Bay Fair BART station to take BART to San Francisco (actually Daly City). There was no Cow Palace BART station so I walked another 3 miles on the other end to get to the show. Afterwards, I walked another 6 miles and took BART to get home. Since then I’ve seen Black Sabbath three times without nearly as much effort.

In four months (from today to be exact), I will see Black Sabbath for the last time. I will have a mere bike ride from my apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark. Best of all, I won’t be far from the stage like all of the other times. This time I will have a photo pass and be right at the feet of Geezer, Ozzy, and Tony. Can’t wait…
