78: Speaking of LIVE AID




30 years ago, Me and Caroline went out to Dancateria. We somehow got a ride back to her place in co=op city in the Bronx, is that what the neighborhood was called, really?  and slept there and got up to an alarm clock to see Black Sabbath play early that morning, the original line up, who had not played together since 1978. So I am always fond of rocking out with a 11am set.

god bless Black Sabbath. Di you kow that the Stonehenge bit in Spinal tap was based on a true Sabbath story; this is from wikipedia: The tour in support of Born Again included a giant set of the Stonehenge monument. In a move that would be later parodied in the mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, the band made a mistake in ordering the set piece. As Geezer Butler later explained:
We had Sharon Osbourne's dad, Don Arden, managing us. He came up with the idea of having the stage set be Stonehenge. He wrote the dimensions down and gave it to our tour manager. He wrote it down in metres but he meant to write it down in feet. The people who made it saw fifteen metres instead of fifteen feet. It was 45 feet high and it wouldn't fit on any stage anywhere so we just had to leave it in the storage area. It cost a fortune to make but there was not a building on earth that you could fit it into.[78]


Anyway, get out of bed and do something, anything, with your life!!!!!!

Gee, I wanted to post this rare gem, but could not fiind it online other than on the entire album, so Fast forward to 27:02 if you want to hear the track I was thinking of “GET OUT OF THE OLD NEIGHBORHOOD”, brickface and stucco
