Im just wondering what a lot of you out there think on this subject.
Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgement day comes
Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
All right now!

Oh man, Zeppelin being my all-time personal favorite, I can't say Sabbath is #1. So I'll go for #2, only in regard to the 'Ozzy years.'
I'm not that stoked on Iommi, but I really think Ozzy is both misunderstood and under-estimated, talent-wise. Really, that is applicable to the whole band. Ozzy's got a voice you either hate or love, but if you listen with a critical ear, that dude can really sing! And their lyrics I think are deep and full of deep insight that is not at all about what the general public believes...
I love Symptom of the Universe and Spiral Architect--Snowblind is another favorite, and the words to War Pigs never seem to lose their pertinence (sad to say.)
Did anyone see this year's induction show for the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame? I never watch TV hardly at all, but I happened to hear they were inducted this year (about #@*$ing time !!!) and then I got lucky and somehow caught the show on VH1.
They didn't perform--Metallica did the honors, and I think they did Sabbath justice as well as themselves. The Sex Pistols declined their invite by sending a somewhat nasty, but hilarious, letter which was read on stage... It was totally in character, though, IMO.
But #1 for me has got to be Zep. Something about that combination was total magic! It was fitting they decided to dissolve not soon after they found Bonzo dead.
I did get to see Plant and Page live when they were touring for their 'Unledded' album, around 1995 I think it was--which was done with the help of the local symphonies, similar to the performance of Metallica's S & M--although Zep toured and I think Metallica just did one show, with SF Symphony. That was truly a dream come true for me--I have listened to those guys almost all of my life!!!
The really talented metal bands, combining with symphonic orchestration is AWESOME. You might not think it would be, but it is indescribable. Totally
