The Recording Academy recently wrote about Black Sabbath in a press release:

“From their power riffs to their dark, gothic imagery… Black Sabbath arguably invented the heavy metal signposts and influenced every heavy rock band that followed.”

Black Sabbath – Black Sabbath (Live in Paris 1970)

The original Black Sabbath lineup came to be in 1969 with Tony Iommi on guitar, Ozzy Osbourne vocals, Geezer Butler on bass and Bill Ward behind the drums.

That particular lineup recorded and toured through 1978, and periodically reformed through the ’90s and 2000’s for live work.

They band had again regrouped in late 2011 for a new album and tour, although Bill dropped out after a few months over financial issues. Black Sabbath has used Ozzy touring drummer Tommy Clufetos since then for live gigs.

Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk provided the percussion tracks on “13”, which came out in June 2013.
