Best email Ive received in years

Posted: Jan 23, 2007

listen... I don't send out emails to tell people too much these days.

our band? you know where we are if you care.

releases on my Outlaw? same thing.

but THIS is important stuff, and I felt it warranted a special mail:

BLACK SABBATH - back together with DIO are touring at HEAVEN AND HELL, and playing their ONLY scheduled US show at RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL on March 30th!

Tix go on sale on Friday at 10 AM, don't ask me to get 'em- I may be out of town so it's every man, woman, and lost children of the sea for themselves!

But it would be cool to see some friends in the crowd! Yeah, it's cool to wear SABBATH shirts and listen to PARANOID, and everybody says "oh I like Ozzy era Sabbath..." meow meow meow... and so do I! But let's face it- OZZY has been a cash crop for years now and is an embarrassment to himself and the SABBATH organization with his bumbling through SABBATH classics, butchering lyrics he is incapable of reading off his teleprompter every year at SLOBOZZFEST!! Anyone who wants to argue that obviously wasn't at the Ozzfest a few years back at Jone's Beach where PRIEST blew them clear off the stage and out into the water!!!

It's time for the majestic short man DIO to show us how it's done! Everything has come full circle again! I'm hoping to follow the tour on the Canadian east coast dates, so to any of my friends up north- I hope to see you there too!

if you listen to fools.. THE MOB RULES!!
