Black Sabbath’s Telling Us Something

04:07 PM Friday 11/4/11 | |

There’s a cryptic message on the Black Sabbath website that simply says “11.11.11.”  Gee, we wonder what this could possibly mean.

Tommy Iommi had an awkward moment in August when he told the Birmingham Mail he and Ozzy Osbourne were writing songs, but nobody was supposed to talk about it.

“Ozzy’s been the worst at trying to hold it back,” Iommi said. “He’s doing a lot of TV and he’s being asked stuff about a reunion and he’s going ‘well I never say never.’”

Iommi soon issued a statement, blaming the journalist for misinterpreting information. He was just “shooting the breeze” and “merely speculating.”

Maybe it got everybody in the band interested again.  Look – we’re just sayin’ it would be interesting if the website is foreshadowing an announcement – one that could possibly take place at the Whiskey A Go-Go at 11:11 a.m.  It would be really interesting if it was hosted by Henry Rollins, too. The Whiskey is where Black Sabbath started 41 years ago, opening for Alice Cooper.

OK, apparently that information has been floating about, but Black Sabbath’s management (also known as Sharon’s office) tells Pollstar there has not been any press release of any kind.

So we’ll just have to keep guessing what this 11.11.11 could possibly mean. We hope it’s not a press conference. Pollstar is holding its one-second party in the kitchen at 11:11:11. You’re welcome to drop by. But we call security on your ass at 11:11:13 … freeloader.

    Here is some free advice: if you do not care for a reunion, for a tour, et. cetera: DO NOT GO. No one will miss you. Also, try your hardest not to threadcrap all over the stories.

    Memo to Ahhhhhh:

    You do not have to be a fan to this genre of music to realize that Sabbath  

    are pioneers in the music landscape and very influential to hard rock/heavy metal.   Butler, Iommi, Ward are still a tight unit live.

    Sabbath did bring a little darkness to the paisley B.S. of the time and I appreciate that.

    Another Ozzy tour, you are right, who cares.  Sabbath is a different story.

    No Sabbath =  no Crazy Train.  One has to wonder what Hard Rock would sound like if Sabbath or Zeppelin never existed.

    Tony mentions (in his interview on Black Sabbath On-Line) all the rumors that have been floating around about the reunion.  If there was nothing to these rumors he wouldn't have mentioned them at all but he went out of his way to talk about them, he wasn't even asked.  That and the big '11-11-11' message in Masters Of Reality print does it for me.  I'm looking forward to it really, they really oughtta give it one more shot.

    Rolling Stone said Black Sabbath is going to be holding a press conference on 11-11-11 at the Whiskey. They will probably be announcing a reunion tour and/or new album.
