PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve been a fan of this legendary musical figure quite a few years I’ve only ever caught him in concert a couple of times. Once was only a few short years ago and the other….well, let’s just say my younger readers weren’t even ideas yet but I digress. It’s going to be interesting to see him doing all these classic tunes as a showcase and to my knowledge he has never before toured a complete set of Deep Purple music. Let’s hope a recording of this is done as well since that would go over like gangbusters. As I’ve a mountain of “to do” in front of me and the website’s anniversary is tomorrow I am going to take my leave with a simple inquiry; What do you think about this tour? Will you attend? Will you go a couple of times? Fill me in down in the comments below.

“Thank You & Farewell” to Black Sabbath (1968-2017)

As everyone prepares for “The Big Game” with Super Bowl LI (which doesn’t mean the game is in Long Island BTW) I am thinking of more important things to my field of interests and a large portion of my mental focus today is the fact that yesterday the mighty Black Sabbath played their last gig ever and has closed their personal book on Heavy Metal history. “The End” is no longer near nor on its way and has instead arrived and passed. Today is the day that founding members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler sit back and rightfully rest upon their laurels and believe me there are many laurels to be sitting on after such a career. I thank them profusely for the just shy of fifty years that Metal music was delivered under the Black Sabbath banner. Of course, we have plenty of others to thank now as well with the original founders closing this historic tome so let’s raise the horns for them as well. The clip below is from the actual final shows ending moments and the images used are from the final show that happened in New Jersey late last year.

To the INCREDIBLE former members of the Black Sabbath lineup both living and deceased such as Bill Ward, Ronnie James Dio, Geoff Nichols, Dave Walker, Craig Gruber, Vinny Appice, Ian Gillan, Bev Bevan, Ron Keel, David Donato, Eric Singer, Dave Spitz, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen, Bob Daisley, Tony Martin, Terry Chimes, Jo Burt, Cozy Powell, Laurence Cottie, Neil Murray and Bobby Rondinelli. Some of these folks I never even realized had been members over the years but indeed they have and I thank them for their own offerings to the legendary name.

The Details: His name is a legendary one for sure with his work with the great Deep Purple, Black Country Communion and so much more that I would be writing for a few more sentences if I kept at it. Yes I am speaking about the great Glenn Hughes who is now on a solo tour with some talented musicians and bringing his historic career to life right before your very eyes. There are few like him and now he adds “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” inductee to his list of accomplishments. All of this makes me happy to announce that he and his band will be performing at the B.B. King Blues Club and thanks to venue some of the PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free. Cool right? Read more below on how this works.
