The kid band Motion Device are one talented group! 10-year-old singer Sara is even dressed just like Ozzy Osbourne with a white fringe-sleeved shirt, a huge cross on a necklace, and those famous round sunglasses. Meanwhile, the bass player's leather get-up may not appeal to Geezer Butler's vegan lifestyle, but she certainly brings the metal!
The metal world's collective heart sank when it was announced in the beginning of 2012 that the godfather of metal himself, Tony Iommi, was battling lymphoma. However, the Black Sabbath guitarist has managed to persevere despite the diagnosis, and has started the new year with his latest health update.
Black Sabbath have had a monster year in 2013, but it almost didn't happen at all. On top of guitarist Tony Iommi's lymphoma diagnosis, original drummer Bill Ward pulled out of the Sabbath reunion due to contractual issues. Although Black Sabbath have captured success with Brad Wilk in the studio and Tommy Clufetos on tour, both Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler have reiterated that they wished it had all worked out with Ward.
Metal may not get the wealth of recognition that other genres receive, but the big category that every metalhead music fan should be paying attention to is the Best Metal Performance category. The nominees for the 2014 Grammy Awards were just announced and there's a diverse group of acts populating the category.
Black Sabbath made one of metal's all-time greatest comebacks in 2013, releasing '13' and embarking on a world tour despite guitarist Tony Iommi's lymphoma diagnosis and parting ways with founding drummer Bill Ward over apparent contract issues. The band had forced itself past those hardships, but underneath it all, singer Ozzy Osbourne had relapsed on drugs and alcohol.
Just look at these rock 'n' roll children! Rather than toiling away at singing some silly nursery rhymes and annoying their parents, these kids can be as loud as they want if they keep singing songs like this! Hell, it might even give the adults an excuse to shamelessly sing along with the famed Black Sabbath tune!
