Black Sabbath is an English heavy metal band formed in 1968 in Birmingham. They are considered one of the true pioneers of heavy metal music. MTV ranked them as the Greatest Metal Band of all time. The original group was guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward. Their musical style is best characterized as doomy music with the use of tuned-down guitars. Their new album 13 has them touring the world to sellout crowds everywhere. Interestingly, though, the band's most famous member wasn't even there for a significant period of time. Osbourne was dismissed from the band in 1979 because of drug abuse issues, and although he took on a solo career selling more than 100 million albums, he wasn't reunited with Black Sabbath until 1997. During the 80s and 90s the band experienced tons of lineup changes but their current reunion phase features the original members. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.
