Personal Quote:

[on how he created the heavy music for Black Sabbath] "Well, to be honest, we just became so fed up with people talking while we were playing that we said, 'Screw it, let's turn it up, so they won't be able to chatter.' The band just kept getting louder and louder." See more »


In grade school in Birmingham, England, used to bully the man who would later become his bandmate, Ozzy Osbourne. See more »
