HEAVEN & HELL - BLISS FOR BLACK SABBATH FANS IN 2007:
Spanish website www.rafabasa.com has posted news of a Black Sabbath re-union of sorts - under a different name - Heaven & Hell.
The line-up will apparently be comprised of Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward and Ronnie James Dio. The website reports that a tour is planned by the group starting mid-2007.
How accurate is this information? Pretty damned good from what I have heard. In fact, I heard something to this effect back in June. While there is still nothing official being said, I can add a little more information:
- Ronnie James Dio was apparently approached by another individual this year for a possible new collaboration, but turned them down due to a prior commitment to this project.
- The project formed after Tony Iommi and Dio met to work on a couple of new tracks for a planned Black Sabbath box set The Dio Years.
- The whole deal has been kept quiet to avoid any unpleasantries during this year's Ozzfest tour.
I'm sure we will be hearing more about this! Stay tuned...
