In this 50th anniversary year of the release of the very first Black Sabbath album, it's fun to hear guitarist Tony Iommi tell the story of how the band came together in Birmingham, England, and how after seeing an ad posted at a music store from Ozzy Osbourne saying he was looking for a band to sing for, Iommi told drummer Bill Ward to forget it, because "he can't sing."
