Black Sabbath Iron Man
Best song Black sabbath Iron Man Arden (later Sharon Osbourne), Daughter of Black Sabbath manager Don Arden, suggested former Rainbow vocalist Ronnie James Dio to replace Ozzy Osbourne in 1979. Don Arden was at this point still trying to convince Osbourne to rejoin the band, as he viewed the original line-up as the most profitable.
Black Sabbath were an English heavy metal band from Aston, Birmingham. Formed in 1968, the group originally featured vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward. The initial lineup of the band lasted until 1977, during which time they released seven successful studio albums, including UK Albums Chart top-five releases Paranoid, Master of Reality and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Osbourne left the group in 1977 and was replaced briefly by Dave Walker, although the founding frontman returned the following year. His return was short-lived, however, and he was replaced in 1979 by Ronnie James Dio at the suggestion of Sharon Arden, who would later marry Osbourne. Butler also briefly left in 1979, although after hearing sessions recorded by replacement Craig Gruber he returned.
