OK, so I was listening to Pandora the other day and a live Black Sabbath cut came up, and I opened up the info page for the album, which was 1998's Reunion when the classic Black Sabbath line-up got together for a tour, and a series of concerts in their home town of Birmingham (where this was recorded). The thing on Pandora was extremely complimentary on this 2-disc set, saying it was one of the best ever live albums. So, I wandered off to Amazon's new/used vendors an found a "like new" copy of this $24.95 list album for $3.79 ($6.77 with shipping). It came in this weekend, and I've been playing it over and over, as it IS an awesome recording of Black Sabbath at their best.
Ozzy, in his between-the-tracks banter, keeps dropping "the F-bomb" over and over and over "You Fuckers!", "C'mon, you can be fucking LOUDER!", F-this, F-that, F-the other thing. And here's the point that has me feeling like some crotchety old guy ... it was bothering me!
What's next? Getting a place with a lawn so I can yell at kids to get off of it?
