    Default Eddie in Black Sabbath Special

    Anyone else catch the Black Sabbath special on the Biography Channel? It had several interviewed pieces with Eddie which was weird because he rarely ever does this sort of thing. It was fairly recent too judging from Ed's looks, probably within the last year, maybe within the last couple of months. Ed gave Sabbath props and helped tell a funny story about Ozzy from their '78 tour.

    Ozzy, it seemed showed up in some city, I think it was Memphis, and still had his hotel room key from the previous city. In his "state" he didn't realize it was the wrong key from the wrong city and went to that room in the new hotel. The maid just happened to be coming out of the room when Ozzy showed up so he just walked right in and went to bed. He woke up about 18 hours later, having missed the show which Sabbath was forced to cancel. The bands management had searched all the bars in Memphis looking for him not knowing he was at the hotel, just in the wrong room.

    There was also comments from Tony and Geezer regarding that '78 tour with VH. Anyway I'm sure it will be replayed at some point but I thought it was neat cos you really never see Ed on these "behind the music" type shows.

    I was at that show and it was Nashville(not Memphis) Ozzy never showed,It was on a Thursday and they came out and announced that Black Sabbath would not be performing because Ozzy was ill and all ticket holders could come back for the show the following Sunday afternoon,I went back and got a double dose of Van Halen for that week,Wow what a treat,I remember it well,Ozzy did perform that day and it was later announced in the local Nashville paper about Ozzys' wrong room incident.I later heard that his personal management(Sharon) encouraged him to periodically miss shows so that he could get fired from Black Sabbath and concentrate on his solo career.

    I don't know if that's totally true. Sharon didn't manage Ozzy until after he was fired from Sabbath. BUT, Sharon's Dad managed Sabbath, so who knows where the "you should miss shows" came from. I also think that Sharon was around 17 or 18 around the time Sabbath fell apart and then Ozzy began his solo career and started dating Sharon.
    Just go for it!

    Sharon at the time would have been more like 27 as she was born in 1952,Just saying.

    Yes, they went into Dio briefly, but it was mainly about OZZY/Sabbath.
