Black Sabbath Bench Unveiled In Birmingham!


Black Sabbath fans gathered in Birmingham to view a sculpted bench presented to the band’s guitarist Tomy Iommi.

The sculpture is the brain child of a “super-fan” and architect Mohammed Osam. The bench incorporates the images of the band’s four original members and will be put on the renamed Black Sabbath Bridge over the canal on Broad Street.

Guitarist Tony Iommi said at the launch,  “I think it’s absolutely great. I was wondering what it was going to look like but it is really fantastic. I really love it.”

The bench was forged in the city and is inscribed “Geezer. Ozzy. Tony. Bill. Made in Birmingham 1968′. Fans applied for 350 tickets to see the presentation.

Iommi said to thos in attendance,  “These are our fans and some of them have come from all over the world and it’s just brilliant to see that.”

Black Sabbath formed 51 years ago in Birmingham by Iommi, singer Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward.
