Fucking love Bill Ward. Also it's nice to hear Ozzy when he still had a voice.

This whole show is awesome. Guitar beardo mode: this made me realize Iommi was using P-90s on the early stuff, something that never occurred to me. Also, good shots of his missing fingertips.
Also great about these clips is how much it shows a band not trying so goddamn hard to be this cartoon of what "metal" is, which is sadly scarce in metal bands since.
I was only able to get about halfway through this shit, I admit. Too much metal-wankery.
I could try to explain that all lead guitar is not wankery, but what's the use? Only two points are truly relevant.
1) You don't watch the things you 1-star.
2) Modest Mouse
1 - Yes, I do. Rarely something is just so bad that I don't make it all the way through, but I at least go to 50%. I feel that if a video has proven to be utter shit all the way to the halfway point, it will basically never recover.
2 - Modest Mouse isn't really even on my "A list." They're pretty good, but are by no means my favourite group. I usually list them because they're similar to bands that I do really like, and people are somewhat likely to have heard their stuff.
Lead guitar is definitely not always wankery. This video had plenty of wankery, and it wasn't all from the lead guitarist.
Overwound p90 clones and a Dallas Rangemaster into a Marshall stack, first 3 or 4 albums. Also absurdly light strings, something like .008 - .032.
Flower Travellin Band and Randy Holden were both heavier, as much as I love Sabbath.
Wank is something like Tom Waits spouting pseudoliterate tripe. This is plain old BRINGING IT.
Cause trippin and smokin is all that you do...
I need to start listening to Sabbath again.
resubmit is not the awesome live version but still ok
We post what's available.
I'm grateful the resub still stands...
