    First concert I ever saw that was "big" was Sabbath with Ronnie James Dio. Heaven and Hell tour. I also saw Ozzy on his first 2 tours and got to stand right in front of Randy Rhodes as he played.

    Man that was LOUD!

    I saw them on the same tour (it was June '78) at Hammersmith Odeon. The gig was filmed:

    One of my favorite and most influential bands. At around 11 years old I saw the debut in my uncle's record collection. I asked him if i could borrow it and he said I could have it! I had a sweet Panasonic stereo in my room and when I dropped the needle on that first track, WOW! Scared me to death - I was hooked! i saved my allowance and lunch money and would buy everything up to Born Again. I usually got a new album every two weeks so it took a while. I do remember that i bought Sabotage next. I skipped over Paranoid for the longest due to the lame album cover. I do think that Dio Era is just as good as the Ozzy era. I also really dig the Born Again album.

    there was some mention of Tony's early use of a strat above. this song (or half a song) really sounds like a strat to me. how different would sabbath's sound have been, if Tony's strat hadn't died when it did?
