BLACK SABBATH Biography On The Way

A BLACK SABBATH biography, written by Rockdetector editor-in-chief Garry Sharpe-Young and documenting the most tangled yet creative period of the band's history from 1980 to the present day, is tentatively slated for early 2003 publication.

Over two years in the making, the book will include exclusive photographs, interviews (including those conducted face-to-face with the late Ray Gillen and Cozy Powell), full global discography and massive details on all related acts and musicians.

In conjunction with the book, Rock Detector is looking to include a free compilation CD featuring radical re-interpretations of BLACK SABBATH songs from this era. "The emphasis is on RADICAL," according to an official press release. "We are not looking for straight tributes but for bands who can give a different perspective on these masterly works."
