Well, I'm sorry. This is Black Sabbath with... not exactly their most famous singer. In fact, it's Black Sabbath with not even their most famous dead singer. In fact, it's Black Sabbath with not even the more famous of their two singers whose surnames are homophones of one another (the more famous in that case being Deep Purple's Ian Gillan).

To hear Black Sabbath with their most famous dead singer, you'll have to wait until whenever I get around to May 16th... which, at the rate things are going around here, might be sometime in July. To hear Black Sabbath with their most famous singer, you'll have to wait until someone in their current lineup (that's to say, their original lineup) poops. And honestly, that could happen either tomorrow, or decades after I've stopped doing this blog. Either way, you nasty little children of the grave are looking at a minimum wait of one month and four days, and a maximum wait of forever. Maybe you'd better try looking somewhere else!
