    Black Sabbath - Vol. 4 (1972): Programming out the cheesefest that is Changes and the reverb-laden musique concrète of FX so as not to get in the way of the proper stuff.

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    What can I say...

    I've literally got the T-shirt. I think Under the Sun was their best ever song.

    Although Ozzy was the perfect singer for them and although, of course, Iommi invented metal, I do think Geezer and Bill were under-rated.

    Have you read the Mick Wall or Iommi books?

    Bill and Geezer were a very fluid rhythm section at times - as with Entwistle and Moon of the Who they could weave in and out while the guitarist anchored the song with a riff.

    Nope - I didn't even know any had been written. Mick Wall was a writer I had a lot of time for, especially when he contributed to Sounds and also during the early years of Kerrang!, when he and Sylvie Simmons (a.k.a. Laura Canyon) wrote in a far more mature style than colleagues such as Xavier Russell and Dave Dickson.

    If the NME hadn't have been up its own **** so much when Julie Burchill and Tony Parsons were holding court I've have read that as well.

    I had a full page article published in Kerrang! about ZZ Top when they were still unknown in the UK. But that's an anecdote for when I'm decaying in a care home.

    Really? What number was it? I must have read that! The only times I've ever been in print was when I had a couple of my letters featured in MOJO.

    I remember buying the first edition of Kerrang! when I was at college early in 1981. Wish I'd hung on to it but at the time I just assumed it was going to remain an occasional Sounds metal-friendly spin-off rather than an ongoing publication in its own right. Perhaps I'm looking back at Kerrang! through rose-tinted spectacles, though - a lot of the NWoBHM bands they featured were risible.

    I too remember buying the first one. It had Angus Young on the front didn't it?

    I don't know what number the article was in. For some mad reason I unilaterally sent off brief reviews of the Top's albums (up to Deguello) and it got published (together with an interview). My piece was uncredited so naturally when I told a friend that I'd written it he basically called me a deluded liar. In a huff I wrote to the publisher and complained. I duly received an apology for the "oversight" and a small cheque. Thus began and ended my career in rock journalism.
