Black Sabbath to be honored as "Living Legends" At "Classic Rock Roll Of Honour"!

 

British heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath will be honored as "Living Legends" at the ninth annual Classic Rock Roll Of Honour, set to take place on Tuesday, November 14 at London, England's Roundhouse.

Commented singer Ozzy Osbourne: "It's good to be a living legend. It's better than being a dead one."

Past winners of the Living Legend award include ZZ TOP, Jeff Beck, Alice Cooper, Jimmy Page, Lemmy and Iggy Pop.

Added Chris Ingham from Classic Rock magazine: "We're delighted to welcome Black Sabbath to collect our Living Legend Award. It's wholly deserved as not only do they have a career to celebrate, but Ozzy, Geezer and Tony blasted back with a brilliant new album in 2013 that reminded us all how it should be done."

"13", the first record in 35 years to feature Ozzy, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler all playing together, entered the official U.K. chart at position No. 1. The CD sold 13,000 copies more than the No. 2 entry.

The last time Sabbath topped the chart in the U.K. was nearly 43 years ago — in October 1970 — with the band's second LP, "Paranoid".
