1. Love the jam at the end with Rick Wakeman on piano

His son Adam now tours with Ozzy and Sabbath.

Yes keyboard icon Rick Wakeman discussed his relationship with Black Sabbath, explaining why he never joined the band back in the day despite Tony Iommi wanting him to.

As you might already know, Mr. Wakeman appeared on Sabbath's classic 1973 album "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath," delivering the keyboard parts on "Sabbra Cadabra."

He tells Prog Magazine: "I loved Black Sabbath. I loved them musically and loved them as people as well.

"I knew them pretty well because Yes had supported Sabbath in America on a few tours in the early '70s and they all liked a drink, like I did.

"Socially Sabbath were much more my cup of tea than Yes were - drinkers and hell-raisers who really loved their rock 'n' roll. I used to travel with Sabbath on their plane because we got on so well.

"In fact Tony Iommi, who I have remained great friends with over the years, once told me the band were seriously considering asking me to join them at one point, because we got on so well and they were looking to expand their sound.

"But Ozzy was worried, probably quite rightly, about how the metal fans would react.

"I first worked with them in the early '70s when they were recording 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath' and they needed a Mini-Moog on one track. Yes were in the studio next door, and I told them I'd pop in after we'd finished.

"When I got there, they were all... 'asleep' is the politest way of describing it. Except for one frightened young tape op, who put the track in question on.

"I tried a few things out, and after the third thing I played, Ozzy lifted his head up, said: 'Fucking great,' and passed out again."
