Haha! Black Sabbath have a UK number 1 album again (~43 years since Paranoid topped the album charts)...

Black Sabbath back at top of charts

'Me old mates' Ozzie and Tony look quite well in the picture, all things considered.

Yeah, I mean why not? The album sounds a bit over-produced to me, but there are some decent tunes IMO. I particularly like Damaged Soul and Dear Father.

And on the subject of old geezers (pun intended) making (relatively) new albums, we also have Deep Purple (or the remnants thereof):

Deep Purple - Hell To Pay

... And Golden Earring with their very subtly named album, T!ts 'N Ass:

Golden Earring - D0pe Runner

... And Neil Young:

Neil Young with Crazy Horse - Walk Like A Giant (extended version)

... And Depeche Mode:

Depeche Mode - Broken

... And Johnny Marr:

Johnny Marr - New Town Velocity

... And David Bowie obviously.

Next thing we know, you'll be telling me that the Stones are touring again. Oh, wait...

... Oh, and Todd Rundgren:

Todd Rundgren - Collide-A-Scope (from State)

... And Boz Scaggs:

Boz Scaggs - Gone Baby Gone (from Memphis)

... And Poco:

Poco - Regret (from All Fired Up)

... And God bless Ian Hunter:

Ian Hunter - When I'm President

I love this track from his previous album (Man Overboard):

Ian Hunter - Arms and Legs

sounds very old school

and Dear Father.
Still got their sound without trying to sound like something new, great to see the boys playing agin

... And Neil Young: Neil Young with Crazy Horse - Walk Like A Giant (extended version)
same with this

... Oh, and Todd Rundgren: Todd Rundgren - Collide-A-Scope (from State)
Now that was out there, not sure how I feel about that yet

... And Poco: Poco - Regret (from All Fired Up)
Will have to hear from the new album - great to see them recording again, but this one really doesn't work for me

will have to get to the others when it's not so late...

What I now appreciate about 'concept rock', is if you did a say 10 or 20 minute track, > one mistake and you've fluffed it...

Talking of old geezers...

Heart - Stairway to Heaven Led Zeppelin - Kennedy Center Honors

Definitely a goosebump moment for me when that huge choir kicks in.

That was interesting. And it is retro. It reminds me of another 'cute/pop-punk' act from c1980 who were called The Farmers Boys.

(No joy on Youtube looking for the precise track though...)

He may not be the best guitarist, but he is always a superb musician and songwriter.

The sound he gets on the original http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQhEvfeJocM is the stuff of legend. Must have had a stack of fuzz boxes.

Am now reading a book called Hotel California, about how all those Neil, CSNY, Joni Mitchell, etc. bands got started in the Laurel Canyon areas of California, so far quite a good read.
