This Kind of Blew Me Away

Sitting in church last night, a 20-something kid came in wearing a "Black Sabbath" tee-shirt.  I thought to myself, I saw them in concert.

I immediately realized I saw Black Sabbath in concert 40 years ago.  OMG.  A quick search shows Ozzie is 62.  Doesn't look a day over 80.  That clean living helps.  (Actually, he looks pretty good in that Wiki picture.)


  1. Must have seen them on the same tour.
    40 years isn't as long as I once thought it was...

  2. It seems shorter now than it did then.

  3. Does the kid even know what the literal meaning of the words "black sabbath" are?

  4. Anon 1152 - I didn't talk with the kid about it, but my guess is they're just a band to him.

  5. Wait a minute! I was born on the same day as Ozzie! OMG - I'm 62???

    Now that's just wrong. But I MUST have had a good time.

    Cheers, Medium Sized Jake

  6. Jake, you reminded me of a friend from work. He has a sticker in his cube that says, "if you remember the 60s, you weren't there".
