Late posting today. No excuse, really, just slipped my mind that it was Sunday.
Watched an hour-long documentary on Jeff Lynne and the Electric Light Orchestra yesterday. I was actually fairly surprised that there wasn’t much at all about ELO. Mostly stuff about Lynne’s solo career as a producer. But aside from showing him performing some ELO stuff today, and a few short glimpses of ELO in their prime, nothing besides how his ELO history influenced his production career. Kind of disappointing, really. Maybe this was an edited version or something.
ELO, of course, featured Bev Bevan on the drums.
Bev Bevan would later join Black Sabbath.
But this is from 1970, and thusly features the classic lineup of John “Ozzy” Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Terry “Geezer” Butler and Bill Ward. Some folks say the title is short for “Nativity in Black.” Geezer says that it was named after Bill Ward’s goatee, which apparently looked like a pen’s nib. Whether or not Geezer’s telling the truth, I choose not to believe him. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.
Happy Sunday, kids. Here’s Satan:
