"Bill, Geezer, Ozzy, Tony, if it weren't for you, we wouldn't be here" said Lars while inducting Black Sabbath to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Lars also added "if there was no Black Sabbath, there would be no Metallica, and I could possibly still be a newspaper delivery boy." I think we are all happy there is a Black Sabbath, and just as happy there is a Metallica. After James and Lars inducted Sabbath, they joined their mates Rob and Kirk (both Lars and Rob donning Black Sabbath shirts) and ran thru a blistering 2-song set that consisted of "Hole In The Sky" and "Iron Man." The guys were very psyched to have the honor of inducting Sabbath, and playing for them. My "bootleg" shots of the performance are coming right up.
