Ronnie James Dio commands his drink order from the stage
Heaven and Hell

[Tony] Iommi credits his creativity for his undying love of riff writing, but his love for volume certainly plays a role, too.

"From day one, we were always louder than anyone," [Tony Iommi, guitarist for Heaven & Hell] said. "We certainly made sure no one could talk in our shows."

Iommi chuckles thinking about the early days

"We were always asked to turn it down," he remembered. "They'd tell us to turn it down or they wouldn't book us again. And unfortunately even now, and this is a sign of the times, there's a lot of restrictions on the sound... At one show in Bond, the limit was so low that I actually used only two (amplifier) cabinets of my eight. Bloody hell, I haven't used two cabinets since maybe the '60s." -[Boston Herald]

And according to field reports, volume was not an issue for the great Black Sabbath circa 1979 (AKA Heaven & Hell) along with the proggy hair-warriors of Coheed & Cambria at the WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden on Monday (8/26). As we pointed out in a previous post (that also has pictures from this show), Britney Spears was playing the larger room at MSG the same night.

The pair of bands are closing in on the end of their tour together, parting ways on august 29th when H&H will head down to Atlantic City (tickets) while C&C breaks off to Buffalo.

Not sure who the bigger douches are... the people on stage at these shows, or the people who pay to see them.

The people who pay to see Twent Weznor say goodbye only to have Peter Murphy say hello top them all!

Peter Murphy? R U KIDDING? I can't think of shittier low budget entertainer! Trent didn't even try to please his fans...
You can hire Peter Murphy to hang upside-down at a Cake Shop show for 5 bucks these days!

LOL! All too true. And he still took Twent's show away from him!
