Black Sabbath in NJ in 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)

Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi told Metalhammer that the reunited group's next concert at the Barclaycard British Summer Time festival (what a mouthful) may be the band's last. In what wasn't so much a "we're done" interview, Iommi said that with no future touring plans it's uncertain whether the band will book any more shows. Iommi travels to England every six weeks for treatment for lymphoma, which he was diagnosed with in 2012.

In other Black Sabbath news, bassist Geezer Butler has offered $1,000 for information leading to the apprehension of the person responsible for putting 25 dead cats in plastic bags and hanging them from a tree in Yonkers, NY. From The Journal News:

"It is so tragic that we have human beings among us that are capable of committing such a heinous and heartless crime," Butler said in a prepared statement released by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Westchester. "Surely there is someone out there that knows who has done this. Please do the right thing and come forward to get this coward(s) off the street."
The cats were found in late April, and Geezer's donation brings the reward for catching the person or persons who committed the crime to $25,000. Like Geezer, we hope this sicko is brought to justice, and if there is ever a second edition of 'Metal Cats', we hope Geezer gets the cover.

Ok, I admit it. I did it. I'll take that $25,000 and my slap on the wrist.

You ever been to the meat section in any American supermarket?

Fucking idiot.

"A Long Island cat became the first to have a hip replacement, which was just several thousand dollars more expensive than the more common practice of... cat replacement."
