About this Article

Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath worked hard to create a dark aura around their band in the late 1960s. As the band's original lineup attempted to reform over the last 10 years to record a new album, there was no need to manufacture that sense of doom. Drummer Bill Ward left the band. Guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma. And Osbourne began to drink again. Despite all that, they released their new album, "13," this week.
