Book Description

A winning account of Ozzy Osbournes Black Sabbath in their early, glory years.

Black Sabbath is one of the most outrageous, yet longest-lived bands in the history of rock n roll. This informative, idiosyncratic book paints a vivid picture of the bands colourful early history — interwoven with all the most crucial news stories of the time: from Vietnam to Bloody Sunday and the Space program.

Where Rat Salad diverges from routes taken by most rock biographies, however, is in its detailed analysis of the bands first six albums. These chapters occupy about half the book and persuasively explain the appeal of the music, its compositional artistry and its audacious inventiveness.

Original and passionate, Rat Salad embraces a remarkably diverse cast of characters — from Ozzy Osbourne himself and the other band members, through to Edith Sitwell, Breugel the Elder, John Milton and Doris Day. The authors hand looms large in the piece. We see him both as a boy and a man, as he looks back at a life populated with love, sex, drugs and death, played out against a backdrop of crucifixes and power chords.
