Review by Guillermo
3 stars This video is good. It has interviews done with Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler and one of their managers. They talk about the history of the original line-up of this band, and it also shows some live performances of the band and some rare video clips. There are some funny commentaries, but this video also shows how important each member of this line-up was to their sound and image. Butler also talks about the lyrics he has written for the band, and one can see that he is a very important contibutor to the musical, lyrical and visual ideas of the band. Bill Ward also shows his importance as a very good drummer for the band. Ozzy Osbourne also appears as a vey good communicator with the audiences.

The sound and image of some songs are not very good, but this video is still good.
