Retrieved 15 January Rolling Stone. New Musical Express. Ultimate Classic Rock. Sabbath's line-up was in a state of chaos as the band prepared to enter the studio to record what would become Heaven and Hell. Not only had the band replaced its longtime vocalist, but drummer Bill Ward was battling personal issues that would see him also leave the band within months. Demo recordings for the album featured Geoff Nicholls on bass, as longtime bassist Geezer Butler was going through a divorce and his future with the band was in question.
At one point Iommi contacted close friend Frank Zappa for help finding a bassist . Zappa offered his bassist for the Heaven and Hell sessions but Iommi preferred a permanent member. Former Elf and Rainbow bassist Craig Gruber also rehearsed with the band, though the extent of his involvement is unclear. In a interview, Iommi stated that Gruber participated only "for a bit".
Personal issues aside, drummer Bill Ward wasn't completely happy with the direction Black Sabbath was moving in creatively. My favourite song on Heaven and Heaven And Hell - Black Sabbath - Heaven And Hell was a blues song that we did, 'Lonely Is the Word' — and that seemed to be real… But things like 'Lady Evil', they seemed almost like bandwagon-type lyrics… 'Lonely Is the Word', I definitely liked playing that song.
And 'Children of the Sea' — I did like to play that too. I thought Ronnie was a very good singer. Dio suggested the band hire producer Martin Birchwho he had worked with as a member of Rainbow in the s. In his memoir, he wrote, "Ozzy would sing with the riff. Just listen to 'Iron Man' and you'll catch my drift: his vocal melody line copies the melody of the music. There was nothing wrong with that, but Ronnie liked singing Ken Jay, Marge Cameron - Bimbo / Punchy The Clown the riff instead of with it, come up with a melody that was different from that of the music, which musically opens a lot more doors.
I don't want to sound like I'm Heaven And Hell - Black Sabbath - Heaven And Hell Ozzy, but Ronnie's approach opened up a new way for me to think Black Sabbath had a long history of playing pranks on drummer Ward, and this continued during the recording of Heaven and Hell. During a slow day in the studio, Iommi doused Ward with a solution used by studio technicians to clean the tape heads, and he then set light to the solution, which was much more flammable than he had anticipated.
Ward suffered third degree burns as a result and still has scars on his legs from the incident. Dio recalled answering the telephone in his hotel room one morning mid-tour to hear Ward say "I'm off then, Ron", to which Dio replied "That's nice Bill, where are you going?
I'm at the airport now", indicating that he was incapable of completing the tour. The Heaven and Hell album represents the only Sabbath material recorded during the Dio-era that does not feature Appice on drums.
