Black Sabbath Hockey Mask Released. We Can’t Even Play Hockey And We Want One
Massachusetts hockey goalie Liz Connor has had a special Black Sabbath hockey mask made by Headstrong Grafx. Not bad, Liz. Not bad at all.
”I asked specifically for the picture of Henry (the flying devil logo) on the forehead, based on alternative CD art for [Heaven And Hell album] The Devil You Know and the band name on the chin,” says Liz herself. “My only other stipulation was that the mask not focus 100% on Ozzy.
“Tony Iommi’s riffs are what drew me to Sabbath, and I wanted to make sure he was included somewhere. The rest was all Headstrong.”
Black Sabbath made a triumphant return this year (minus original drummer Bill Ward, who sat out the reunion due to ongoing contract issues), playing an incredible set at the Birmingham Academy and headlining Download 2012 on the Sunday night. A new album produced by Rick Rubin is tentatively scheduled for release later this year.
