Riff: Black Sabbath – “Live Forever”

Jun 12, 2013

I may be dreaming or whatever/Watching my life go by/And I don’t wanna live forever/But I don’t wanna die

from Live Forever lyrics by Black Sabbath

The first bit of rust spotted on this comeback ride has everyone phoning in a cruiser, tailored for some odd teleprompter Ozzy stumble fail, but instead powers in fourth gear on with Wilk riding a kitchen sink cymbal ride so the “prince of darkness” can disseminate he “may be dreaming or whatever.”
