Black Sabbath Nab Living Legend Award, Announce 2014 Tour Dates

Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath were the big winners at this year’s Classic Rock Roll of Honor ceremony in London. The heavy metal pioneers picked up three prizes, including the coveted Living Legend award, reports "I didn’t even expect to live this long,” said Ozzy Osbourne, accepting the awards. “When I was 21 I thought I would be dead by 40. That was alright until I was 39." He later added: “I never thought 43 years ago I'd be standing here. We're in shock--this year has been an incredible event for us.”

Guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler attended the event as well. “It's fantastic to get the awards,” said Iommi. “When we started out we never thought about it, you just wanted to play. Even this time, we never thought for a minute [the new album] would get to number one. We just wanted to make an album.”
