Black Sabbath to receive Lifetime Achievement award at Grammy's

music news 21/12/2018

The British icons, who played their farewell show in February 2017, will receive a Lifetime Achievement Grammy at a ceremony in May next year.

The awards are given to artists who have “made outstanding contributions … to the field of recording,” the Academy said.

From their power riffs to their dark, gothic imagery, Black Sabbath arguable invented the heavy metal signposts and influenced every heavy rock band that followed.

Since their retirement, singer Ozzy Osbourne has commenced his own farewell tour, bassist Geezer Butler launched new band Deadland Ritual and guitarist Tony Lommi is planning future projects.
