The more i read about bands, the more I understand it is about 4 colleagues who make music, and who disagree as much as they agree. This is a shock and moderately upsetting. In the 45 years i have been following music, my perception of bands has been as per the Fabs in “Help”, or The Monkees. I really did think bands were pals and ex-flatmates who enjoyed each other’s company, had amusing sessions in the pub (plus full and frank recording sessions like The Troggs, and hedonism like Motley Crue). When i read how distant members of an act are to each other, even when travelling the globe in luxury, I start to understand why they start to get creative inertia and the band is just a brand. Tony Iommi’s description of a Sabs tour above… it sounds a bit sad.
