BLACK SABBATH/HEAVEN AND HELL members Ronnie James Dio (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass) and Vinny Appice (drums) signed copies of "Black Sabbath: The Rules Of Hell" earlier today (Saturday, August 2) at Vintage Vinyl in Ford, New Jersey. Check out photos at the Brooklyn Rocks music blog and photo journal.
Commented Mike of Brooklyn Rocks: "The signing was scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. and I got to the store around 2:30 p.m. The line wasn't too bad and it took about 90 minutes to meet the band and get my stuff signed. This was night-and-day difference from the Ozzy/SABBATH signing at Virgin in Times Square in the late '90s where I stood in line for three hours and gave up after the line moved about 10 feet during that time.
"HEAVEN AND HELL seemed really cool and sociable. There were a few people who got quick pictures with Ronnie and, as I was leaving, one woman was having her baby's shirt signed."
