never say die
That's the Sabbath song that starts out with the lyrics "Guess who just got back today? Those wild eyed boys that've been away" isn't it? Never say die is just a sped up version of boys are back in town, which had been an international smash two years earlier. Even the second song on the NSD album has a guy named Johnny in the title, and lizzy sings about a guy named Johnny in boys are back. I think Sabbath were either intentionally or unconsciously ripping off Thin Lizzy on that one. There's nothing on the Never Say Die album worth the poop on the bottom of Ronnie James Dildo's boot on the next two sabbath albums. Sorry, but I had to get that out of my system. I've been on a sabbath discography binge and I realized that about that song the other day. Now I'm on a Deep Purple binge listening to Glen Hughes destroy that band like he did sabbath with the exception of Come Taste The Band.
