Gadsden, Tennessee is a typical Southern small town, located north of Jackson, which is itself about another 45 minutes north of Memphis, the nearest big city. When Scotty Moore was born there 82 years ago, on December 27, 1931, it was little more than a hamlet — exactly the kind of place where most of the great formative American rock and blues musicians — from Ike Turner to Johnny Cash to Levon Helm — came from.

Black Sabbath's new DVD Live...Gathered In Their Masses is a must-watch - and I'm not just saying that because I attended one of the two shows the footage was filmed at.
