Global heavy metal stars visit Birmingham’s Black Sabbath Bench

The Black Sabbath bench at the bottom of Broad Street attracts the attention of heavy metal heroes around the world

It’s a popular tribute to some of Birmingham’s most beloved heroes – the Black Sabbath Bench above the Black Sabbath Bridge over the canal near Brindleyplace at the bottom of Broad Street.

Hundreds of Brummies pass by daily and thousands more have taken their place of honor from Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward.

But it’s not just locals who admire the world’s first heavy metal band born and raised in Birmingham – inspired by industrial entrepreneurship in the factories of Aston.

Rock heroes from around the world made a special trip to Brum to post a photo on the bench.

Singer and guitarist Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow of Canadian heavy metal band Anvil is one of the latest rockers to be pictured at the canal bridge site on Broad Street in the city Western business district – both alone, then with other members of the group.

And he is not alone! Here are six international heavy metal stars who posed for a wink at the Black Sabbath Bridge
