Born Again is the 11th studio album by English heavy metal band Black Sabbath, which was released in August of 1983. It is the only album the group recorded with lead vocalist Ian Gillan, best known for his work with Deep Purple. It was also the last Black Sabbath album for nine years to feature original bassist Geezer Butler, and the last to feature drummer Bill Ward until he played a studio track on their 1998 live album Reunion
Fan excitement was high, and understandably so, when Black Sabbath unveiled their 10th album Mob Rules on Nov. 4, 1981. The previous year's Heaven and Hell had exceeded expectations by delivering Sabbath's strongest set of songs since at least 1973's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. For Iommi and Butler, all they could do in 1982 was start again, luring Ward back and securing the services of Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan for 1983's star-crossed Born Again. Compared to all this and the even more dire career downturns that followed, Mob Rules would come to be recognized as perhaps the final top-tier album recorded by heavy metal's founding fathers, and this, by definition makes it an essential release for any self-respecting head-banger.

He was waving at the people, stepped back and, bang!, he went arse over head big time. Gillan also told Birch that it was Don Arden's idea to open the show with a crying baby blaring over the speakers and a dwarf made to look exactly like the demonic baby depicted on the Born Again album cover miming to the screaming.

Just the mere fact that he is able to keep doing this for so many years proved that he is definitely one of the great guitar heroes of our time).
