One of the blabbermouth posters said "I'll bet 25 bucks that this is bullshit." I'm kinda siding with him.

That said, this would be awesome if it happened. I'm kinda surprised they didn't ask Vinnie Appice to drum.

I know, but stranger things have happened. Maybe they could headline OzzFest next year!

If this is true then that will be the highlight of next year for me but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Guys, don't hate me if I'm wrong, but I think this might actually be true. From what I "hear" we may know more later today.

Edit: It sounds like legal reasons have nothing to do with the name either. They're not considering this Sabbath, Dio doesn't want to play with Sabbath, etc. etc. My personal hope is this will free them of feeling like they need to play "War Pigs" and the like.

Enh. That's why I think Dio is better off with his own solo band. Then you can hear all three anyway. You didn't hear Black Sabbath play Crazy Train while Ozzy was in the band did you?

No, but I don't really like Ozzy anyway, so I don't think it sucking would break my heart.

A few remarks by me (Joe Siegler - http://www.black-sabbath.com)
on all this:

Today was not the first time I had heard these rumours. Running this site I hear all kinds of things, and generally I tend to discount them - but this one had some more weight to it, so I decided to do some poking around on my own. While I can't get anyone to officially say anything about this, it does seem to have the air of an authentic story to me. Heck, I can't get any official word about who is even playing on the new tracks for the Dio Years set, besides Iommi & Dio. One would hope it's the same four guys (Iommi/Butler/Ward/Dio), but I can't get official confirmation of that one, either.
So it's known that the Dio Years box set is happening. When - who knows, although I would imagine sooner rather than later. What the contents of the set are is also officially unknown. I've been hearing some rumours about specific content, but I don't really want to spread any more FUD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FUD) about that issue, so I'll leave that out for now. Suffice it to say if what I heard is true, fans will really like it.
The other issue I wanted to say something about was the bit about legally not being able to call themselves Black Sabbath. A few points about this.. Ronnie has stated on many interviews and on his website that he would not be rejoining Black Sabbath. Assuming you take that as true, the rumour I heard that it was a choice to call themselves Heaven & Hell and not Black Sabbath should be taken as correct. The other side to that is the ownership of "Black Sabbath". It's always been my knowledge that in the mid 80's Tony Iommi bought all the rights, and to this day retains such ownership. There was a lot of stories that in order to get Ozzy to come back in 1997, some of that ownership would have to be given to the Osbournes. Now I want to say this. I am a fan. A somewhat connected fan, but I still am a fan. I'm an idiot if I think I know everything - I do not. But I do pay attention, and I have never seen anything that tells me that the ownership situation of "Black Sabbath" has changed. My educated guess tells me that this bit about legally not being able to use the name Black Sabbath is incorrect, that it's a choice to do that. If I hear anything factually to counteract that, I will retract my opinion here.
Having said all this stuff, this is a very exciting possibility. To sum up:
Known facts:

There will be a "Black Sabbath: The Dio Years" box set.
Said box set will contain at least two newly recorded tracks.
Tony & Ronnie collaborated on the newly recorded tracks.Rumours/Speculation:
These are all unconfirmed - so don't take it as fact, eh? :)

Geezer Butler & Bill Ward will comprise the rhythm section on the new tracks.
Iommi/Butler/Ward/Dio will tour in 2007 as "Heaven & Hell".
They are not billing themselves as "Black Sabbath" due to legal reasons.
The Dio Years set may include the video mentioned by Dio on the Live Evil recordings.Hopefully I can get some official confirmation about this stuff now that the "word is out" so to speak. I do work for Bill Ward & Geezer Butler, and am fairly friendly with Tony Iommi's people, so hopefully I can find out something I can officially talk about. The only "official" things are the three things listed above as "facts". The rest is speculation. I hope it's all true. And if they do tour, they'd better come to Dallas, dammit! :)
Hmm... Dio replaced Ozzy back in 1979, and now it's (in a fashion) being done again in 2007. Does this mean that a TV show with Ronnie going "WENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNDY, the dog crapped on the carpet again!" is far behind? ;)

This would be amazingly awesome. I love Dio's Sabbath stuff and Iommi is one of if not the best guitarist Dio has worked with, at least since the mid 80's.

Vinny Appice should play drums.

Iron Man with Dio kills the original.

Dehumanizer better be well represented.

Besides Iron Man they shouldn't play original Sabbath.

:rocker: :horns:
