    Black Sabbath fans in their hometown of Birmingham, England have a chance to hear their first two albums in the spot where the band got started.

    Rob Horrocks, whose Crossroads of Sabbath walking tour has been a popular attraction in the city, will lead a group of 50 fans on Sunday in listening to Sabbath's first two albums in the room at the Newtown Community Centre where the members first starting playing together.

    Horrocks tells the Birmingham Mail, "With the 45th anniversary of 'Paranoid' coming up, I decided to do an event to raise the profile of the location as a site of relevance in the Black Sabbath story. I love the idea that all those years ago the lads booked the room and what they did there ended up being relevant in the music scene for years to come. And to this day, anyone can still book the room for similar pursuits."
