It's too easy to forget that rock once stood for something. Not that it meant to stand for something -- the music was more an accident before people realized how much money was there. They tried things because, well, why not? Sabbath did that. They took music and stripped it of its essential pleasures, then created a new sensation. They were like a junk shop, full of odds and ends you can't find anywhere else. You take the stuff home and wonder what you're going to do with it.
