British boot maker Dr. Martens has teamed up with Black Sabbath for a new collection of boots.
The first collaboration between the much-lauded footwear manufacturers and the “godfathers of heavy metal” celebrates Black Sabbath and Paranoid’s 50th anniversaries, and shine the spotlight on Keith “Keef” Macmillan’s equally hard-hitting artwork.
The Dr. Martens X Black Sabbath collection lands on October 1. The boots feature McMillan’s artwork printed over the 1460 8-Eye Black Susan combat boot. A statement reads: Before there was metal, there was Black Sabbath. It’s been 50 years since their groundbreaking debut records crash-landed onto the music scene. And changed the course of rock history. In our first collaboration with the ‘godfathers of heavy metal’, we celebrate Black Sabbath and Paranoid’s 50th anniversaries.

Elsewhere in Ozzy Osbourne-related news, a new interview with the Osbournes in Rolling Stone recently revealed that an Osbourne biopic is on the cards. However, the film will skip Ozzy’s original tenure in Black Sabbath and will go ahead to when he left the band in the late 1970s and began dating Sharon.
“We have a writer,” Jack Osbourne said about the progress on the film. “We said to go from 1979 to 1996. I can’t say too much, but the film is in active development.”
“From what I understand, it’s about Sharon and I and our relationship,” Ozzy added. “It’s how we met, fell in love, and how we married. She’s my other half. She grew up a lot with me, and I grew up a lot with her.”
Ozzy then also revealed that “Sharon wants to get an unknown actor” to play him in the film.
Another film about Ozzy, a documentary called Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne recently premiered in the USA on September 7. The film features interviews with Marilyn Manson, Post Malone, Rob Zombie and many more.
