Today's Tune: "The Wizard" By Black Sabbath

Happy Birthday Robbie Coltrane! Coltrane, born Anthony Robert McMillan on March 30, 1950, is a Scottish actor, comedian and author. He is well known by many for his role as Dr Eddie "Fitz" Fitzgerald in the brilliantly done British TV crime drama series Cracker (1993–1996, 2006 one-off special). Coltrane is mostly thought of these days however, as Rubeus Hagrid, from his appearances throughout the entire magical series (2001–2011) of 'Harry Potter' films.

Before he worked in the 'Harry Potter' films, he had another role, where he actually had some magical power of his own. In the 1988 special holiday television episode of hilarious comedy series Blackadder, called Blackadder's Christmas Carol, he played the part of The Spirit of Christmas.

With this character in mind, as well as his taking part in movies (Harry Potter) about wizards, our 'Today's Tune' is "The Wizard" (1970) by England's Black Sabbath.

Awesome tune, but then again, you can't go wrong with Sabbath. Plus you worked in a reference to Black Adder? Dang, you're good. That was such a great show. And not just because of Rowan Atkinson. The whole group of them were great together. Awesome post!
