Happy Birthday Sean Bean! Bean was born in Handsworth, Sheffield, England on April 17, 1959. The film, television and stage actor is most well known for his roles in Sharpe television dramas, and the 'The Lord Of The Rings' and 'Red Riding' (watch trailers) film trilogies.
For this 'Today's Tune', we look back at 2010's 14th century historical horror film, 'Black Death'. Obviously, the movie involves the bubonic plague epidemic, but is there something else going on too? Matching up best with this one is "When Death Calls", from Black Sabbath's 'Headless Cross', which was originally released in April of 1989.
The studio track includes a solo by Queen's Brian May, the first time another guitarist had featured on a Black Sabbath studio album. Geoff Nicholls played keyboards, and the band members at the time were Tony Martin (Lead vocals), Tony Iommi (Guitar), Cozy Powell (Drums) and Laurence Cottle (Bass).
