We need more vintage studio photos of dotted acoustic tile. It will explain everything. (Or prove our collective insanity.)
Latest single from Druckman Bros. here

I was a bigger fan of his leopard print shirt with the huge scoop neck, than the ceiling tiles. They just don't make cuts like that for men these days, especially in such a flattering pattern. No...no...these days our chest hair is forced to live in a world hidden from eyesite draped in a poly/cotton blend.

Not to hi-jack the thread but for what it's worth, Bill Ward said he never was in love with his drum sound on any Black Sabbath record.

He also started using a mix of drums around 73 or so. He'd like a tom on one drum and the floor tom of another, etc.

He also lived in a tent with his girlfriend in Ozzy's backyard for a while.

Hope this helps.

Even though the drum sound 'worked' for the Sabbath stuff, IMO it didn't sound very good.
