(Classic Rock) Deep Purple's official YouTube channel have released a live clip of Ian Gillan fronting Black Sabbath in 1983. Gillan replaced Ronnie James Dio is the lineup that year and went on to record Born Again with Sabbath - the only album to feature the Deep Purple man.

In the archive video, Gillan is joined onstage by guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bev Bevan and play the tracks Digital Bitch and Zero The Hero.

Black Sabbath are gearing up for the remaining dates on The End tour, which will wrap up with two shows in their hometown of Birmingham in early February. However, Iommi recently said he hasn't ruled out the chance of festival appearances at some point in the future.

He said: "I wouldn't write that off, if one day that came about. That's possible.

"Or even doing an album, because then you're in one place. But I don't know if that would happen." here.
