"Neon Knights" is a song by British heavy metal band Black Sabbath from 1980's Heaven and Hell, their first album with American vocalist Ronnie James Dio.

Overview[edit source | editbeta]Edit

"Neon Knights" was the last song written by the band for the Heaven and Hell album.[1] It was quickly written and recorded at Studio Ferber in Paris simply to fill time on the album's first side.[1] The lyrics were written by Dio. It is the only song on Heaven and Hell to definitely feature songwriting input from bassist Geezer Butler, the band's main lyricist during the Ozzy Osbourne era. Butler was absent for most of the songwriting process due to his own uncertainty as to whether he wanted to remain in the band.
