In a video posted online on Thursday, the man who played guitar in the band Black Sabbath, Paul McCartney, has been awarded a record-breaking $1 million prize for his song “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
In the video, posted by a group called Black Sabbath Fans, McCartney is shown playing his song, titled “A Day at the Races,” which was released in 1971, on the cover of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
The video then goes on to feature the band performing “The White Album,” which is their only album of that name to be released in the United States.
Black Sabbath fans say the video is one of the most compelling and engaging videos they’ve seen in years.
They say it shows the songwriter’s ability to make music that’s as powerful as the music itself, as well as how it’s played and performed.
They’ve also taken to the video to promote the upcoming release of the band’s fourth album, “Dark Side of the Moon.”
In March, a jury awarded $5 million to Black Sabbath fans after a trial that lasted for more than two weeks.
The band had previously been awarded $1.5 million for its “Darkness on the Edge of Town” video in 2009, which also featured the music of The Beatles and Bob Dylan.
