Romeo Challenger – Black Widow

Formed in 1969, Black Widow were primarily renowned for their use of satanic and occult imagery, opening their spot with a banned track “Come to the Sabbat” at six o’clock on the Thursday evening. Despite taming their act down in anticipation of success, their future plans with CBS were put on hold whilst the record company concentrated on promoting Simon and Garfunkle’s new track, “Bridge over Troubled Water”. Later, a trip to the States resulted in their road crew absconding to join the Black Sabbath troop.
Romeo Challenger, who was born 19th May 1950 in Antigua, later achieved fame with pop band Showaddywaddy.
