Deaf Havana – Boston Square
So this is my first submission – 
I noticed no-one had put this up yet so I decided to do it! I think my version of 
the intro riff is correct; 
it sounds the closest out of the various options I’ve tried. 
The chords are all right, and just listen for exact timings on the original; 
sometimes the chords comes in marginally before the word etc.
I hope you find this useful!
It would be great to hear any feedback you have too!

Was drinking to Phil tonight in my local where I now live, in Isle of Wight, with a rock covers band playing. They conveniently played Black Sabbath's Paranoid at the end of their set, which was Phil all over. He loved his classic metal.

A little bit about Phil, to put this into perspective (I was at school with him from 8-16 years old, and would see him most times I'd be back home from travelling):

In middle school he didn't stand out so much, but liked being a goalkeeper when playing football. He was the keeper for Dersingham B (I played in the team too) and later for Snettisham. He liked WWF when everyone was into that, and played acoustic guitar in the school guitar club. Of course he knew chords (Jimmus said on his blog that he taught Phil about guitar - it was actually the contrary.. in our music classes in year 8/9 they'd often be going at it on electric guitar, and Phil was definitely much more advanced earlier on, he could solo well before Jimmus who had only picked up guitar whilst at high school..).

At Smithdon High School, Phil, Jimmus and I were the three that grew our hair long over a few years. Phil became very confident, and seemed to be respected by everyone because not only was he so sure of being free in character/spirit, but he was also tough, and he was very likeable. Even the popular girls had a bit of respect for him, though his looks and mannerisms never made him attractive to them.
I hung out with him a lot in high school years - we were in the same playground group for a couple of years, and then I moved with a friend to another group but we were very much allies of Phil's group, which was a big and respected one (ours that we moved to was not respected much at all, being one of free spirits, outcasts, and geeks).

Phil had zero tolerance for alcohol, pretty much. One can of beer was enough for him. I think the last time I saw him, at Lifestyles festival in Hunstanton in 2010, he got rather drunk on maybe more than a can, and when we were going to Joe Tripp's house after the festival with some other friends he shouted over to a couple of chavs across the road calling them out for a fight, because he claimed they'd stared at him funny. This was Phil all over - his whole show was absolutely ripping the hell out of people and their stereotypes. You won't meet a character like Phil ever in your life.

Phil shaved his head and started wearing Reebok classics I think when he was 16. He never explained his decision - but I guess it was a statement just like why he had long hair in the first place. And I'm sure he had a lot of fun ripping it out of people as a result.

Nat Benn told me that Phil's death was so typical of him. If he'd just called up a friend he would've been fine, but because he didn't it escalated. I think Nat had seen him a couple of weeks before or so, and he was fine then.

Long live Phil :)
