With so many shows (Judas Priest, Anthrax, Megadeth) and events (Ozzy book signing, That Metal Show, Black Sabbath Reunion Annoucement), I hadn’t had a chance to read the new Tony Iommi book “Iron Man: My Journey through Heaven and Hell with Black Sabbath” from De Capo press until now.
Formed in 1969 by Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill ward, Black Sabbath became one of the biggest bands in the history of Rock and Metal. Iommi’s book covers Black Sabbath from the early days in their native Birmingham, England to the height of their careers, including all the drug use and band in-fighting that went with it. From Ozzy being fired by his bandmates to Iommi getting arrested in Modesto, California for not paying child support, I found this book an interesting read and for Black Sabbath fans, a must have.
Thanks to Tony Iommi for signing my copy at the recent press conference in Hollywood on 11-11-11, the day Black Sabbath announced they will reunite for a tour and new album in 2012.
