I was emailed over the weekend by someone who sent me a link to a book on Amazon’s UK site, which says it is Tony Iommi’s memoirs book. It’s been known for some time now that he was working on one. I looked, and it’s on the Amazon US site, too. The UK site is listing a release date of October 13, 2011, and the US site is listing a date of November 1, 2011. From what I can gather, those dates are suspect. Read below.
From what I can gather, the book should be all inclusive, although we’ve had no official word as to contents yet. I’ll be QUITE interested to see what level of detail comes from this. Will he address things like Fenholt, Ron Keel, and what really happened with Iron Maiden and the eggs on Ozzfest 2005?
Anyway, today I inquired with Tony’s manager about the link at Amazon UK’s site. From what he told me, I can pass along these factoids..
- The title of the book is indeed, “Iron Man: My Life with Black Sabbath and Beyond”.
- The release dates on Amazon’s US & UK websites are presumptuous, because…
- The book has not yet been completed.
So basically, this news is to say that the release date is still “unknown” due to the book not yet having been completed. Once I get some more solid info than this, I’ll be sure to pass it along.
