If you remember, there was some promotion with the CBS TV show, CSI where Black Sabbath played (mimed) in the episode, and Ozzy had a short speaking role. Anyway, they must have remembered this, as Tony Iommi recently announced that a short music composition of his will appear in the November 9th episode of the series. Make sure and check it out when it airs in a week and a half or so. :)
Originally, Tony announced it as this Sunday, November 2nd, but it was changed to November 9th. Here is Tony’s complete announcement:
People have been asking what exactly I’m doing at the moment, we’ll I’m getting back in the studio having tried to make myself rest after the tours. I’m writing, mostly just putting ideas down rather than complete songs. I like to create all sorts of moods with my music and then decide later how they might be used.
One specific piece though is for the CSI TV series that will be aired in the US on November 2nd. I was asked if I’d be interested so I had a look at the footage and came up with an idea they seemed to like. It’s not very long but it was different working with images rather than just music, I’d certainly be up for doing more.
UPDATE: After posting this story, the episode with my music has been changed to November 9th. Here is the update we received from the show’s producer:
“Due to an NFL football game Sunday that went long, they pushed our schedule a week later. No big deal but the show airs Nov 9th here in the states.”
