  20. Best guitarist of Heavy Metal music.There with the Sabbath,every album and lineup change.His riffs are the best.I love it when he walks the stage when playing.I think he is awesome.I like his solo albums,as well.I like just about everything he has done.

  21. Dear Tony,
    Please, let me tell you that I´ve got so many memories listening to BLACK SABBATH´S music since the first time I listened to it in 1971!!! …I was just 13! … Since then I became in a devotee to what you have created! Sabbath has become in my religion!
    I receive a kind of strength and magic every time I use to turn on my pick up and listen to my beloved records.
    For a true Metal Warrior… The Eternal Idol…We all wish you well !!!
    A big hug from Raul Araujo Galoppo in Bolivia, SouthAmerica.

    I would like to hear an update on Tony`s health,I thought maybe with the march update Joe you would give us an update?So do you got any news for us?Iommi you are the Iron Man,Keep on Rockin your music is an inspiration to many guitar players.

  23. Hey Joe,

    I’m sure the issue’s been done to death (and this is not the ‘Melby’ thing), but his birth name, is listed here as Anthony Frank Iommi. It’s also possible to see a scan of the record it’s taken from.

  24. Bill Wild says

    The best Black Sabbath Album of all time
