    Default Iommi Highest Paid Guitarist In The World

    https://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=AwrD...p6Moe0yNarVQ0-

    The British guitarist has an estimated net worth of $245 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Iommi Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Birmingham Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderiommi - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Tony) and a fashion line called “Tony Iommi Seduction”.

    Not bad he's worth more than Ozzy, who would've thought?

    He's made all these millions from Doc and OID living on a diet consisting entirely of Iommiburgers and Iommivodka.
    Their wives have closets full of "with love from Tony" and "Iommi seduction".

    In fact, I'm pretty sure Doc drinks the perfumes too!

    Big turnaround from when he had to sell his soul to Sharon for $75,000 to stay out of gaol for unpaid child support in the mid 90s!

    Big turnaround indeed and he's worth more than Ozzy, which is a surprise to me.

    Well, the article is obviously fake so Ozzy's probably still worth more.

    In the 1950s, the European underground music scene was beginning to change. Music started introducing more guttural guitars and thrash sounds, with the lyrics changing drastically. From singing about the love for one’s family, the subject of songs changed to more desperate and dangerous ideas. The music tackled and embraced the darker side of life.
