4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The name 'Tony Iommi' sends shivers down the spines of guitarists around the world.

As lead guitarist and songwriter of Black Sabbath, Tony Iommi is considered to be one of the most influential musicians of the past four decades and the inventor of heavy metal.

From working class, Midlands roots, his unique playing style - a result of a disfiguring hand injury he suffered working in a sheet metal factory - created a dark and gothic sound unlike anything that had been heard before and which captured the mood of its time.

Sabbath went on to become a superband, playing to massive audiences around the world and selling millions of records, and Iommi led the life of a rockstar to the fullest - with the scars from all the drug-fuelled nights of excess and wildness to show for it.

In Iron Man, Iommi goes on the record about Black Sabbath and recounts his life story in detail and depth.

It is the exclusive account of the life and adventures of one of rock's greatest heroes.

Review by

The autobiography of the man who invented heavy metal. The life of Tony Iommi from the humble beginning, the high-and-lows of the Black Sabbath story to the present days with the hopefully happy reunion and a frightening disease. If you like Black Sabbath, if you like heavy metal, read the book of the Iron Man!
