Life After Black Sabbath

It was February of last year that legendary metal band Black Sabbath played their final show in Birmingham, England. After a nearly 50-year career, Black Sabbath went down in history as one of the all-time greatest bands ever.

During a recent interview with The Midland Rocks, Tony Iommi talked about what he’d like to do now that Black Sabbath are done. Here is what he had to say…

“Music-wise, I would certainly like to start writing again, but at the moment I’m doing a lot of stuff for charities; Heartlands Hospital, which is part of the Heart Of England Foundation Trust, and also Wythall Animal Sanctuary, and both of those are very dear to me. I just try and help where I can, and with the Hospital Trust, at the moment we are trying to raise some money to buy some beds for the chemo patients. And so that is something that I very much like to be involved with. You see, the nurses and the doctors, they work so hard and they don’t get a lot of credit for it and when you’re in there, they are all so committed and it sparks me off, and so that’s what I’ve been spending some of my time doing.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m sure as hell excited about possibly hearing some new music from Tony Iommi. He is, after all, the creator of heavy metal!
