Tony Iommi

Tony Iommi, in his own words:

"I'm saddened that a Birmingham journalist whom I trusted has chosen this point in time to take a conversation we had back in June and make it sound like we spoke yesterday about a BLACK SABBATH reunion.

"At the time I was supporting the Home Of Metal exhibition was merely speculating shooting the breeze on something all of us get asked constantly, 'Are you getting back together?'

"Thanks to the Internet it's now gone round the world as some sort of 'official' statement on my part; absolute nonsense. I hope he's enjoyed his moment of glory, he won't have another at my expense.

"To my old pals, Ozzy, Geezer and Bill, sorry about this, I should have known better." -[Blabbermouth]

Oh well! (or maybe not oh well? time will tell)

he's not saying it ain't happening though. He's just not confirming it.

What's he complaining about? Most people probably thought he was already dead before reading about this lame-o reunion.

I was on the fence about this supposed reunion myself. Part of me excited about possibly writing a concert review of the legends for my site, and the other kind of uninterested in the idea that it would be the same 8 songs I saw them do on Ozzfest a number of years ago. While it will likely never happen, I would love to see Iommi rebuild Heaven and Hell with a powerful vocalist and carry on in Ronnie's name. The material was too good to never hear again in concert that is for sure.

He's ruining it for all of us loyal fans who have waited patiently all these years for a new BS album.

Sounds like a bit of wanking to me. True fans ought to be ashamed of themselves.

I took my first business loans when I was 20 and it helped me very much. However, I require the student loan as well.
