Tony Iommi

If you were to give a shortlist of the greatest guitarists in rock n' roll, I am sure that names like Pete Townsend, Keith Richards, and Jimi Hendrix would be on the tip of everyone's tongue. Tony Iommi should probably be named in the same breath. The guitarist helped to create a genre and a movement with his work as axeman in Black Sabbath, and Heaven & Hell (aka Black Sabbath), and as a solo artist.

Tony Iommi swung by Brooklyn metal venue Saint Vitus from 3-4pm on the afternoon of Thursday, 11/3 (same day the unrelated Of Stardust event) to sign copies of his new book Iron Man. Pictures from the event are in this post and continue, along with a video of Tony answering fan questions two days earlier via Livestream, below...
