Tony Iommi on Writing Again: ‘There’s Some Great Ideas Coming Out’
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi can’t be stopped, even at the age of 62 years young. The guitarist told Metal Hammer that he has been experiencing a creative surge and is applying it to the next phase of his career — even though he’s not quite sure what the end result will be. Iommi said he will soon begin working with his longtime cohort, Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, and that they have been in touch.
Iommi admitted that he has “gone mad” and created a “load of riffs.” However, it has yet to be determined where this load of riffs will be used and in what capacity.
“I don’t normally say this, but there’s some great ideas coming out,” Iommi said.
