Black Sabbath guitar legend Tony Iommi made an appearance at this year’s Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany on Friday, April 17th. He was there endorsing two new products from long term partners; a completely revamped Iommi Epiphone SG and an Iommi Laney TI15-112 combo amplifier. Both were created with huge input from Iommi.
Iommi has posted the following update:
“Thanks to everyone who came to the Frankfurt Music Show, especially super fan Rosie who traveled all the way from Italy. I’m truly sorry that I couldn’t stay longer, we had a limited time, and amazed at how many of you came. Hopefully we’ll have an opportunity to see more of you another time. Best wishes…”
Footage from Iommi’s signing session can be viewed below.
On May 4th, the first ever tribute album to Tony Iommi, entitled Great Lefty: Live Forever. Tribute To Tony Iommi Godfather Of Metal, will be released via Tanzan Music. Visit this location to hear audio samples of each of the 20 tracks that appear on the double CD set.
The compilation is an act of solidarity towards Tony from friends and fans. Profits from sales will benefit Macmillian Cancer Support. All the songs were kindly donated for the cause.
