Download Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven & Hell with Black Sabbath PDF eBookSince 1969, the legendary Black Sabbath has rocked this world with their music, dark theatrical stage performances, and many controversies—especially with someone like Ozzy Osbourne as front-man. And through all the decades, through numerous member changes, there has been one single person that always remains in the band. It is Tony Iommi, the founding guitarist of that early metal band.
In November 2011, Tony’s autobiography was released for the first time: Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven & Hell with Black Sabbath. In writing this biography, he collaborated with an experienced rock journalist and critic, T.J. Lammers. Together they recounted Iommi’s life journey starting from his hard childhood, to the day he founded a band that later dubbed “The Beatles of heavy metal” and its fame, to his addiction and how he dealt with it, his marriages, and other ups and downs in his life as a musician and also a person.
In intelligence, honest, and bold way, this autobiography manages to capture the humor and warmth of this legendary guitar player. He shares about his relationships in and out of the band—off course, including how he had to deal with Ozzy. He candidly tells about his crazy acts like doing pranks to his band mates, drinking, and drug use. The book also shows the heyday he achieved with the band, the contracts and the money he made, and all the pressure as a rock star.
*Reviews of Tony Iommi's Iron Man*
Kirkus Reviews, 10/1/11 “[Iommi is] most entertaining when describing the Sabbath’s incessant, hazardous prank-playing…The guitarist is not wholly unaware of the oft-ludicrous nature of his enterprise.”
Booklist, 11/1/11 “This memoir [is] dead certain to appeal to heavy-metal fans of all ages…With plenty of behind-the-scenes stories and fresh perspectives on some of music’s most notorious characters…this is a frank and honest look at a special part of rock history.”
Library Journal, 11/15/11 “Iommi paints an intimate portrait of his own life from childhood to his most recent musical effort in Heaven & Hell…Readers who enjoyed Joel McIver’s Sabbath Bloody Sabbath will be drawn to Iommi’s insider perspective.”
