2.0 out of 5 stars Great guy but a slightly pedestrian read., 1 Jan 2012
As a Black Sabbath fan and a lover of rock biographies I was looking forward to reading this. I'd read Ozzy's new book and was interested in a Tony's views, given all the splits, disputes etc and tha fact that Tony was the only long-standing member during the 'wilderness years' of Sabbath. Although there are some new stories and information for fans, the quality of the writing, in common with many biographies is pretty poor. Personally I like stories of rock and roll excess and Spinal Tap-style madness, and although he doesnt shy away from it, there arent any really eye-popping descriptions of his exploits during the 70s and 80's so I cant help but think his version of events has been sanitised. He comes across as a really nice bloke (as he does in interviews) and is fairly diplomatic when describing the personal and professional differences he had in his career.

In summary Tony Iommi is a musical legend who created Heavy Metal with his doomy tuned down power chord sound. Nothing can detract from that. However as far as his book goes, its an ok biography but if you are looking for something along the lines of 'The Dirt' by Motley or even 'White Line Fever' by Lemmy this is not for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing sound quality., 12 Aug 2009
yes they are easy to set up but the sound quality is poor. Might be ok for films and TV but as I bought them to enjoy music I consider it money wasted and will be trying to sell them back.
