    Inhaltsangabe

    Iron Man chronicles the story of both pioneering guitarist Tony Iommi and legendary band Black Sabbath, dubbed "The Beatles of heavy metal" by Rolling Stone. Iron Man reveals the man behind the icon yet still captures Iommi's humor, intelligence, and warmth. He speaks honestly and unflinchingly about his rough-and-tumble childhood, the accident that almost ended his career, his failed marriages, personal tragedies, battles with addiction, bandmates, famous friends, newfound daughter, and the ups and downs of his life as an artist.

    Everything associated with hard rock happened to Black Sabbath first: the drugs, the debauchery, the drinking, the dungeons, the pressure, the pain, the conquests, the company men, the contracts, the combustible drummer, the critics, the comebacks, the singers, the Stonehenge set, the music, the money, the madness, the metal.

    Great as audiobook, proper Brummie accent!

    Although not a literary masterpiece, essential for sabbath fans! Some good trivia such as what the song title NIB actually means and it's not nativiry in black. Exhaustive coverage of the confusing 80s and 90s, to be honest I'd never heard of some albums of that period! Cross Purposes??? Inspired me to listen to some of those Tony Martin era albums. Iommi claims to have held back compared to Ozzy regarding drugs but there are still enough entertaining tales to satisfy. What lifts the book is the reader Bev Bevan, another Birmingham musician and contemporary of Iommi, whose deadpan midlands accent carries the anecdotes and fits with Iommi's really quite humble personality. I first assumed Iommi was reading it himself. Slightly disappointing was the fact that Iommi doesn't offer much insight into the Sabs' dark lyrics and artwork, he doesn't appear drawn to wanting to explore where it comes from... But I guess they weren't high-concept art rockers... To be fair Butler was the lyricist and Iommi DOES explain quite a lot about his guitar technique and I enjoyed his assessments, sometimes rather direct, of his bandmates musical skills... How Ozzy would just sing the riff as a melody while RJD would sing across the riff... Also some interesting insights into his compositional techniques... All in all I'd recommend for Sabbath fans who want to complete their knowledge of the band's lesser known periods, less so for people wanting endless drugs and booze stories. I was left with a sense of admiration for Iommi's ability to keep going, despite being the only original Sab remaining at many points and the story comes nicely full circle as the book ends with them coming back together and writing new music.
