Walking Tall

When I met Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath in March 1986 in Stockholm, I asked him to sign a notebook (with a very cool cover) called “Original Black Sabbath” (Amsco Publications, 1985), written by Steve Tarshis. I quite enjoy it, it sports some good pictures and I was curious about Tonys opinion on the book. He said,

– This is like a bootleg job. One of the pictures shows me with a black eye. I got that in a fight with a bunch of skinheads that Geezer started. I recall that Ozzy hit somebody in the head with a bottle. Apart for that picture I can´t recommend the book to anybody.

I like that story.

Black Sabbath, walking tall, taking no bullshit from anybody.
