    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.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to any fan of Black Sabbath or of heavy metal in general. Tony Iommi's riffs and songwriting are the backbone of heavy metal itself. It's great to hear the back stories about each CD and chapter in the entire Black Sabbath history.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the detail, examining each album and its recording, tour, etc. I also like how candid Tony is about his cancer (lymphoma), and the detail he goes into about the treatment, how it as affected him, etc.


    What does Bev Bevan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked the fact that Bev, who is a friend of Tony's and also played in Black Sabbath, read this book. He knows Tony well, and it's easy to imagine that it is Tony himself reading the book. Bev, I'm sure, knows many of these stories, and his familiarity, I believe, helps his credibility as a narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    It's surprisingly funny! The pranks they used to play on each other (especially on drummer Bill Ward) are laugh-out-loud funny.
