    Default Tony Iommi for an hour in a medieval chair...

    I haven't caught all of Gibson's shows, but this one caught my attention.

    Iommi is my 2nd favorite guitarist factoring in creativity, technical ability, and the music they're involved in.

    While he sort of glossed over the whole Tony Martin period, and there wasn't much playing, I love hearing the stories. I bet the outtakes were awesome.

    Ain't gonna lie, I got skeezed out by him LAUGHING through the "that time I set the drummer on fire and sent him to the hospital with severe burns" story. I assume they were all wasted at the time, but DANG!
    Up until then it was gold. I will catch the end tomorrow. Thanks for posting!

    Those English rockers are so weird how they're all even keel when they're involved in crazy shiz.

    Haha to be fair the setting on fire thing seemed to be a stunt gone wrong. Not some sadistic stuff. Also the way he laughed indicated how he felt badly at what a careless thing that he did.

    I'm also missing one of my finger tips. But it's my left thumb and doesn't hinder any of my playing. The only thing it slightly changes is how I hold a drum stick. But I don't really drum.

    He is using his weird 90s mid-rangey sound in that session. Super compressed, super distorted, and megaphony. He went back to his 'normal' Heaven & Hell sound shortly after that.

    I like it haha. I like how it's on the verge of being like a noise solo but there's incredible content and style to it.

    Thing is, when you hear Tony outside of playing a Sabbath (or in this case, a Purple song), he is really a great player. Very fast & jazzy, but he hasn't really released that kind of stuff.

    I really liked those strange violin sounding solos on Born Again. To me it just evoked images of the devil playing a violin to the damned.

    I was a weird time for his tone. He is using the most preamp gain I've ever heard him use in the later 80s till Sabbath's reunion. Born Again just sounded like cocaine to me.

    Great stuff.

    BTW, for fun... try soloing to the main Heaven & Hell (the song) solo using 666ms delay.
