Sabbath Feeling The Blues
Black Sabbath’s days as a touring band may be finished, but the band is far from done. Last week we learned that Black Sabbath were working on a Blues album that could still see the light of day at some point, and now Tony Iommi has revealed in an interview with NBC News, the piece is primarily about a choral composition he recorded for a church in his hometown of Birmingham, England and that a live album and film documenting the band’s farewell tour are in the works: “We’ll actually be doing a documentary,” he said. “My job at the moment is to have a listen to what we’ve done.”
Iommi says he also he says he has “bags” of riffs he came up with for Black Sabbath that might one day wind up on a solo album. So that could be something for Sabbath fans to look forward to sooner rather than later. And there’s always that choral composition, too, on which Iommi plays acoustic guitar.
