Black Sabbath Guitar Legend Tony Iommi To Release Autobiography This Fall

 Black Sabbath guitar legend Tony Iommi, regarded as one of the founders of heavy metal,  is set to release his autobiography. Entitled  'Black Sabbath And Beyond', the book will be released on October 13th in the UK (via Simon & Schuster) and November 1st in the US (by Da Capo Press). An Amazon pre-order is available below.

According to a book description: "Iron Man chronicles the story of both pioneering guitarist Tony Iommi and legendary band Black Sabbath. 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, band mates, 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."

According to Black Sabbath fan-site Black-Sabbath.com, the book is not completed and the release date(s) may change.
