From his facebook page yesterday:

"Here is a track I composed for Birmingham Cathedral St Philip's, featuring contributions from the Birmingham Cathedral Choir and words selected by the Very Reverend Catherine Ogle, Dean of Birmingham. This is my way of giving back to Birmingham.

You can watch the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5r-9-5T93N8

You can download an mp3 of the song at the Cathedral website here: http://www.birminghamcathedral.com/news/

Finally, there is a story about the song here: http://www.classicfm.com/…/black-sabbath-tony-iommi-how-g…/…  "

    It's strange, after the first 10 seconds or so, I almost expected to hear Ronnie starting to sing at any moment...  
    I wish Tony would make some kind of solo album.

    I wish he'd get Tony Martin and Bill Ward and make a kickass Black Sabbath album...

    Yeah, at some point, the drums need to thunder in with a heavy riff, and RJD needs to start singing. 
    The only guy in Boston who knows what that thing sticking out of the left side of the steering column is for.

    I suppose he'd have to call the band "Eternal Idol" instead of "Black Sabbath", then.

    Well, maybe now he will start a new side project ...only 9 Sabbath dates left and his throat issue looks good.

    BLACK SABBATH Guitarist TONY IOMMI Learns That Lump In His Throat Wasn’t Cancerous - “I Found Out On Christmas Day.

    Back in December, Tony broke the news that doctors discovered new activity in his throat and they were unsure whether the lump was cancerous until he went under the knife. Speaking to Wyatt to promote the choral arrangement he has penned for Birmingham Cathedral, Tony said he received the ultimate gift when he was told on Christmas Day that the lump wasn’t cancerous.

    “Well, I had the treatment when I got back from South America,” Tony told Wyatt. “I went in for the throat (operation) – they found a lump at the back of my sinus in the throat and we had to have it checked in case, it may have been cancerous. But it turns out it wasn’t, which I found out on Christmas Day which is brilliant! So far (I’m all good). I daren’t say that I’ll probably fall down the stairs now!”

    Love it. I'm glad it didn't get heavy.

    Cool.  I kept waiting for the loud part tho!  Kinda needs an "Into the Void" kinda riff to kick off the follow up track...

    THIS IS A VERY GREAT IDEA!

    And this is up there with the best of what Iommi's done in this century imo.

    That's funny as hell.

    But it's Sharon that is the problem when it comes to the name isn't it? I don't give a shit what the law or contracts or whatever say, Tony is Black Sabbath and everyone knows that.
