BLACK SABBATH guitarist TONY IOMMI is "pleased to announce that the paperback version of my autobiography is released in the UK this week – Thursday 8th November. For those of you in the USA, I'm afraid it's not until December 11th. It's got new chapters bringing everything up to date including my battle with lymphoma."
Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven & Hell With Black Sabbath was originally released as a hardcover book in November 2011.
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.
