The Tony Iommi Tapes, 1984: talking about a second Black Sabbath album with Ian Gillan

A few days ago I posted a blog that featured a snippet from my 1984 interview with Tony Iommi, in which he talked about blowing up Black Sabbath singer Ian Gillan’s boat during the recording sessions for Born Again.

As any Sabbath fan knows, the band only made one album with Gillan at the mic–and it’s probably just as well. But at the time Iommi had high hopes for a followup, and I caught him on tape ruminating on how it would be better than Born Again.

Have a listen:
