Tony Iommi Honored At The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund's 2nd Awards Gala; New Video Interview Posted

Guitarist Tony Iommi on stage during the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer

Fund's 2nd Awards Gala held at Avalon on October 31, 2012 in Hollywood, California. Tony

Iommi was crowned the "King of Rock n Roll", with various other members of the Hard Rock

and Metal community set receive accolades at event.

Also watch this VERY interessting video interview with Tony, talking the recording of the new

 album - and Bill Ward:

Tony Iommi on reports that he has laid down guitar tracks on 15 new Black Sabbath songs in the studio:

Iommi: "That's wrong. When Ozzy said it, I think he meant what we've done. We've written 15 songs and we've played them all. But now, at the moment, we're recording them. We recorded them at my house first, in England, just as demos, but now we're doing them for real. So we're about six tracks in now, at the moment."

On Rick Rubin's approach to producing:

Iommi: "Well, he's just a vibe merchant, really. He vibes you up. He's not one that gets involved hands on. He leaves it to you to do it, and he sort of says, 'I like it,' or 'I don't like it.'"

On whether he would like to see original drummer Bill Ward back in Black Sabbath:

Iommi: "We'll always have a heart for Bill, but I think it's gone past that now, because it's gone on so long that I don't see that happening at the moment. Maybe at some point we might [play together again]."
