Tony Iommi is Metal and proud

The West Midlands of England is the Global home of Metal, with such inspirational acts as Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, Napalm Death, and the best of them all, Mark from Dose of Metal, hailing from the region. Because of this, the area is celebrating its  heritage and roots through a new project called “Home Of Metal”.

“Home Of Metal – Celebrating Music From Birmingham And The Black Country” is a one-of-a-kind exhibit celebrating 40 years of heavy metal and its unique birthplace. The exhibition runs until September 25 at the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery in Birmingham, England. Unfortunately, it is with great disappointment that I announce that I have not been asked to be involved 🙁 Obviously my levels of awesomeness are too high.

Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath and Heaven and Hell was recently interviewed by the BBC and had the following to say:

“Since we were so-called inventors of this music, and coming from Birmingham and all the surrounding things that are going on, it’s really great for Birmingham and it’s really great for us all,” Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi — who has been involved with the project — tells the BBC in a new podcast which can be streamed below.”
