Tony Iommi To Release Paperback Edition Of Iron Man Memoir

A paperback version of Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi's memoir, Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven And Hell With Black Sabbath, will be released December 11 via Da Capo Press/Perseus Books.

"It's got new chapters bringing everything up to date, including my battle with lymphoma," Iommi states.

"I had a chap called TJ Lammers, who I met many, many years ago when he used to work at Phonogram Records," Iommi told Guitar World of the making of first edition of the book.

"He later became a journalist and he had his own magazine. He lives in Holland and we've stayed in touch over the years. I've had a few people say, 'Oh, I can write a book for you,' . . . He came over to England and stayed with me for a few days. Then he'd write it up, come back again and do more. The whole thing took a couple years to finish."

Iron Man was initially released in November 2011.
