An Update from Tony

» Posted on Oct 29, 2014 | 16 comments

People have been asking what exactly I’m doing at the moment, we’ll I’m getting back in the studio having tried to make myself rest after the tours.  I’m writing, mostly just putting ideas down rather than complete songs. I like to create all sorts of moods with my music and then decide later how they might be used.

One specific piece though is for the CSI TV series that will be aired in the US on November 2nd. I was asked if I’d be interested so I had a look at the footage and came up with an idea they seemed to like. It’s not very long but it was different working with images rather than just music, I’d certainly be up for doing more.

UPDATE:  After posting this story, the episode with my music has been changed to November 9th.  Here is the update we received from the show’s producer:

“Due to an NFL football game Sunday that went long, they pushed our schedule a week later. No big deal but the show airs Nov 9th here in the states.”


Apologies, seems they did it to us again and bumped CSI back another week! I’ve been assured it will be broadcast on November 16th, more updates if needed.

I’m glad your feeling better. I’ve seen you in concert so many times I’ve lost count. You share the stage with some of the greatest musicians to ever play. Ozzy (The King of Rock and Roll), Geezer, Bill, and of course the greatest rock singer ever…Mr. Ronnie James Dio. We love you. Thank you!!

  16. Tony,

    First of all, just want to let you know that you resemble my dad. Even your hands look alike.

    Anyway, I finally purchased a Gibson SG. It’s a midnigt blue, 120th Anniversary SG standard with the Mini E-tune. And of course, I bought it because of you.
    It’s only missing one thing though, your autograph.

    I have my eyes on the Laney TI-110 and a 4×12 cabinet which I plan to purchase once I finish paying off the SG.

    Thank you for a lifetime of hair rasing power cords and melodic lead solos which never seem to age no matter how many times I listen to Sabbath’s songs.

    Take care of yourself and may the Lord look after you always!
    Moises Caraballo
