  1. Hi, Tony Iommi. This is Steffan Pila. I have Mild Asberger Syndrome (Mild Autism.) I love the Black Sabbath Albums: “Master of Reality”, “Vol. 4”, “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath”, “Sabotage”, and “Technical Ecatasy.” I am a very big fan of you, Tony Iommi, because your guitar style is very similar to Ritchie Blackmore. What Interests me about you, Tony Iommi, that you joined for a Short Time with Jethro Tull & Ian Anderson. That Was A Very Positive Experience for you, even though you didn’t like the direction Jethro Tull was going in. Thank you, Tony Iommi and have a Good Evening. Thank you, Steffan Pila.

  2. I hope that with the launch of the Tony Martin’s era boxset will be released a compilation of this albums for the people like me that doesn’t have much money & space to the full boxset.
    Essential songs like “Anno Mundi”, “Headless Cross”, “Black Moon”…
    Very excited for this releasing.

    • Reading your book presently, have just finished Ozzie’s and Geezers. Witnessed B.S. in both versions with Ozzy and Ronnie.
      Been a fan forever going back to 8 track days.
      I’m curious, is Hand of Doom box set available for me to purchase?
      Wish you the best of health and keep on trucking.
