BLACK SABBATH Guitarist Attends 'Guitar Hero II' Launch In London

According to a posting on BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi's official web site, Tony was at the Gibson Guitar Studios in London Wednesday night (Nov. 1) for the launch of the new Sony Playstation 2 game "Guitar Hero II". The game features the BLACK SABBATH track "War Pigs" and two fearless members of the event's organizing team even got up on stage to perform the track along to the game in front of the song's creator. Tony was there to see his daughter, Toni-Marie, and her band LUNARMILE, who were performing at the event.

As previously reported, Iommi and fellow original SABBATH members Geezer Butler and Bill Ward are reuniting with vocalist Ronnie James Dio, who replaced Ozzy Osbourne in the band in 1979, under the moniker HEAVEN AND HELL. The new group, named after the first post-Osbourne SABBATH album, will hit the road in early 2007. In addition, according to Ozzy, a BLACK SABBATH tour with Osbourne, Iommi, Butler and Ward will kick off late 2007 to coincide with the group's first new studio album featuring that lineup since 1978's "Never Say Die!"
