BLACK SABBATH's TONY IOMMI Performs At BEV BEVAN's 'Walk Of Stars' Ceremony

According to, legendary BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi is among the musicians who joined former BLACK SABBATH/ELO drummer Bev Bevan on stage last night (Thursday, April 28) at Birmingham, England's Gatecrasher club.

Bevan was the 22nd celebrity honored on the Broad Street Walk Of Stars in Birmingham, England.

Iommi, comedian Jasper Carrott, guitarist Trevor Burton and rock and roller Raymond Froggatt were on stage at the Broad Street club, following the presentation.

The all-star lineup played a "hit-packed" set featuring songs from Bev's career such as MOVE rockers "Fire Brigade", "Flowers In The Rain" and "California Man". They also belted out a host of classics like "Summertime Blues" and "Go Now", the chart-topping ballad by Birmingham band THE MOODY BLUES.

Bevan (born Beverley Bevan on November 24, 1944 in Sparkhill, Birmingham, England) was one of the original members of THE MOVE and the ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA. After the collapse of ELO in 1986, he founded ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA PART II without the original ELO singer/songwriter Jeff Lynne.

Broad Street's Walk of Stars honors those who have made a significant contribution in music, television, film, radio, theatre, sport, business and literature and is run by the Broad Street Business Improvement District.

On July 6, 2007, Ozzy Osbourne became the first artist to be honored on Birmingham, England's own Hollywood-style Walk of Stars in the city's Broad Street / Centenary Square. Ozzy's SABBATH bandmate Tony Iommi received his own star in November 2008.
