bloody hammer

ACC has never been a Black Sabbath fan but still, i'm getting a kick out of Tony Iommi's audiobook Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven and Hell with Black Sabbath , narrated by Bev Bevan. Naturally there r the generic but hilarious stories, sort of like a template for band stories...get really drunk, cut off the pantlegs of your bandmate's jeans while he is passed out/get really drunk, intentionally drop Ozzy off at the wrong house after the show/get really drunk, accidentally hit the guy behind u with the swing of a hammer, etc. The funny thing about dropping Ozzy off at the wrong house is, they did it 5 times before Oz figured out it was a prank.
One of my favorite bits: a guy falsely claimed that he was Tony's son, and another band made a song about it titled "Practicing to be Tony Iommi."
I never get tired of reading band bios.
Still no tour or shows or anything...2busy exercising.
