Tony Iommi & Tom Jones Making Music Together?

LONDON, ENGLAND - JULY 04: Tommy Iommi attends the Nordoff Robbins 02 Silver Clef awards at London Hilton on July 4, 2014 in London, England. SANTA MONICA, CA - APRIL 16: Singer Tom Jones attends Boxing at Barker presented by Budweiser at Barkar Hangar on April 16, 2014 in Santa Monica, California.

Talk about an “unusual” pairing!

Tony Iommi spoke with Classic Rock Magazine recently about a fake news story that surfaced in the 80’s about how Tom Jones was joining Black Sabbath to take part in a concept album.  Turns out that Iommi and Jones are actually friends and some sort of collaboration wouldn’t be unheard of.

“I like Tom, he's good.  I'd actually like to do something with him. It could work,”
said Iommi.

Hmmm…this duo almost makes that potential Rob Halford/Lady Gaga collaboration seem normal!

Whether or not a recording from Iommi and Jones will become a reality is yet to be determined, but if they could somehow recruit Alfonso Ribeiro for a little backup dancing, then I’m all in!
