BLACK SABBATH's TONY IOMMI: 'RONNIE JAMES DIO Deserves A Bit More Credit'

July 4, 2004

In a recent interview with Guitar World magazine, BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi talked about the Ronnie James Dio-era SABBATH albums. "I'm really satisfied with them," he said. "No disrespect to Ozzy, but I think it's a shame that they've been buried by all the Ozzy stuff. I think they're good albums, and I think Dio deserves a bit more credit than what he did get. He rarely gets mentioned when people talk about the band. Same with Tony Martin."

Iommi is currently working on another solo album and performing this summer at Ozzfest with original SABBATH members Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward.
