KTRU Tuesdays: Black Sabbath

On August 23rd, 1975, Black Sabbath visited Houston and played at the Sam Houston Coliseum. This is Bruce Kessler’s interview with Tony Iommi, the band’s lead guitarist. For those who need a bit of a brush up on their Black Sabbath history, the band members in 1975 were Bill Ward, Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, and Geezer Butler, the original line-up.

Kessler talks to Iommi about themes on the early albums, their music’s popularity, the band’s hiatus, solo albums, touring, and fans.

Be aware that the audio quality of this interview is poor.
