(hennemusic) Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi is the man behind Armenia's song entry into the Eurovision song contest.
Dorians frontman Gor Sujyan's "Lonely Planet" was selected at a Saturday, March 2 national vote to be performed at Eurovision in Malmφ, Sweden. The identity of the song's composers Iommi (music) and Vardan Zadoyan (lyrics) had been kept secret for a while.
"Well here's something different, one of my demo ideas has been chosen as the Armenian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest!," wrote Iommi. "It went on a short list and Saturday night was voted as the winner. I did the music and the performing band Dorians wrote the lyrics, it's called 'Lonely Planet'. They're a good band, the singer has a really good voice and the lyrics they've written are in English. It now goes to the semi-final on May 16th in Malmo, Sweden." more on this story
