Tony Iommi To Tribute Former Black Sabbath Star

(Gibson) The English city of Birmingham has been the launching pad for several major musical artists, including Steve Winwood, The Moody Blues, The Move, Electric Light Orchestra, Joan Armatrading, The Streets, members of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Duran Duran, and, of course, Black Sabbath.

The city takes the time to honor its own with the Broad Street Walk of Stars. This year's honoree is legendary drummer Bev Bevan, who was a pivotal member of both The Move and E.L.O. and later served a stint in Black Sabbath during the 1980s.

In addition to the presentation on Thursday, April 28 at the city's Gatecrasher club, there will also be a performance honoring the drummer. Among the participating artists will be Sabbath riff king Tony Iommi, as well as Move axeman Trevor Burton. more on this story
