Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Reflects on Ronnie James Dio and Looks To The Future

(Rock News Desk) Tony Iommi admits he's had a hard time dealing with the death of Heaven and Hell bandmate Ronnie James Dio. But after a year of mourning the guitarist is ready to move forward with his life � and he says he has a lot on his plate.

The Black Sabbath icon tells Linearock: "I can't believe a year has gone by so quickly. There was a lot of grief and upset, because we shared a lot of life together. When somebody goes that quick it's very much of a shock � and I can't tell you how sad the whole thing's been.

"It took a long time to let it go. But Ronnie's got a great legacy." Iommi has been working on his book, Iron Man: My Life with Black Sabbath and Beyond, and adds he has a type of freedom in his music career he didn't previously enjoy. more on this story
