Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Has Treasure Trove Of Unreleased Songs

(hennemusic) Last week, Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi revealed that he 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 Malm�, Sweden. The identity of the song's composers � Iommi (music) and Vardan Zadoyan (lyrics) � had been kept secret for a while. Now, Iommi tells the Birmingham Mail, "I've plenty more where that one came from."

The guitarist has a treasure trove of tracks he has written over the years, but which he has no intention of recording himself, either with Sabbath or on a solo album.

"I write loads of songs and they just get put away. They lie on a shelf because either they're not suitable for Sabbath or for another project, and never see the light of day. I searched out 'Lonely Planet' � it's a bit of a power ballad � and sent it off." more on this story
