Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Reacts To Strange Rick Rubin Experience

(Classic Rock) Tony Iommi has recalled the strange experience of working with producer Rick Rubin on the forthcoming new Black Sabbath reunion album, "13."

The guitarist � who recently explained why he pulled the plug on reunion talks with Bill Ward � says: "I didn't quite know what to make of Rick at first.

"His whole idea was, 'Write the song. Call me when you think it's ready.' So I would. Actually, I'd email him, because I couldn't phone him � nobody phones him. So I'd email him: 'Do you want to come down tonight?' And he'd pop in, have a listen, go, 'Yeah, I like that,' or, 'I don't like it.'

"We wanted him to be more involved but he was this elusive guy that we never really saw. But when we started recording, he was there all the time, lying on the bed with the microphone. Blimey, what a strange guy!" More rock news.
