(Classic Rock) Tony Iommi has been given The National Guitar Museum's Lifetime Achievement Award. The Black Sabbath man becomes the sixth person to be honoured by the museum, following David 'Honeyboy' Edwards, Roger McGuinn of The Byrds, B.B. King, Vic Flick and Buddy Guy.

It recognizes recipients for "a lifetime of contributing to the legacy of the guitar and having a singular importance to the development and historical appreciation of the instrument."

Iommi says: "I'm very honoured by this award from the National Guitar Museum. The guitar has been an important part of my life for most of my life, and I'm happy to have contributed to its legacy. Not only that, but I have just the place for this award in my new studio." Read more here.
