Black Sabbath. Quit faking that you know something about them and read this book. It’s not Ozzy’s incomprehensible babbling, Iron Man is the legend and lore of the greatest heavy metal band of all time told from Tony Iommi’s perspective. The fact that you draw a blank on Iommi’s name is reason enough to read it.
