Anthony Frank Iommi, better known as Tony Iommi, is an English guitarist, composer, and producer. His early years were marked by a deep interest in martial arts and various sports.
His family heritage also instilled a genuine love for music, with the accordion being among his first musical instruments. While experimenting with music, he discovered a passion for drums, but the noise they generated led him to explore the guitar instead.
Despite having various jobs, including one in a metallurgical company, his true aspiration was always to become a musician. When he saw an ad for a guitarist needed in a band, he wasted no time in applying and landing the gig. However, his job commitments clashed with his musical ambitions, a situation his mother advised him to resolve.
Little did Tony know that a fateful twist of fate and a tragic event would soon test his determination, eventually leading him to hold his mother accountable for the events that unfolded that day.
