Tony Iommi was born 65 years ago Tuesday, on February 19, 1948. A guitarist who needs no introduction, we’re very happy at The National GUITAR Museum to have him on our board of advisors. To celebrate Tony’ birthday, we’ll simply put up this video of one of his early solos. You’ll see how Iommi – as the guiding light of Black Sabbath – shaped the sound of modern hard rock and metal nearly 40 years ago. Enjoy, and happy birthday, Tony. Here’s to many more.http://youtu.be/lKzgOHK3y-0
Here’s one of three galleries at the Springfield Museums where our exhibit “GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World” is being hosted for the next three months. This was taken just as doors opened for our first day opening this morning. Thanks to everyone who made it a huge success.
