Tony Iommi and Brian May to participate on a Cozy Powell memorial plaque unveiling

 

Rock legends are being brought together for the unveiling of a plaque in Cirencester (UK) that honours the town’s most famous musician, reports Wilts And Gloucestershire Standard.

Talented drummer Cozy Powell played in host of huge rock bands in the 80s including, The Jeff Beck Group, Rainbow, Whitesnake and Black Sabbath and was regarded as one of the best drummers of his generation.

In 1998 the rock world was in mourning when Cozy who loved fast cars was killed in a car accident on the M4. But Cozy's memory lives on and Cirencester Town Council decided to create the plaque to remember him, which will be unveiled at the Corn Hall in the town on January 7th, by Queen guitarist Brian May who was good friends with Cozy.

And a  number of Cozy’s rock star friends will also be attending the event including Black Sabbath lead guitarist and founder Tony Iommi and American musician Suzy Quatro.

Tony posted the following message on his Facebook page on Christmas Day:

"I was going to make a video clip for Christmas but I’ve had the flu and couldn’t speak! Have a Happy Christmas and hopefully a re-charge wherever you are in the world. My daughter sent me a video, check it out here. 

Very best wishes, Tony"

Get well soon, dear Master! No flu can stop you! Merry Christmas from all Iommifans around the world! We love you, Tony!
