Asked about whether the band had performed in a way that played up to their Satanic image,Tony Iommi told HARDtalk's Shaun Ley they had "dabbled" in the occult in the early days, but said they had never been Satanists. 

"It was creating music, and that's all I do. I don't try to create anything to destroy people or to upset anybody," he added.

Iommi also discussed the band's past drug use: "If I'd have known, what I know now, I certainly would not have dabbled to that extent. I don't think any of us would."
