Tony Iommi will get his next Golden Gods from Metal Hammer


Exciting news arrived today from Metal Hammer - on Monday 12 June Black Sabbath will be crowned 2017 Golden Gods! Tony Iommi will collect Metal Hammer’s most prestigious award on behalf of the band at next week’s Golden Gods event.

The 15th annual event will be held at London’s IndigO2 at The O2 on Monday, June 12, which will be hosted by Fozzy frontman and WWE megastar Chris Jericho.

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi will be on hand to receive the night’s most prestigious award on behalf of the band, who brought the curtain down on their 49-year career with a pair of sold-out shows in their home town of Birmingham in February.

Bassist Geezer Butler says: “Thank you for this award. It's good to know that after almost 50 years Sabbath is still relevant, and has its importance in the history of music. I want to thank our fans who have been with us along the way, without them there would be no Sabbath.”

Metal Hammer editor Merlin Alderslade adds: “Black Sabbath are, quite simply, the Ground Zero for metal. Without them, heavy music wouldn’t exist as we know and love it today, and it only seems right that in a year where we’re celebrating the power of our scene, we acknowledge the influence of the Mac Daddies themselves."

We can't wait for Monday to come, to see more detailed news about Tony's and the band's new award, it's gonna be a great evening.

Congratulations, Tony, well deserved, and many more to come!, 6 June 2017
