Tony's student Alfie Glass wins Sky Arts Guitar Star's Rock Heat final

One of Tony Iommi's students at Guitar Star competition, Alfie Glass, has been named the winner of the Rock Heat on Sky Arts series.

The 13-year-old son of Solstice guitarist Andy Glass impressed the judges at his first audition on the television show and made it through to the Rock Heat final. And the youngster pulled out all the stops once again to win the final, broadcast earlier this week.

Ahead of the final at London's 100 Club, Alfie was mentored by his hero – Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi, who presented Alfie with one of his own signature amps.

Alfie now goes through to the show's final stages, where he will compete against the winners of the Classical, Jazz and Acoustic categories for the right to perform on the main stage at the upcoming Latitude festival. Andy says: "When Alfie got on stage, he just ripped it up. I'm biased of course, but I'm not sure I've seen a youngster that composed and with that much stage presence before." 
Tony Iommi was very impressed and said: "That guy's a winner".
