The charity project Who Cares including Tony Iommi, Ian Gillan and friends, released a charity single Out Of My Mind / Holy Water in 2011, and last year also a full length album Who Cares – Tony Iommi & Ian Gillan, and set out to build a musical school for children – victims of the 1988 earthquake in Armenia gives excellent results. The construction is proceeding well and the new school is expected to open this summer. New musical instruments were donated by Millbank Music.
Tony Iommi himself informs on his official website:
"A big thank you to Tim and the team at Millbank Music in Canada for the huge pile of instruments now on their way to Armenia. With support like this the project was always going to be successful, when the school opens this summer they'll be off to a great start!"
Tony and Ian Gillan are helping Armenia from 1989, they had visited the country together on various occasions in past years, and were awarded by the local government for the long term charity work.
We hope that the worldwide tour with Black Sabbath will not prevent Tony be present at the school’s opening ceremony!
