Black Sabbath guitarist reflects on Grammy win

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi is reflecting on the band’s experience at last month’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, where they picked up honors in the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" category for “God Is Dead?” from their latest album, “13.”

“Well the dust has settled on the Grammy’s now, great to win another one but what a palaver,” posted Iommi on Monday. “As the East Coast is three hours ahead the televised part begins at 5pm so you're leaving the hotel at lunchtime, all dolled up and ready for the red carpet! It was good though, plenty of interest in the album still and endless questions about what we’re doing next. Well it’s shows in the US, Canada, and Europe, so far too busy with that to be thinking about more recording.”

Black Sabbath return to live action with a series of North American shows starting March 31 in New York.

The trek includes a 3-week Canadian tour that begins April 3 in Halifax, Nova Scotia and wraps April 22 in Edmonton, Alberta; it is followed by a Los Angeles stop at the Hollywood Bowl on April 26.
