Black Sabbath guitarist writing music for CSI TV series

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi confirms he is writing music for the CBS Television series CSI (Crime Scene Investigation).

“People have been asking what exactly I’m doing at the moment, we’ll I’m getting back in the studio having tried to make myself rest after the tours,” Iommi explains. “I’m writing, mostly just putting ideas down rather than complete songs. I like to create all sorts of moods with my music and then decide later how they might be used.”

“One specific piece though is for the CSI TV series that will be aired in the US on November 9th,” he continued. “I was asked if I’d be interested, so I had a look at the footage and came up with an idea they seemed to like. It’s not very long but it was different working with images rather than just music, I’d certainly be up for doing more.”

Iommi and Black Sabbath wrapped up their “13” reunion album and world tour in London in July.

Ozzy Osbourne recently revealed that the group plan to record a new album next year and perform a final world tour.
