Should Be "Tony Iommi: Never Say Die", May 15 2004
This book shows in great detail what Tony Iommi had to go through to keep Black Sabbath alive all these years.
Some may think periods such as the Fenholt chapter are overdone but I'd disagree. The facts here leave no doubt, at least by my interpretation, that he was never in Black Sabbath.
There are stories of Tony Martin either turning up or almost turning up when you least expect him...
The "Born Again" chapter is just a ride!
"Never Say Die" manages to organize rather well a very chaotic period of Black Sabbath's history while maintaining a detailed fascinating read. Some stuff we knew but most we didn't. You will be suprised and, honestly, maybe shocked by some of the details in this book for sure.
A must read for anybody that doesn't think Black Sabbath died with Ozzy's departure. The only complaint is an appalling lack of an editor but that's nitpicking compared to the high quality of detail both large and small.
A well-earned 5 stars.
