Tommy Iommi is the living legend lead guitarist of Black Sabbath, but that's only part of what makes his autobiography so gripping. Iommi offers a unashamedly naked account of his life; from his youth in a rough Birmingham, England neighborhood; his workplace injury that deprived him of two fingertips and the extraordinary readjustments he made because of his handicap; and, far from least, his career and relations with Black Sabbath, including Ozzy Osbourne and their huge extended family. Every page of Iron Man has the ring of truth: "A couple nights afterward, we played the Fillmore East, which was absolutely fantastic. That, for us, was a great gig. We had never used a PA system, never used a monitor, never even knowing what a monitor was. You could actually hear each other onstage properly. It was incredible!" A front row seat to an extremely rowdy performance.
