In this brand new GibsonTV Original Series, “The Conversation” gives two artists from similar genres and different generations the chance to sit down and discuss each others journey in the music business.
In this latest episode, JUDAS PRIEST guitarist Richie Faulkner sits down with iconic BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi for a one on one about early influences, finding your sound as a guitar player and a number of tails from the road.
Watch the video below.
During a Q&A session at the Kipinä Kokkola business conference in Kokkola, Finland on September 5, Iommi said that he isn’t ruling out a SABBATH reunion.
“We may — I don’t know — do a one-off or something, but [we’re] never touring again,” he said. “‘Cause we’re at the age now — we retired, but I’m still gonna play. But to tour the world like we were — we did an 18-month tour, the last one was. It’s a long time to be out and away from home and your friends and family. So if we do do anything, it would be very short.”
One of heavy metal’s all-time greats, JUDAS PRIEST will be celebrating their 50th anniversary this year with a world tour coming to the U.S. in the fall. The 50 Heavy Metal Years Tour will also feature SABATON as openers and is being fueled by the highest charting album of PRIEST’s career Firepower which peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200.
Tickets for the tour are available here.
