Slash: 'Tony Iommi Deserves a Medal'
As Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi got nominated for a prestigious Pride of Birmingham Award, fellow axe legend Slash sang massive praises of father of metal, calling him the ultimate inspiration.

Praising 66-year-old Iommi's musical impact and determination to beat cancer, Slash noted, "Tony is one of those guys who inspires everyone. I was brought up on Black Sabbath and he is one of the best rock and roll guitarists out there. As a fellow player I can really appreciate all the nuances of his technique - he is one hell of a guitar player."

The axeman continued (via Birmingham Mail), "This is the man who invented heavy metal in Birmingham and created Sabbath, a brand nobody can touch. Everyone you meet in rock circles will tell you that they were inspired by Black Sabbath and the band's influence is immeasurable.

"Besides which, Tony is a great guy and we've met on a number of occasions. There's just no stopping him. He comes down with lymphoma and what does he do? Reform Sabbath and do a world tour.

"He really is the Pride of Birmingham and he deserves a f--king medal," Slash concluded.
