Tony Iommi Writes Armenian Eurovision Song
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has written the Armenian entry to this year's Eurovision song content, it has been revealed. The song "Lonely Planet" performed by Dorians, which you can hear in the player below, was selected in a national Armenian vote, and will appear in the live Eurovision semifinals on May 14 and 16, with the final to follow on May 18. Iommi's role as a songwriter alongside lyricist Vardan Zadoyan has been kept secret until now. Iommi has apparently spent a lot of time in Armenia after falling in love with the country, according to Blabbermouth who report that Iommi has dedicated a lot of work alongside friend and Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan in the country, which is still recovering from a devastating earthquake in 1988. Meanwhile, Iommi and the rest of Black Sabbath are putting the final touches to their long-awaited new album "13", due in June. You can hear the song "Lonely Planet" being performed by Dorians here:
