Rock News for Friday 13th August, 2010

Tony Iommi Gibson SG guitar stolen

It seems some seriously heartless ..., well you all know where that was going, but anyway ...
While Tony Iommi and Heaven and Hell were at the High Voltage festival in London, playing their tribute show to Ronnie James Dio, someone took it upon themselves to steal Tony Iommi's cherry red custom Gibson SG.
Tony's management asked the Black Sabbath website to post this message through their site, so I thought the least I can do is offer my support to try and help by doing the same here:

"Sadly, my RED CUSTOM SHOP IOMMI SG was stolen at the tribute show Heaven and Hell performed at High Voltage on July 24th. If you have any information or leads please let us know, we are offering a reward" - Tony

As Carl Palmer wraps up a bunch of Asia tour dates and his recent show with Emerson Lake and Palmer at London's High Voltage festival, he's about to go it alone for a while, before then hooking up with Asia again in December, for some more dates.
I also have it on reasonably good authority that next year, E.L.P. will be back in North America for some select tour dates. Watch this space!
