John provided drums for the track Meat on Iommi’s star-studded solo long-play. The pastoral setting of Long View Farm, Massachusetts, seems an unlikely spot for the recording of this track, which is driven by Iommi’s unmistakeable guitar, and fulfilled a lifelong dream for John.
John Tempesta says:
“That was special. We wrote Meat together in the studio. He had a couple of other songs beforehand that he wanted me to record but we had a day off and Chino from the Deftones was there, and he came up with a guitar riff and it just happened.”
“The magic was in the room with Iommi. It just felt so good because, growing up with Sabbath, I was playing this stuff after listening to it for so many years. The vibe was great.”
“I would love to play that song live. I really like the drum sound on that track.”
