Wait – we’re on the last page already, and we haven’t even looked at doom metal and stoner rock? Well, that’s what happens when you’re writing about a guy who’s been playing the guitar for almost 50 years. In that case, let’s raise a glass to High On Fire, one of the more dynamic stoner-doom-rockers of the last decade or so. Their most recent album, ‘Snakes For The Divine’, produced this tasty single, based on a full-fat guitar riff that has ‘Borrowed From Tony’ stamped all over it.
It only remains to doff a hat to Iommi, who inspired all this lot and hundreds of others. Long may he reign.
Total Guitar issue 210 (originally on sale 24 December - 20 January) featured Tony Iommi on the cover and contained 11-pages of Iommi coverage, including an in-depth interview and a complete tab of 'Planet Caravan'.
