Faulkner has spent the nine years proving what a valuable addition he's been to the Birmingham metal gods after KK Downing's departure in 2011. Unsurprisingly, he's a huge fan of Iommi and proves a great interviewer here at Gibson's Nashville factory. Iommi agrees…

"I thought that he did such a brilliant job and he was such a natural at interviewing," the Iron Man said on his Facebook page. "We had a really great day and later topped it off with Gibson inviting us out for dinner and drinks of course. Fantastic!"
