Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi To Mentor On TV Talent Show
(hennemusic) Legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has revealed that he will be a mentor on Guitar Star, a new UK reality competition series that focuses on guitarists.

Iommi will be joined by fellow mentors Lee Ritenour, Rodrigo y Gabriela and Milos Karadaglic for the program, which will debut on the Sky Arts channel on June 9 with host, DJ Edith Bowman.

The winner of the nine-week competition will perform on the main stage at the Latitude festival. “I’d like somebody who plays from the soul,” says Iommi, “so I look for that really, as opposed to somebody learning every single note and getting everything perfect. I prefer it coming from the blues side and something coming from inside.”
