Legendary Guitarist Tommy Iommi shares his love for the brand.
If you happen to find yourself on stage shredding with Ozzy, you’ve made it in life. Being a founding member of Black Sabbath, Tommy has been touring since 1968. When he isn’t on the road, he spends time with his Lamborghini collection. In the latest press release from Sant’ Agata we learned it all started with a pair of Espadas.
From there he bought a pristine Miura SV, the world’s first supercar that also happens to be 50 years old this month. Even though Ozzy left and came back a few times, the music is just as powerful as his cars.
“For us it was all about sticking to what we do, what we believe in and what we like, from day one and all the way through. I’ve never changed my style because it’s the fashion. We’ve been in and out of fashion ourselves as things around us were constantly changing. But we never compromised and came back as big as ever, until we filled stadiums again. It was brilliant!”
“We started the heavy metal genre, which inspired bands like Metallica and Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters to find their own styles. Music changes as it goes on, but ours has pretty much stayed the same, because that’s what we do: when you’re involved in something and it’s in you, that’s what you play. We have improved it over the years, but we retained the original thing. Equally, Lamborghini has always looked for innovation while always retaining that unmatched power and unmistakable sound.”
