Brian May and Tony Iommi Planning to Offer Unused Riffs To Fans
In a recent issue of Kerrang!, Queen guitarist Brian May fielded interview questions from various fellow musicians. Black Sabbath shredder Tony Iommi was among the participants, and he took the opportunity to shed light on a secret project that sounds incredibly promising.
“When are we going to work on that album of riffs together?” Iommi asked May. “You know what I’m talking about...”
May responded: “Yes, I do know what he’s talking about and I’m very, very keen. The record he’s talking about was supposed to be a secret but I guess he’s blown it now!”
And what might that secret be?
Well, it would seem that May recently visited Iommi’s studio and found Sabbath’s guitarist sitting on a bunch of unused material, and May wants to put Iommi’s trove of riffs in the hands of fans.
"I thought it would be great to make a compilation out of them," May said. "The idea was to put all these riffs out in some form so that people could build their own songs from them. You could make your own music with Tony Iommi on guitar!"
That’s about all May and Iommi are revealing at this point, but here’s hoping the guitar greats follow through on their big talk and put their bright idea into action. We’re already working on lyrics for our Iommi collaboration.
