The official launch was attended yesterday by Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi, who has overseen a recreation of his home studio for the exhibition.


“It’s one of the proudest moments you could have,” Iommi told Uncut. “I recall about 30 years ago a local newsreader saying, 
‘A monument for Black Sabbath, can you imagine?’ It was a bit of a joke. And of course, now, here it is – we’ve got the bridge, the bench and now the museum.”
