Tony Iommi & The Best Metal Guitarists Of All Time [VIDEO]

Tony Iommi – Facebook

Gibson have posted a list of the greatest heavy metal guitarists of all time, and Tony Iommi owns the top spot.

The guitar manufacturer, which was founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan back in 1902 by Orville Gibson, posted the following…

“Of all rock’n’roll’s many styles metal is the most brutal. No matter the sub-genre, metal is held together by a reliance on loud riffing guitars and, of course, an inspiring lead guitarist.

“Tony’s dark, distinct guitar textures in Black Sabbath helped spearhead the heavy metal movement. Iron Man and Paranoid boast some of the most memorable riffs of all time, with crushingly heavy choruses. His playing is immortalised through the generations of bands that have followed.”
