    Recordings exist of Tony Iommi and Eddie Van Halen jamming at a Black Sabbath rehearsal!

    By Richard Bienstock
    First Published 2 hours ago

    Iommi even wandered into a store to procure an EVH guitar for the collaboration.

    In a new interview with Spin, Iommi was asked about his friendship with another electric guitar icon, Eddie Van Halen, and brought up the fact that the two actually jammed together during a Black Sabbath rehearsal – and Iommi even made sure to have an EVH guitar on hand for the event.

    The tidbit came to light after interviewer Katherine Turman mentioned the impending release of Eddie's son Wolfgang's forthcoming debut album with his band, Mammoth WVH.

    "Eddie idolized him," Iommi responded of Wolfgang. "You know, he really did. We used to talk about Wolfie quite a lot.

    And when we played in L.A. last time, they all came. Wolfie and Alex and Eddie and the wives. I got some great photos with us all. it was brilliant."

    He continued, "I got Eddie down to rehearsal when we played in England one time.

    He said, ‘What are you going to do tomorrow?’ I said, ‘Rehearsal.’ He went, ‘Ah, great. I’d love to come to that or come down.’ I went and picked him up at his hotel.

    On the way past the hotel, I popped into the music shop and asked, ‘Have you got an Eddie Van Halen guitar?’

    "They said, ‘Yeah, why?’ Of course. I brought Eddie in, and they were in shock. I asked if we could borrow it for a few hours.

    They said, ‘Yeah, yeah, sure!' I’ve got some tapes of that rehearsal."

    Iommi also revealed whether he had a chance to say goodbye to Eddie prior to his death in October 2020 after a battle with throat cancer.

    “I knew it was a matter of time,” Iommi said. “But he did contact me. And I could tell.

    The last email was just before he went into hospital the last time and it was really…

    You know, some of the words were mixed up, he was obviously sedated or something.

    But that was the last one I had from him. I really miss him.”

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    It’s in Iommi’s book, which came about ten years ago.

    And I’m almost certain he says he recorded the session but the tape got corrupted.

    The riff later came out as Evil Eye from Cross Purposes. Without Eddie being on it.

    If only there was a recording of Edward & Alex from the Mammoth days when they were a 3- piece with Mark Stone back in the early 70's when Edward did the vocals before they hooked up with David.

    It would be awesome to hear them doing a Black Sabbath tune.

    Oh well. Probably no recordings excist or if they did we'll never get to hear it.

    I thought that was Dave with Apollonia for a second in that black-and-white middle-row pic, but I don't think it's her. Always wanted to see a picture of them together. My hero and my dream girl!

    Her nose is thinner is why I say that, but hard to tell in that photo.
