Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi to Teach at Coventry University

Guitar legend Tony Iommi has been appointed the role of Visiting Professor of Music at Coventry University.

Last year the university awarded the founding member of Black Sabbath with an Honorary Doctorate Of Arts for his outstanding contribution to global music.

Dr. Geoff Willcocks, Coventry University's Director Of Arts And Culture, said, "To watch Tony interact with the students was an absolute privilege. He was incredibly generous and open with them about all aspects of his work. Tony is without doubt a rock icon and he's an inspiration to so many people around the world. It's wonderful to have such an important and respected international figure working with us."

Dr. Sara Reed, Head Of Department For Performing Arts at the University, said, "It is a tremendous honour to have Tony here with us as a Visiting Professor. His huge wealth of experience and musical knowledge is beyond value to our students. It's a fantastic opportunity for them to learn from such an immensely talented individual and all in the department sincerely look forward to working with Tony in the future."
