Tony Iommi, the legendary guitar player of Black Sabbath, spoke to Planet Rock on the red carpet of the Kerrang! Awards in London on Thursday, June 21, that he will "eventually" start writing and putting some new music together! Asked about his future plans, Immi said: "I'm going to carry on playing, but I've been taking it easy, you know, just to figure out what and pick things that I want to do as opposed to… You know, when you do a tour you have to go out there for a year, 18 months, so that time's gotta be taken. But now I don't have to do that, and I can pick and choose what I want to do. So, I've been doing a lot of charity stuff, and eventually, I will start writing and putting some stuff together."

He also said about the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England: "I haven't spoken to Geezer Butler about it, but I know Ozzy wants to do it and I'm up for that. I think it's great. We're from Birmingham and if we can represent Birmingham and they ask us, that's great. If we can still play by that time. And if we're still here."
