Black Sabbath icon Tony Iommi was recently interviewed by Dave Everley of Metal Hammer and revealed his thoughts on the modern metal.

Iommi admitted that he doesn’t listen too much modern metal and that’s not his kind of music.

Here is his statement:

“I tend to listen to the more older stuff really. More the classic stuff than the newer stuff because I relate to that more.

We were put down by the press for so long, we didn’t really care about that because we always sold out at gigs and stuff in America”

Last week, Tony Iommi has shared a touching message to Dave Mustaine after his tragic cancer diagnosis.

As you know, Dave Mustaine has revealed an official announcement on Megadeth’s website, and confirmed that he has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

Today, Tony Iommi posted a rare photo of himself with Dave Mustaine, and wrote:

“So sorry to hear about @DaveMustaine’s diagnosis. Get well soon buddy, we’re thinking of you and the many good times we’ve had on tour together. Working is the best recovery.”
