8-Track Tape – Intro and Inspiration to Tony Iommi and Black Sabbath

8-Track Tape – Intro and Inspiration to Tony Iommi and Black Sabbath

While the 8-Track tape music format had many frustrating aspects and was somewhat limited for sound quality versus vinyl, it is still held in high esteem here at KnuckleBonz. 8-track tape is not only a 70s era tentpole, it’s the format that I was first introduced to Black Sabbath and Tony Iommi. Can still see the blistered covers of the first Sabbath recordings, Black Sabbath, Paranoid and Masters of Reality strewn throughout the car floorboard. We called on these memories when designing our Tony Iommi Rock Iconz Ltd. Edition Statue. The design captures Tony Iommi circa 1973 when he was wearing the long white sleeved shirts and white platform shoes. His red guitar was equipped with the classic monkey decal.

The Tony Iommi Rock Iconz statue is entering the later stages pf production and is scheduled to ship before the end of the year. Stay tuned to KnuckleBonz here and on social media for updates on the Tony Iommi Rock Iconz Limited Edition and all the KnuckleBonz products.
