In honor of MGK's Black Sabbath Free Ticket Weekend, here's the story behind Black Sabbath's 'Iron Man' from the band members themselves, find out what inspired it (hint, not a super hero), problems recording the drum tracks & why the band feels the song is the essence of Sabbath's sound. Plus find out how to score free Sabbath tickets all weekend.
MGK welcomes Black Sabbath to BB&T Pavilion on August 19 for their farewell tour. Call in to win free tickets all weekend long when you hear ‘Sage Advice’, from The Prince of Darkness. @Work Network Members get an extra chance to win and the best times to listen.
With its complex, sci-fi storyline and equally weighty sonics, Iron Man went on to become so much more than just another Sabbath track - but don't go thinking it's about the superhero... There's a well-thumbed story that the Black Sabbath song Iron Man was inspired by the Marvel Comics character of the same name.
