TONY IOMMI è UN CIOCIARO ! NONNI GELATAI DEI BLACK SABBATH

GLI IOMMI EMIGRARONO DALLA PROVINCIA DI FROSINONE VERSO LA GRAN BRETAGNA, I NONNI ITALIANI DEL NONNO DELL'HARD ROCK !

Gli Iommi, i nonni paterni del chitarrista, emigrarono dalla provincia di Frosinone verso Birmingham intorno al 1913. Riguardo l'occupazione dei nonni, e dei genitori italiani (sua madre era nata a Palermo), del chitarrista dei Black Sabbath, Francis Anthony "Tony" Iommi (nato il 19 Febbraio 1948 a ASTON, BIRMINGHAM, Inghilterra:
"Nearby in Banbury Street, Frank Iommi made ice-cream and sold it from his house in Buck Street; while Clement Albericci had a small factory, where he “made barrel organs for the Italians and also retuned them and remarked them”. By 1919, Birmingham’s Italian community was concentrated in two streets: Duddeston Row and Bartholomew Street, close to the modern Millennium Point."
"Nelle vicinanze, in Banbury Street, Frank Iommi faceva gelati e li vendeva nella sua casa in Buck Street; mentre Clement Albericci aveva una piccola fabbrica, dove egli "produceva organetti per italiani e anche li restaurava": Dal 1919, la comunità degli italiani di Birmingham era concentrata in 2 strade: Duddeston Row e Bartholomew Street, vicine all'odieno moderno Millennium Point."
The son of Italian immigrants,Tony Iommi picked up the guitar as a teenager, after being inspired by the likes of Hank Marvin and The Shadows. He plays guitar left-handed. In an industrial accident at the age of 17 on his last day of work in a sheet metal factory, he lost the tips of the middle and ring finger of his right hand. Iommi considered abandoning music, but his boss (who knew of Iommi's "night job" as a pub band guitar player) encouraged him to reconsider by playing a record by jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, who earned wide acclaim despite limited use of his fretting hand following an injury.
il cognome Iommi, dovrebbe avere origini dal nome greco Diomede o Iomene.

"Ho iniziato a suonare la fisarmonica... perchè mio padre, tutta la mia famiglia - parenti - tutti suonavano la fisarmonica"
Andrew Lock asks: Having just started playing guitar at a fairly late age (33) could you tell me at what age you started playing?
Tony: It's been that long now I can't remember! I started playing an accordion... because me father, all my family - relations - all played accordions; `course I was palmed off with an accordion. I wanted to play drums originally... I was about 12,13 or 14... about ten years ago now!

Quasi tutti i famigliari di Anthony suonavano la fisarmonica.
