Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has a new gig -- professor!
Iommi is the newest professor at England's Coventry University. As Visiting Professor of Music, Iommi will discuss songwriting with students. Now that's a class that any aspiring rocker would give their eyeteeth to take. Duh.
Iommi was awarded an honorary Doctorate of the Arts from the school last November. He received the honor for his contributions to global music.
The guitar god will appear in the fall to work directly with students on their songwriting and composition skills.
As we mentioned and as you may well know, Iommi recently endured a battle with cancer.
Who is your favorite guitarist of all time?
