Black Sabbath icon Tony Iommi has said he hopes to collaborate with Judas Priest’s Rob Halford when “the time’s right.” He added that the project could include writing songs together, but also suggested there could be more to it. The British icons have known each other from years and come from the same part of England, but have never managed to work in partnership to date.
“We’ve talked about it for ages,” Iommi told Metal Hammer. When the time’s right it would be nice to write a track or two, or whatever. I’d like to do that. It’s nice to work with people that you respect and like.” He reported that he hadn’t done much work since Black Sabbath retired last year, explaining: ”I’m not writing at the moment, but I will be. I moved house, and I’ve only just got set up again. It’s great to have a break – you come back fresh.”
