Tony Iommi: Michael Bolton auditioned for Black Sabbath

Tony Iommi: Michael Bolton auditioned for Black Sabbath
You know that rumour about a young Michael Bolton auditioning to be singer for Black Sabbath? The urban legend that Bolton himself has said isn’t true? Well it’s popped up again and saying it is, err, oh wait, it’s Tony fucking Iommi.
Yes, Sabbath guitar legend Tony Iommi has confirmed things. He was speaking to GibsonTV about replacing Ronnie James Dio in the early 80s, and how they asked David Coverdale but he’d just formed Whitesnake. Then he says:
“So, there was a lot of looking for another singer, and we auditioned various singers — including Michael Bolton, believe it or not. He was one of them, which was an odd one.
Which is great.
