Tony Iommi was born on February 19, 1948 in Birmingham, England where he attended Birchfield Road School. It was at school that Iommi first met his future bandmate Ozzy Osbourne, who was also a student at Birchfield Road, but one grade below him. Iommi is best known as one of the founding member of the legendary rock band Black Sabbath. He began to learn to play the guitar as a teenager and in 1968 former the band that would be come to be known as Black Sabbath. Due to an industrial accident before he joined the band, Iommi was missing the tips of the middle and ring finger of his right hand. Over time, this interfered with his guitar playing, and by 1970 affected the Black Sabbath sound, as he had to detune his guitar from E to E♭and by 1971 had detuned it further to D♭ in order to ease the tension on his injured fingers. Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler did the same to match Iommi. The band was among the first bands to detune, and the technique became a practice of heavy metal music.
