A joke about Sir Tom Jones joining Black Sabbath has turned into an unlikely collaboration plan for the Welsh singer and Tony Iommi.

The guitarist admits the April Fool’s joke perpetrated by British magazine Kerrang! over two decades ago became the kernel of an idea and now he and Jones are talking about working together.

Iommi tells Classic Rock magazine, “I’ve met Tom a few times. We were talking one day and he said, ‘Did you ever see that thing in the press about me joining you guys?’ I said, ‘Yes, I did,’ and he said, ‘It’s not a bad idea, is it?’

“I like Tom, he’s good. I’d actually like to do something with him. It could work.”
