The Burk(e) Supremacy

You all should be catching VH1's "Heavy: The Story of Heavy Metal" because it features genius jazz/metal/noise scribe Greg Burk as one of its talking heads. Here's his latest on the festival of Ozzmociousness, and metal shows in general. Episode one has him detailing the elaborate home-brewed prosthetic that allowed Black Sabbath's Tommy Iommi to play guitar after a terrible industrial accident and change all of our lives. Don't know about the weird, possibly wrong, spelling of his name, tho.
I just hope they put on Lonn Friend, and maybe even do their homework and get the tireless Martin Popoff as well.

But I love that Greg Burk the best. There. I said it.
