Black Sabbath’s guitarist Tony Iommi who wrote the Lonely Planet, the Armenian Eurovision entry for Dorians wished best of luck to the band at the song contest.
In an interview with Eurovision.tv, Iommi spoke about cooperation with Dorians and the story behind the song.
“I was really pleased to be asked to write the song and it didn’t take long to agree. I had a quick think and felt that one of my ideas would be suitable. I think the lyrics are really good – it’s something that should concern us all. The Dorians perform really well, they largely followed the demo that I had done at home so there wasn’t a surprise,” Iommi said. In conclusion, Iommi expressed hope for his song to attract more interest to the contest.
Tony Iommi will not attend the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 though.
