Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and Deep Purple’s Ian Gillian recently visited Yerevan, Armenia to be honored for their humanitarian efforts in raising funds to help the country rebuild itself after an earthquake in 1988. While there, the Naregatsi Orchestra performed the Sabbath track “She’s Gone” for the rock icons.
“She’s Gone” appears on Sabbath’s 1976 album Technical Ecstasy, and Iommi has gone on to share the cover all over his social media pages, including his YouTube Channel with the video embedded below.
Iommi and Gillian were among a massive slate of musicians, including Ritchie Blackmore, David Gilmour and Brian May, who recorded under the name Rock Aid Armenia. The group recorded a cover of the Deep Purple classic “Smoke on the Water” and released it as a charity single.
