Black Sabbath star Tony Iommi is to pass on his rock ‘n’ roll knowledge to students in his native U.K. as a university music professor.

The rocker has been made a professor of music at Coventry University in England and plans to start teaching songwriting workshops in the autumn.

Iommi, who received an honorary doctorate from the university last year, says, “I’m looking forward to working with the students.”

Dr Sara Reed, head of the university’s performing arts department, adds, “His huge wealth of experience and musical knowledge is beyond value to our students. It’s a fantastic opportunity for them to learn from such an immensely talented individual.”
