Movember 2013: Bath Guitar School’s Richard Perkins Dons A Tony Iommi Style Mo For Cancer Charity

tony-iommi-mo-movember-2013This November I took part in my second Movember moustache growing campaign – in 2011 I grew a Frank Zappa style Mo!

This year I grew a Tony Iommi style Mo and chose to grow an Iommi Mo because Tony himself had been treated for cancer after he found a lump in is groin in 2011.

tony-iommo-mo-gopro-2013I recorded a dozen video shorts during the final week of November and published a new Black Sabbath riff in the guise of Tony Iommi for the final 7-days of Movember.

I had great fun donning a black wig, silver crucifix and purple tinted shades as I dressed up in the style on the guitar legend.
