I was just sent this email from Andy Rance at the Livewire, who had contacted Tony Iommi’s manager regarding Cozy…

Livewire, our music charity, has just received a donation of Cozy Powell’s custom Gold and Black drum kit, this kit was used amongst other things with Black Sabbath (headless Cross) and Cozy’s work with Brian May, it was donated at Livewire to help inspire young musicians, I’m currently trying to collate a few memories of people who played with Cozy which we can put up on a display behind his kit.  The drum kit will be available to the public to look at during various open days etc and we wondered if Tony might be willing to share a memory of Cozy.

If you want to read more about Livewire, you can check out their site here, or their Twitter page here.

    Just listening to “Facing The Animal” by Yngwie Malmsteen, Cozy’s Playing is just Fantastic what a Great legend!! his style is so evident just like all the great guitarists over the last 50 odd years such a shame he had to go so young!
