Tony Blair has admitted he could never master BLACK SABBATH on guitar. The former British Prime Minister, who was in a band at university called UGLY RUMOURS, confessed to frontman OZZY OSBOURNE that he could never get the band's track 'Iron Man' right.

"I met Tony Blair a couple of years ago, and he said to me, 'I was in a band once, and I could never get the riff to 'Iron Man' right,'" recalled Osbourne. "I thought, 'Why are you telling me about 'Iron Man' when there's a war going on?'"

Osbourne made the comments while DJing for Radio 1 as part of the station's 40th birthday celebrations. His show airs tonight (September 27) at 9pm.
