As we all know, Tony Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma in the beginning of this year. The legendary Black Sabbath guitarist issued the following statement regarding his illness :

“Well, I’ve had the last dose of chemotherapy, so hopefully my body will start to get back to normal soon. The steroids were the [worst]. I’ve now got three weeks of radiotherapy coming up which I’m told can be very tiring, so we’ll see.”

“A big thanks to Ozzy [Osbourne] and Geezer [Butler] for coming over to England; it was a big incentive for me. We managed to work most days and have some great new tracks.

“And, importantly, thanks again for your kind messages. Hope to be seeing you soon.”

Hopefully he will get better soon and we can see him rocking on stage again 🙂
