Black Sabbath Guitarist Diagnosed with Cancer

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (01/09/12)
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with lymphoma. We wish him the best of luck in his recovery.
StatementWith the news that Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with the early stages of lymphoma, his bandmates would like everyone to send positive vibes to the guitarist at this time. Iommi is currently working with his doctors to establish the best treatment plan--the “IRON MAN” of Rock & Roll remains upbeat and determined to make a full and successful recovery.

This comes as Black Sabbath--Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass) and Bill Ward (drums)--are writing and recording their first album in 33 years in Los Angeles (still set for release this fall) with producer Rick Rubin. They will now go to the UK to continue to work with Tony. Further information will be released as it becomes available.

Terrible news. Hopefully they caught it early enough to improve his chances at beating it.

Not a Sabbath fan, but as a lymphoma survivor my thoughts and prayers go out to him.

Oh no! I hope he gets better. It would be absolutely dreadful to lose him to this.
