Tony Iommi Issues Update On His Treatment

Tony Iommi has issued an update on his current condition.

The Black Sabbath guitarist is battling against lymphoma, and says:

“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 and Geezer 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.”

The band are working on a new album in London right now, with producer Rick Rubin. They are due to headline the Download Festival on Sunday, June 10.
