Black Sabbath Star Made Album During Chemotherapy
Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi has revealed that he was enduring chemotherapy during the recording of the band's new album. The guitarist has announced that he received chemotherapy sessions for the treatment of lymphoma, after being diagnosed with cancer at the beginning of the year. The illness returned after plans for a reunion tour were already announced, however Iommi insisted on continuing on the project. Speaking to Kerrang! Iommi mentioned his struggle, "It was good for me to do that. I did feel tired and sick - and it does make you sick, you start throwing up. But on the days when I felt I could do it, we were all there working." Band mate Geezer Butler continued, "He was going to the hospital one day, and we'd go into the studio the next depending on how the chemo was affecting him." The band have also announced that they have recorded 15 new tracks in all and expect to write a further two more for the new album, which has been described by Ozzy Osbourne as "f--king killer, man". Black Sabbath are to headline this weekend's Download Festival at Donington Park. Thanks for the report to
