Tony Iommi Responds To Cancer Diagnosis
Tony Iommi has posted a personal thank you to fans for their support after news that he has developed lymphomatic cancer. The Black Sabbath guitarist said he was overwhelmed by the support from his fan base, and added: "Well it's not what I wanted for Christmas, that's for sure, but now I can't wait for the test results to come in and get going with the treatment. "It's really good that the guys are coming over [to the UK] so that we can continue working on the album as things are going great in the studio." As Tony mentions, the band will move their recording operations from the US to their home country to continue with their first recording together in 33 years. It's good to know the band will continue with plans to release a new album, but since Tony's diagnosis we haven't heard a whisper on their previously announced plans for a world tour. Yesterday, we reported that Black Sabbath were forced to cancel their scheduled headline slot at the Coachella Festival. Sadly, it might take more than a speedy recovery for Tony to manage a full-scale world tour. Here's hoping.
