Black Sabbath’s Facebook page rocked everyone’s world with the horrible news that Tony Iommi has the early stages of lymphoma, blood cancer if you will. Coming on the heels of original lineup Sabbath reunion this is terrible news. Hopefully with an early diagnosis this is treatable. I don’t know if we could handle another hugely respected and beloved metal icon leaving us to this shitty disease. So pray or send your best wishes like you’ve never sent them before Tony’s way. We need to see him healthy and strong for the reunion tour this year and for many years to come. Here is the official quote from the Black Sabbath camp.
With the news that Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with the early stages of lymphona, 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.
