Back in January it was reported that Tony Iommi had lymphoma which is a treatable form of cancer.In the midst of this terrible news swirled the drama around Bill Ward participating in a Black Sabbath reunion and tour. So in case you had forgotten about Tony’s condition he was kind enough to send a message via his Facebook page.
A little update on how it’s all going:
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 worse. 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.
So it sounds like hopeful news though I’m sure this is more of an ass kicking then he’s letting on. More importantly then satisfying our selfish wants and needs in regards to Black Sabbath we need to wish Tony a speedy and full recovery.
