Tony Iommi should no longer be “Paranoid.” As of yesterday, the Black Sabbath guitarist released a statement on his website stating he was done with this chemotherapy. Since December, the 64 year-old rocker has been battling lymphoma, a cancer that affects your immune system cells; now, according to his statement, he has started his road to recovery.
Tony wrote, “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.”
The Riff Master went on to thank his fans and also thanked his band mates, Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler, for coming to England where they were still able to crank out new tracks for their next album. Iommi added that their support “was a big incentive for me.”
We are looking forward to Black Sabbath touring later this year and hope he channels an “Iron Man” type mentality for a quick recovery! \m/
