Diagnosed With Lymphoma, Tony Iommi Remains Committed To Black Sabbath Reunion

Diagnosed with lymphoma, Black Sabbath‘s Tony Iommi is refusing to let his illness put a dampener on the band’s much anticipated reunion. At 63 years old, Iommi announced that the lymphoma is still in early stages and that he’s “upbeat and determined to make a full and successful recovery.” Last year Black Sabbath announced that they would reunite for a tour and new album, and it seems that despite Iommi’s health problems they plan to soldier ahead. The album will be the first album in 30 years featuring the band’s original lineup, and while we’re looking forward to the release, we’re now preoccupied with sending Iommi well wishes.
