Tony Iommi has cancer

This just posted from the Official Black Sabbath Facebook page.

With the news that Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with the early stages of lymphoma, 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.

This comes as Black Sabbath--Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass) and Bill Ward (drums)--are writing and recording their first album in 33 years in Los Angeles (still set for release this fall) with producer Rick Rubin. They will now go to the UK to continue to work with Tony. Further information will be released as it becomes available.

UPDATE: If you'd like to send a get well email to Tony, you can do so by emailing getwelltony@black-sabbath.com - Please don't send other stuff than get well wishes. They'll get deleted. It's just for this subject. Thanks.

"I absolutely insist ..., religious or not, send a prayer up for Tony Iommi. Iommi is the reason heavy metal exists. You pray to Crom, Odin, yourself – don't care who. Just send up some positive vibes for Tony Iommi." - Randy Blythe

Message From Tony

13th January 2012

My fans, friends & colleagues -


I just want to say how overwhelmed I am with all your messages of support, thank you so much.

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 so that we can continue working on the album as things are going great in the studio.

Well, not much else to say at this time, so thanks again.

Bless you all,

Tony

Sending happy thoughts! They said "early stages" so hopefully the treatment won't be too rough and it hasn't spread anywhere.

Yeah, I second that.

My mom kicked Lymphoma in the nuts over the last two years, but she still hasn't fully recovered yet. So this might take some time. Then again he's filthy rich, so maybe it will go quicker. :P
