Tony Iommi Upbeat About Black Sabbath And Lymphoma

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has posted a positive New Year's message on his website, which is encouraging for fans who are concerned about the 65-year-old's continued battle with lymphoma. While Iommi says that he is still undergoing treatment, he indicates that the worst of it may be behind him.

"We've some good things lined up for the coming year," Iommi begins, "firstly the Grammys, then some dates in the U.S. and Canada, and in the summer a quick trip round Europe."

Regarding his lymphoma, Iommi said "I should also be finishing my regular treatment and I'm hoping to not get so tired, all positive."

Iommi concluded the message with a simple thank you to fans: "Many thanks to you all for your continued support, we'd be nothing without you."

Black Sabbath reunited in 2013 to release 13, their first album in over a decade.
