If you missed the news earlier today, Black Sabbath's guitarist, Tony Iommi, has been diagnosed with the first stages of lymphoma. Currently, he is working with doctors on how to best approach treatment of the disease.
As reported late last year, Black Sabbath is slated to go into the studio and record a new record after their last release 33 years ago. They are also slated to embark on a reunion tour starting in May, but the band is not sure they will be able to follow through at this moment. The band will continue to record a new album in England to accomodate Iommi's treatments.
