Tony Iommi has taken the time out of working on new Black Sabbath material to update fans on his continuing battle with cancer, as well as thanking Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler for keeping him on the right track. A new album is said to be in the pipeline, despite the fact that Iommi has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

A little update on how it’s all going:

Well, I’ve had the last dose of chemotherapy so hopefully my body will start to get back to normal soon, the steroids were the worse. I’ve now got three weeks of radiotherapy coming up which I’m told can be very tiring so we’ll see.

A big thanks to Ozzy and Geezer for coming over to England, it was a big incentive for me, we managed to work most days and have some great new tracks.

And, importantly thanks again for your kind messages, hope to be seeing you soon.
