Black Sabbath guitarist, Tony Iommi, has appreciated the fan support he has received after being diagnosed with Lymphoma, a form of cancer, earlier this week.

The legendary guitarist’s diagnosis came right in the middle of his band’s comeback trail with the original line-up after 32 years, which includes a release of a new album and tours.

Iommi’s diagnosis’ news hit hard on all the Sabbath fans and fellow musicians, who well-wished the guitarist from the core of their hearts and sent their prayers as well.

After hearing such love and support from the fans and fellow musicians, Iommi stated that he is overwhelmed by all the support and love he has received. He further added that he is eager to make full recovery at the earliest.

“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”, Iommi said.

Reports suggest that Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Ward and Geezer Butler would be joining Iommi in UK to continue working on the new album.
