Hiya,

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.

– Tony

Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma in January, just as the Black Sabbath reunion recording and tour was about to get underway.

Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler traveled to England to be with Tony while he underwent his treatments, allowing them to work on new material. Unfortunately, the treatments, along with the inability of the group to come to contract terms with fourth member Bill Ward, forced the cancellation of all but two of the reunion tour dates.
