TONY IOMMI RELEASES FIRST STATEMENT SINCE LYMPHOMA DIAGNOSIS
Earlier this week, we were saddened to report that legendary Black Sabbath guitarist has been diagnosed with lymphoma. Now Iommi has released a statement on the matter via his Facebook page:
“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,
Well, it sounds like Iommi is taking the news far better than I would. People say that a positive outlook can really make a difference when dealing with horrible circumstances such as this one… hopefully Iommi’s ongoing joie de vivre bodes well for his future.
