Tony Iommi Updates Fans On The NEW SABBATH Record & Reflects On 2012!
To say that BLACK SABBATH's Tony Iommi has had a tough year is an understatement. Opening the year, it was announced that Iommi was diagnosed with Lymphoma (a rare form of cancer). This resulted in the recording sessions for the NEW SABBATH album to be halted temporarily (the band is back at it now) and for the band to cancel their extensive European tour. Thankfully, Iommi's health has been progressing very smoothly.
Yesterday (December 21), Iommi posted the following end of the year message via his Facebook page:
“What a year! Certainly not the one I was expecting,” says Tony.
“Thanks to you all for your massive help and support; it was very encouraging.
“I’m still working on the [new Black Sabbath] album and managed to play three shows. Not bad given the news a year ago.
“I’m looking forward to next year, seeing what you think of the record and touring as much as we’re able.
“My best wishes to you all. I hope you have a great Christmas and New Year, most of all, stay positive.”
- Tony Iommi
We want to wish Tony the best wishes during this holiday season and for 2013. Keep on keeping on, brother!
