Tony Iommi Completes Chemo Treatments


Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi says he has had his last dose of chemotherapy treatment for lymphoma.

Iommi broke the news in an update to his official website, telling fans he's happy for the milestone but still has a long way to go.

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

Sabbath is currently working on a reunion album, and the band was planning to hit the road this year until news came of Iommi's diagnosis. The legendary rockers were recording in Los Angeles and moved tracking to the UK so that Iommi could continue to record while receiving treatment.

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