Heavy metal legend diagnosed with lymphoma


According to information released by a publicist of the band Black Sabbath, guitarist Tommy Iommi has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

The only hint of the gravity of the disease was that it had been found in the early stages. The band, which has been recording the first new album from the original foursome in over three decades in Los Angeles, said they will move operations from LA to England to make things easier on Iommi as he begins unidentified treatment.

Last year, Iommi published his autobiography, "“Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven and Hell with Black Sabbath." The band had originally scheduled the launch of their world tour to begin in Moscow in late May, but with the diagnosis it is possible that this will be delayed.

The band has asked fans to send "positive vibes" to the legendary guitarist as he considers his treatment options.
