Black Sabbath guitarist and father of the riff Tony Iommi has thanked his fans for their support following news that he has been diagnosed with lymphoma.
“I just want to say how overwhelmed I am with all your messages of support, thank you so much,” writes Iommi online.
“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,” an upbeat Iommi writes.
I am glad to see his attitude is positive. He’s gonna beat this shit. I just know it. I can feel it in my bones.
“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,” Iommi added.
“Well, not much else to say at this time, so thanks again. Bless you all.”
Good vibes, Tony. Nothing but good vibes, dude.
