Bad news for the heavy metal and rock community, but we'll remain optimistic he can conquer the disease.
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with lymphoma and, according to a statement, "is currently working with his doctors to establish the best treatment plan."
The original band, including Ozzy Osbourne, had recently announced they were recording a new album in El Lay with music producer Rick Rubin and planning a tour.
Tony isn't letting cancer stop him from living though and the band will now record in the UK.
What can U do to help? Send good vibes his way!
The statement announcing the rocker's illness continued to read, "His bandmates would like everyone to send positive vibes to the guitarist at this time"
Consider it done, Tony! We'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers while you continue to rock on!
