Image Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi posted an update as he continues his battle with lymphoma. He made this statement via his Facebook:

Well, I've had the last dose of chemotherapy so hopefully my body will start to get back to normal soon, the steroids were the worse. I've now got three weeks of radiotherapy coming up which I'm told can be very tiring so we'll see. A big thanks to Ozzy [Osborne] 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.

While the band was forced to cancel tour dates, they continue to work on a new album - their first with their original lineup since Ozzy was fired. Iommi, who co-founded the band, has been the only constant member since their formation in 1969.
