Here's some good news. Tony Iommi, thee mighty riff-maester of Black Sabbath, has announced that his cancer is in remission. He was originally diagnosed with stage 3 lymphoma. He told the Birmingham Mail: “I came back to hospital straight after we finished a round of European tour dates, and the good news is that everything is alright up to this point. I am in remission and hopefully, this situation will continue. The chemotherapy and the follow-up treatment appear to have done the trick – but I’m aware that it could come back one day. I have a blood test every six weeks at my GP’s, and I come in here at regular intervals for check-ups. That’s something that I’ll have to live with for the rest of my life, looking for any warning signs that it might be rearing its ugly head again.”
