Bill Ward to pull out of Black Sabbath tour?

Tony Iommi diagnosed with cancer

The 63 year old legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with cancer.

The news has rocked the band who recently reformed and have been hard at work on anew album with producer Rock Rubin.

A statement on their official Facebook page says… “With the news that Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with the early stages of lymphoma, his bandmates would like everyone to send positive vibes to the guitarist at this time. Iommi is currently working with his doctors to establish the best treatment plan. The Iron Man of Rock & Roll remains upbeat and determined to make a full and successful recovery. This comes as Black Sabbath are writing and recording in Los Angeles with producer Rick Rubin. They will now go to the UK to continue to work with Tony.”

It’s not certain how this will affect the upcoming tour…
