The Black Sabbath guitarist has been diagnosed with lymphoma, it is in the early stages though and he is working with doctors on a treatment plan.

Black Sabbath is set to do a big reunion tour this year, but that could be held up because original guitarist Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with lymphoma.  According to Blabbermouth.net Iommi remains upbeat about the situation and is figuring out a treatment plan.

Sabbaths big tour isn't suppose to kick off until this summer, so hopefully Iommi will have a speedy recovery.  The band was working in Los Angeles to work on their new album, but will move things to England so that Iommi doesn't have to travel.  We wish him the best.
