Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has completed chemotherapy treatment for his lymphoma and issued the following update on his health and treatment progress:

"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 and Geezer for coming over to England, it was a big incentive for me, we managed to work most days and have some great new tracks.

"And, importantly thanks again for your kind messages, hope to be seeing you soon."

Tony's The man. The best riff-er ever, imo, not to mention a fantastic man.

I'm confident he'll beat this one.
