(hennemusic) Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has posted a Christmas message to fans: "What a year! Certainly not the one I was expecting.
"Thanks to you all for your massive help and support, it was very encouraging. I'm still working on the album and managed to play three shows, not bad given the news a year ago. I'm looking forward to next year, seeing what you think of the record and touring as much as we're able.
"My Best Wishes to you all, I hope you have a great Christmas and New Year, most of all, stay positive."
Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2011 and underwent chemotherapy earlier this year. more on this story
