(Classic Rock) Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi has revealed the "interesting" way that he discovered his cancer was in remission. The 68-year-old guitarist, who was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2012 , was presenting the Spire Specialist Care Centre in Solihull with an award this summer when a journalist asked him about his health.

He tells UCR: "It was really interesting how I got the news. I only got it because I was presenting the hospital where I received treatment with an award, and a writer who I was doing an interview with asked me if I was in remission. I turned to my doctor and asked, 'Am I in remission?' The doctor said, 'Yes.' And that's how I got to know."

But Iommi is still cautiously optimistic on his road to recovery. He adds: "I'm always feeling around for lumps and bumps, and so I'm never comfortable. I had a friend that went into remission and she planned a big party, and then the cancer came back. You just never know." Read more here.
