Ozzy Osbourne May Have Saved Tony Iommi's Life

(Classic Rock) Ozzy Osbourne is responsible for forcing Tony Iommi to confront his cancer, the Black Sabbath axe icon has revealed.

It was his bandmate who pushed him to see a doctor when he was suffering from groin pain, which later turned out to be lymphoma. And Iommi has credited the band with giving him something to focus on while he continues his fight against the disease.

He tells hometown paper The Birmingham Mail: "Ozzy was the one who kept on at me to go to the doctors because he was concerned about me. He has been very supportive since I was diagnosed.

"All the guys have been great. Even now, when we arrive at the studio, they ask how I'm feeling, if I'm up to it, making sure I'm okay." more on this story
