Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Feared The Worst From Cancer: Black Sabbath News

On Friday Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Feared The Worst From Cancer was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Tony Iommi thought he'd "had it" when he was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, he's said. The Black Sabbath guitarist reflected on his experience with the disease at a Macmillan Cancer Support event in his home city of Birmingham earlier this week.

He invited passers-by to stand in an isolation box, to demonstrate how people can feel alone in a crowd when told they have cancer. Iommi told the Birmingham Mail: "It's terrible. You tend to isolate yourself and you can quite easily isolate yourself too much. As soon as they told me I'd got it, I went into shock. I thought, 'That's it - I've had it.' You think of nothing but, 'Am I going to die?'

"Some people get frightened and locked in this box, and they can't do anything. It really is a lonely time - to talk to somebody is probably the best therapy you can have." Read more - here.
