Bad news comes from one of the members of Black Sabbath, Tony Iommi. The guitarist has been diagnosed with early stages of lymphoma, which is a type of cancer involving cells of the immune system.

A statement on his website said that Iommi will undergo treatment and his bandmates will move from Los Angeles to London so that they can work with him on their first album in 33 years. "His bandmates would like everyone to send positive vibes to the guitarist at this time," the statement read.

It continued, "Iommi is currently working with his doctors to establish the best treatment plan - the 'Iron Man' of Rock & Roll remains upbeat and determined to make a full and successful recovery."

The album is still on schedule to be released this autumn. The statement did not say whether live dates are going to be affected. The reunited band are scheduled to headline Download Festival, which will take place between June 8 and 10 in Donington Park, England.
