Rock Report: Tony Iommi Honored At Dio Cancer Awards
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi was one of seven honorees at an L.A. fundraiser on Halloween for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.
Iommi, a cancer survivor, talked about how the diagnosis changed his outlook on life, figuring his days were numbered, but with the support of his wife and Sabbath bandmates, it gave him the strength to fight it and win.
Black Sabbath announced yesterday (November 1) that they will tour Australia in 2013. The band has written 15 songs for a new Sabbath album and are in the process of recording them for release next year.
Here’s the entire Black Sabbath reunion concert from earlier this year.
