Iommi feels good
An update on Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi’s health—he says that he feels the first live show played after undergoing treatment for lymphoma went well. Iommi wasn’t sure at first if he could play a long set but he says it wasn’t a problem because there wasn’t a chance for him to feel tired. The show was last weekend in Birmingham, England.
