Although original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward may be estranged from the pioneering heavy metal band, Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi definitely still cares about his former bandmate. Yesterday, we reported that Ward had successfully undergone surgery for diverticulitis. In response to the news, Iommi wished Ward the best via the guitarist's official website.
Black Sabbath just finished up their massively anticipated North American tour on Sept. 3 with a performance at the Los Angeles Sports Arena in California.

Although Tony Iommi's health has been improving since his early 2012 cancer diagnosis, some unfortunate news has been made public by the iconic Black Sabbath guitarist. Having thought his lymphoma was gone, Iommi was recently informed by his doctor that he most probably never be completely cancer-free.
Black Sabbath are getting ready for their new '13' album, a disc that is noticeably missing original drummer Bill Ward. The drummer held out of the band's reunion, citing a contract dispute, and while there was hope that something could be worked out, ultimately guitarist Tony Iommi says the band had to move on.
While bands may have a few bumps while making new records, it's nothing like what Black Sabbath dealt with while putting together the '13' album. Just as the metal legends were getting back together to work on new music, it was revealed that guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with cancerous lymphoma and needed to undergo treatment.
Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi is a godfather of heavy metal, but his career was almost cut short. As a 17-year-old, Iommi was involved in an industrial accident that resulted in the loss off the tips of middle and ring fingers on his right hand.
