    Black Sabbath guitar deity Tony Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma in early 2012 and has spent the last year undergoing six week rounds of chemotherapy, which is hard on the body. The band was forced to plan its schedule and touring around the guitarist's treatments, understandably so.

    Iommi shared the good news that he is wrapping his treatments this year in a website post, writing: "Best wishes for the New Year, after a such a brilliant 2013, it's going to be difficult to match it this year but we'll be having a go... We've some good things lined up for the coming year, firstly the Grammys, then some dates in the U.S. and Canada, and in the summer a quick trip round Europe. I should also be finishing my regular treatment and I'm hoping to not get so tired, all positive. Many thanks to you all for your continued support, we'd be nothing without you."

    Good luck to Tony Iommi in wrapping the chemo treatments, which take a lot out of him!
