Being a Rock Star is truly something special. What many forget is the fact that their rock gods are just people to. And can become afflicted with the same problems, issues and diseases that plague us little people. Black Sabbath's recent reunion and first new release in 33 years, have topped the music news and charts for months. But that hasn't stopped the issues of life from intruding on the band's new found fame.

Guitarist Tonni Iommi has cancer. And is trying to balance treatment with touring. "

"Well we've finished the US leg of our world tour. It was a bit longer than I would have liked as I've already been in hospital having another infusion.

"The tour was amazing though, you always hope it's going to go well but you never know, it's great to look out and see so many people of all ages." http://www.antimusic.com/news/13/September/ts10Black_Sabbath_Iommis_Updates_Fans_On_Cancer_Treatment_and_Tour.shtml#.UjS17n9CpSo

Here's hoping the cancer treatment is as successful as the tour. Rock on.
