Tony Iommi's Cancer Likely To Comeback

(hennemusic) Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi is sharing an update on his ongoing cancer battle. The guitarist recorded Black Sabbath's 2013 album, "13", and completed a world tour with the band while undergoing medical treatment since being diagnosed with blood cancer lymphoma in January of 2012. "When the doctors told me I had cancer I thought, 'That's it then'," Iommi tells The Mirror. "Cancer was death as far as I was concerned. I found a painful lump in my groin while I was in New York promoting my book. I thought it was my prostate acting up again, but Ozzy told me I should get it checked out. I came back to England and had an operation to reduce my prostate. It was painless but afterwards I needed a catheter." "When that came out I went to see the surgeon. He said: 'Good news on the prostate. It's been cut down to a sensible size and everything is good there. But on the lump we took out, we found follicular lymphoma.' It's a type of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma." Iommi was given an update from doctors, saying "The surgeon told me he doesn't expect the cancer to go away. There's a 30 per cent chance that it could, but more than likely it will come back and it could be any time." "I look at life differently now. I could be here another ten years or just one year - I don't know."

Kid Rock Says Rap-Rock 'Turned Out to Be Pretty Gay'

As Kid Rock promotes his upcoming album "First Kiss", he has also taken a critical look back at a musical movement that he helped popularize. While Rock rose to fame on the rap-rock wave of the late 1990s, he had managed to remain relevant by shifting musical gears, while many of his contemporaries have faded into obscurity. Rock addressed his current view of the rap-rock movement in a new op-ed that he wrote for England's Guardian newspaper. Here is an excerpt via Radio.com, "Rap-rock was what people wanted at the time, and they still love those songs at shows. But it turned into a lot of bulls- and it turned out to be pretty gay." He anticipated some blowback from the use of the term "gay" by writing, "If someone says you can't say 'gay' like that you tell them to go f- themselves. You're not going to get anything politically correct out of me."
